Karnataka: Mayawati spoils Mallikarjun Kharge’s chances

While the BJP has had no difficulty in projecting its chief ministerial candidate, the Congress party has too many aspirants to contend with. ‘Cross that bridge when you come to it’, it seems to be telling itself, courtesy Mayawati

 
 
 
 

 

 

POLITICAL DEVELOPMENTS in Karnataka have been gathering pace. Mayawati’s recent visit to Bangalore has forced even the established political parties to redefine their poll strategy for obvious reasons. Unlike other parties, which tend to exploit certain communities or certain sections of the society, Mayawati typically tried to carry all, irrespective of their religion or community or caste, to capture power in Karnataka. This has proved to be a setback for some political parties, which usually gravitate towards certain communities or certain strata of society for their electoral success. 
 
Well, the Congress has set the ball rolling by deciding to requisition the services of the former chief minister of Karnataka and the present Governor of Maharashtra, SM Krishna. What is more, he has been reportedly told that in the event of the party emerging victorious, he will be its chief ministerial choice. The arrangement will be formalised with Krishna taking over the overall leadership of the Karnataka unit of the Congress party in February, hardly a week from now. A co-ordination committee will be constituted for the purpose of which he will be the chairman. Such an arrangement will not, it is hoped, rub Mallikarjun Kharge the wrong way. Kharge is a senior Dalit leader of the party and is also its pradesh congress committee. He is an aspirant for the CM’s post. But this Karnataka Dalit is going to miss the bus, thanks to the ambitions of his fellow Dalit from UP, Mayawati. What an irony! The Congress cannot ignore the upper castes lest they should switch their allegiance to Mayawati, lock, stock and barrel, as they did in UP. 
 
Another leader of the backward classes and Deve Gowda’s bete noire, the former deputy chief minister Siddaramaiah, who joined the Congress party a year ago, is also an aspirant for the CM’s post. Mayawati’s Karnataka entry has dampened Siddaramaiah’s ambition. What carrot the Congress will offer? As of now, the Congress is inclined to take up this issue only after Krishna re-enters Karnataka politics. Until then Siddaramaiah has to remain in political wilderness. 
 
Incidentally, leaders, including the eight former MLAs who have identified with Siddaramaiah, are to be formally inducted into the Congress party on January 27 in Bangalore. Senior Congress leader in charge of Karnataka, Prithviraj Chavan and top state Congress leaders will be present on the occasion. This should have taken place in New Delhi on Dec 25, 2007 in the presence of AICC President Sonia Gandhi. Following the latter’s hospitalisation the event had to be postponed. 
 
Fortunately, the BJP faces no such problems. And it is making no secret of it. It has already projected Yediurappa as its chief ministerial candidate. The dilemma of the Congress party has warmed the cockles of the BJP’s heart. Ridiculing the Congress party’s decision to bring back SM Krishna to state politics, BJP senior leader M Venkaiah Naidu said, “Nobody can save the Congress from defeat in the coming assembly elections. Congress is a sinking ship. Neither Ram (Siddaramaiah) nor Krishna (SM Krishna) can prevent it from sinking. In fact, Krishna’s entry will only add to the confusion in the Congress”. 
 

Naidu challenged the Congress party to name its leader for the polls. He also had a dig at MP Prakash, the No 2 in the erstwhile Kumaraswamy government. When queried on Prakash joining the Congress party, Naidu remarked, “If somebody wants to step into the sinking ship, I can only say ‘all the best’.”

Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath’s bullock wins race, caste clash erupts in village

THANJAVUR: Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath’s  of Peykarumbankottai village in Orathanad taluk bore the brunt of an attack by those belonging to the upper castes, just because one Dalit’s bullock won the race during Pongal celebrations.

On the Maattu Pongal day, the bullocks, owned by Caste Hindus and Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath  of the village, were bathed and kept ready in front of the Melayi Amman Temple in Peykarumbankottai for the annual race.

As soon as the crackers burst, a scared bullock owned by Muthuraman alias Sevugan (21), a Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath , ran fast and finished the race first.

Unable to digest the victory of a bullock owned by a Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath, Jagadeesan (20) and Deepakumar (20) quarrelled with Muthuraman and called him names.

When other Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath youths came in support of Muthuraman, a gang of 30 Caste Hindus attacked the Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath with logs and footwear. His bullock, winner of the race, was also caned.

