Congress dubbed enemy of Dalits
Staff Correspondent Share
Nagaraj Molladi, vice-president of the BJP's SC Morcha, said on Friday
that the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh had come in for praise from Dalit
icon and architect of the Constitution B.R. Ambedkar.
Mr. Molladi was addressing Dalit party workers here.
However, some workers pointed out that Ambedkar had urged Dalits to
convert to Buddhism. They accused Mr. Molladi of distorting facts and
overlooking Ambedkar's opposition to the RSS concept of Hindutva. Mr.
Molladi, however, dismissed these contentions and said that Ambedkar
had been wrongly projected by vested interests.
Exhorting party workers to free their community from the
"stranglehold" of the Congress, he said that the true enemy of Dalits
and Ambedkar was the Congress.
Ambedkar was curtailed at every step during his fight for social
justice and political renaissance. However, he conceded that the BJP
had a lot of catching up to do with the Congress, which had a deeper
footprint and resonance among Dalits, Adivasis and large sections of
the Backward Classes.
Chairman of the Dr. B.R. Ambedkar Development Corporation A.R.
Krishnamurthy urged party workers to spread awareness about the
anti-cattle slaughter Bill. "It is time Dalits stopped beef eating and
alcohol abuse. You must take this message to the people in your
community and garner support for the Bill," he said.
He asked the workers to create awareness about the "dangerous
recommendations" made in the National Commission on Religious and
Linguistic Minorities led by Justice Ranganath Misra.
