Karwar: Karnataka Dalit Sangharsha Samithi (KDSS) will organise a
three day state convention of dalits at Sirsi between 18th to 20th

While addressing the reporters, KDSS state convenor Lakshminarayan
Nagwar stated that the main aim of the convention is to enlighten the
KDSS office bearers about the aims and objectives of the Samithi, the
movements that the Samiti has launched for the betterment of the
dalits and the ill-effects of free economy and globalization. The
convention will also focus on dalit literature, culture, and
tradition, he added.

He asserted that the convention would also address the misconceptions,
where people have tried to equate dalit movement and naxal movement.
He averred that the doctrine of social justice propagated by B R
Ambedkar is misused today.

Prof G.K Govindraj will inaugurate the convention at Nisarga Dhama
near Yellapur Naka in Sirsi. Prof GS Siddalingaiah will deliver
valedictory speech on March 20, he informed. Samiti district convener
Shivaji Banavasi and other officer-bearers were present at the press
