Rajanarsimha's call to Dalits
Monday, 12 March 2012

Hyderabad, March 12:

The Deputy Chief Minister Damodara Rajanarsimha on Sunday felt that
Dalits should exhibit their strength that they have the capability to
rule the country.

Speaking at Sree Santh Shiromani Guru Ravidasji Maharaj International
Sammelan held in L B Stadium here, Damodara Rajanarsimha said that
through spirituality, we should unitedly create awareness in our
society. Self respect was important to the man more than food and
shelter.

"I want to bring awareness in my caste and ensure respectful and
dignified life to them", he added.

The Deputy Chief Minister underlined the need to fight against social
evils. There was also bring chance in my caste, which faced
discrimination and humiliation earlier days. The selfish interests
among the people were also creating caste discrimination. We should
derive inspiration from Baba Saheb Ambedkar to Ravi Das, who
inculcated spirituality in Samarulu (Charmakarulu). About 700 years
ago, Ravi Das discoursed to the charmakars not to lose self respect
and dignity. He also stressed on the need for socialism in those days
also.

"By inculcating self respect and confidence in our caste, we should
answer to the problems being faced from the society. I decided to
conduct the meeting to unite sub-caste of Dalits", the Deputy Chief
Minister made it clear.

Rajanarsimha also made it clear that he would not tolerance, if any
one tries to politicize the meeting. After 18 years, the AICC
President Mrs Sonia Gandhi has provided the opportunity of Deputy
Chief Minister post to him, who belongs to Samalu community. Such
meetings would also be conducted in all districts. We should rise to
the position of questiong the society.

Nearly 6,000 people attended the spiritual meeting. Rajya Sabha member
Nandi Yellaiah, the former MP Mallu ravi, MLAs – Chandra Venkata
Veeraiah, A Suresh, Kamalamma, Arepalli Mohan, Lathi Venkata Swami,
former Minister Mareppa , former MLA Ganga Ram and others attended the
meeting. (NSS)
