[ZESTCaste] Dalit Mahasabha to launch movement

Andhra Pradesh - Vijayawada

Dalit Mahasabha to launch movement

Special Correspondent

VIJAYAWADA: Andhra Pradesh Dalit Mahasabha is going to initiate a
socio-political movement to mark 25 years of its existence. It will
begin with a 'socio-political' conference that will be presided over
by Dalit Mahasabha founder president Katti Padma Rao on Saturday.
Dalit leader from Tamil Nadu and Dravidar Kazagham president K.
Veeramani will be the chief guest of the conference that will begin at
the Railway Institute at 10 a.m.

Addressing a press conference, Mr. Padma Rao trashed all the arguments
put forward by leaders of the united Andhra movement saying that the
arguments do not hold water. He said the division of the State into
Telangana and Seemandhra would give a boost to the dalits politically
by reducing the numerical strength of the forward castes in the
legislative Assemblies.

He said that in this debate for the division of the State, the
benefits to Seemandhra in case of a bifurcation from Telangana were
not being highlighted. Andhra Pradesh Dalit Mahasabha would take up
the task of highlighting the benefits of the division of the state for
Seemandhra, he said.

He said Dalit Mahasabha would also bring into discussion and debate
the argument put forward by B.R.Ambedkar for small states including
the very strong case he made for a separate capital for every four
crore people.

Mr. Padma Rao said that the dalits of Karamchedu and Tsundur who waged
a war against upper caste oppression in various forms and come out
victorious would be facilitated at the conference.

Andhra Pradesh Dalit Mahasabha president Chintapalli Guruprasada Rao
was present.
