"Poor, Dalits can benefit only in a clean political system"

Staff Reporter

DINDIGUL: If the political system were clean and non-corrupt, the poor
and downtrodden including Dalits would get all benefits fully and
their living standard would automatically go up, said Prakash Yashwant
Ambedkar, grandson of B.R. Ambedkar.

He was addressing a district-level meeting of India Kudiyarsu Katchi
held here on Sunday evening. The country have enough resources and
component for Adi Dravida welfare in the State was around Rs.1,700
crore. If the government properly disbursed the funds, each Dalit
would get at least Rs.20,000, a month.

Corrupt system was responsible for pathetic condition of Dalits. The
India Kudiyarsu Katchi should be equipped to elect at least five MLAs
in the forthcoming Tamil Nadu Assembly election to air the grievances
of Dalits before the high office. "You need total commitment and fight
yourselves to achieve it."

Hitting hard on 2G spectrum scam, he said on one hand, there was an
opinion that Dalits had no will power, capacity and were
intellectually backward. But former Minister Raja had shown that he
was a brilliant Dalit by manipulating the system and earning so much
money through illegal means. The loss of Rs.1.70 lakh crore was almost
equal to the budget of Tamil Nadu and other states.

He advised people not to sell votes for Rs.5,000 or even for Rs.500 as
this would make them happy for one day only.
