Mangalore, October 10: Dhakshina Kannada is marred with communal
politics despite being the district of the educated people in the
state, said Satya Bhadravati, state convener, Dalit Sangharsh Samiti
(Krishnappa faction).

Speaking after inaugurating the valedictory ceremony of district level
membership drive of the organisation at Ravindra Kalabhavan here, he
called upon the Dalits to come out of the shades of communalist
politics to overcome their problems.

Stating that the Mangalore city police solved the Dalit taxi driver
Govardhan murder case only after his organization exerted pressure on
the department, he opined that the district administration is delaying
the construction of Ambedkar Bhavan construction due to the lack of
unity among Dalit communities.

Dalits should strengthen the DSS, through their social commitment and
put an end to all their problems by a new movement, he said.

Mr Bhadravati said that DSS is working based on mass leadership,
through which it had succeeded in stopping 'bettale-seve' (nude
services) in Sagar Taluk despite the staunch opposition from RSS.

Dalit leader M Devdas presided over the function. Gangadhar Shimoga,
Fakir Karwar, Srinivas Shekar Hejmadi, Vijayraj, Sundar Ullal were
present on the occation.

District convener Krishnananda D delivered introductory remarks. RC
Amin welcomed the gathering. Shekar Chilimbi proposed vote of thanks.
Raghu k Yakkar compered the programme.
