DELHI: DSMM Commemorates Death Anniversary of Dr B R Ambedkar

THE Dalit Shoshan Mukti Manch (DSMM), Delhi state committee  organised a commemoration meeting at Manakpura, Karol Bagh on December 6, 2016 to mark the death anniversary of Dr B R Ambedkar. The meeting began with Subhashini Ali, CPI(M) Polit Bureau member paying floral tributes to a portrait of Dr Ambedkar. In her speech Subhashini Ali highlighted the various struggles of Dr Ambedkar and called for the need to change the present social system of casteism, exploitation and injustice on the basis of Ambedkar’s ideas. Further, she recounted that December 6 marks the date of demolition of Babri Masjid that was a heinous attack on the constitution and our composite culture by Hindu communalists. Those responsible for this crime are controlling the levers of state power today. It is therefore all the more important to rouse the people against them and their divisive and anti-national agenda.

 Others speakers at the meeting included Ajay, Dilip, Brahmjit Singh and Nathu Prasad. The meeting was presided over by Rampal. The speakers pointed out that December 6 was important for two reasons – the death anniversary of Dr Ambedkar and the demolition of Babri Masjid. This day should therefore be observed as a day against both casteism and communalism. This would be a befitting homage to the framer of the Indian constitution Baba Saheb Bhimrao Ambedkar
