[ZESTCaste] Dalits plan parallel function

Dalits plan parallel function
Mandya, Apr 11, DHNS

Dr B R Ambedkar, the architect of the Indian Constitution is
remembered by everybody for his rich contributions to the country.

His birth anniversaries are celebrated by one and all across the
country. But in Mandya there has been inordinate delay in the
construction of the Ambedkar Bhavan, for the reasons best known to the
authorities concerned.

Rumours are rife that if the district administration fails to assure
that adequate funds would be released for the bhavan, a parallel
function would be held in the city.

It is alleged that both the elected representatives and district
administration have totally neglected the bhavan being coming up in
Subhash Nagar. The leaders of various dalit organisations had even
expressed their displeasure over the snail's pace of works at a
preliminary meeting held recently.

DSS leader Guruprasad opined that boycotting the government function
was not right but those not willing to attend are free to hold a
parallel function.

He also flayed the political parties for their assurances which were
forgotten after the polls. The dalit organisations are united and
would carry on their struggle.

Ambedkar Bhavan Horata Samiti president Putta Ankaiah said that five
years have passed since the beginning of the works of the bhavan.

It was estimated to cost around ` 5.5 cr at the beginning, which is
sure to manifold now.

Chief Minister Yeddyurappa has assured ` 5 cr for the construction of
the bhavan during his visit to the city for distributing Bhagyalakshmi
bonds. The district administration too has failed to rake up the
issue, he alleged.
