THE Delhi state committee of the Dalit Shoshan Mukti Manch (DSMM), had organised a stall near RBI on Parliament Street in Delhi on April 14, to mark the 127th birth anniversary of Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar. CPI(M) Polit Bureau member Brinda Karat inaugurated the stall by garlanding Ambedkar’s photograph. She also addressed the gathering and said that Baba Saheb gave his entire life to the struggle against the varna system and caste system prevalent in the Indian society. Dr Ambedkar’s goal in life was to create an equal society free of injustice and oppression. She further said only by organising will we be able to realise the dream of Baba Saheb and create a just and equal society.
Brinda said that on the one hand the Modi government offers flowers and garlands to Dr Ambedkar’s portraits and on the other hand they fire bullets on the dalits. The Modi-Yogi government has charged Chandrashekhar, the dalit leader from Saharanpur, under NSA and has kept him captive. But an MLA, Kuldeep Sengar, accused in the Unnao rape case was roaming free until Friday, April 13, when the CBI finally took him into custody.
Ratan Gambhir sang a few songs on the occasion and was appreciated by the public. Dalit Shoshan Mukti Manch’s activists distributed literature among the people who were gathered at the Parliament Street. The literature was based on the ideologies of Baba Saheb.
DSMM urged everyone to reaffirm their commitment to the fight against inhuman injustice and oppression of all kinds and to intensify the fight. The programme was presided over by Nathu Prasad, general secretary, Dalit Shoshan Mukti Manch and was managed by DSMM president Brahmajeet Singh along with Rampal and Yashpal.