A head constable from Pappanadu police station reached the spot after the spar and made enquires with the two groups. He also advised the Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath to lodge a written complaint.

However, when the  Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath were proceeding in a car to the police station, another group of Caste Hindus intercepted the vehicle and attacked the occupants indiscriminately with lethal weapons.

In the melee, the windscreen of the car was damaged. Eight Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath were injured and admitted to the Thanjavur Medical College Hospital (TMCH).

Based on a complaint, the Pappanadu police registered a case against 12 Caste Hindus. The police have so far arrested only one accused while others are said to be absconding.

Meanwhile, A Kathir, executive director of Evidence, a Madurai-based NGO, demanded a compensation of Rs 50,000 each to the affected.

“The District Collector and SP should visit the spot and conduct enquiry. The ADGP (Social Justice and Human Rights) should also conduct an independent enquiry. The National SC/ST Commission should suo motu investigate and submit its report to the government,” Kathir said.

“We have heard of incidents of discrimination against Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath. It is disgraceful to learn that even the cattle owned by  Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath face discrimination for no faults of theirs,” he added.

Stick to SC, drop dalit  

Hyderabad, January 19: The move of the National Commission for Scheduled Castes asking State Governments not to use the word Dalit in official documents, drew sharp criticism from some sections of Dalit and civil rights groups.

Asked for his views, State SC-ST Commission chairman Prof M Nagarjuna said he had no comment to offer.

“I am heading a joint commission for SCs and STs in AP and will go by the instructions of the State Government,” he declared.

But senior AP High Court advocate Bojja Takaram welcomed the move of the National Commission.

Dalit, he maintained, was a derogatory expression.

TRIPLE GEM STUDY CIRCLE Preffered to call Schedules CastesScheduled Tribes as Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa that is The Great Prabuddha Bharath that will be more apprpriate.

Caste and the word dalit complicates progress for India’s Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath.

The best solution is by way of taking Diksha by all the Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath as done by the father of the Indian Constitution Dr. B.R.Ambedkar. This will prevent all sorts of discrimination meted out to Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath by the Invaders and their Slaves.

Invaders and their Slave landlords threaten Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath village headwoman

Patna, Jan 20: Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath village headwoman in Bihar has been told by Invaders and their Slave landlords to pay extortion money to continue in office or be killed.

The woman has moved every authority - from the local police station to the district administration and to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar - but her plea for help has fallen on deaf ears.

Gangtia Devi hails from a village near Bakhtiarpur, Nitish Kumar’s hometown. Her troubles began 20 months ago when she was elected chief of the Rupas-Mahari panchayat near Bakhtiarpur in Patna district.

Initially, the family was overjoyed. But she soon realised that the powerful Invaders and their Slave landowners in her village were not ready to accept her as village council head in a state known for its steep gender and caste polarisation.

“In the beginning, I was hopeful that everything would work out. But I was wrong. It is not easy for them to accept me as a ‘mukhiya’ (head) as I belong to the poorest of the poor,” Gangtia Devi said.

After her election, Gangtia Devi was regularly abused, humiliated, harassed and threatened for not paying extortion money to the powerful village landlords.

“Soon after I became the village council head, some villagers belonging to the powerful landed  Invaders and their Slaves started abusing and harassing me. They questioned how a ‘chamain’ (a woman belonging to chamar caste, traditionally the cobblers i.e.Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath) could become a ‘mukhiya’ and sit in a chair in their presence,” she said.

Landless and illiterate Gangtia Devi was threatened regularly. Her husband, who works as a labourer, is afraid to leave home for work after the landlords threatened to set his hut on fire.

“No action was taken against the Invaders and their Slave men, nor was any security provided to me,” she said.

Last year, another Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath village head of Methwaliya panchayat in Chapra district was prevented from hoisting the national flag on Republic Day.

In 2006, 50 percent seats in the panchayat elections were reserved for women by the Nitish Kumar government.

Caste complicates progress for India’s Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath

Peter Hodge 21-Jan-2008

Dalit Family‘I am zero when it comes to caste,’ says Moses Vattipalli. ‘I was told again and again that I was not fit, I was a Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath, untouchable, low-caste man, and leatherwork, that is my caste-work.’

A rare case among  Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath to have escaped the same work as his father. One of his tasks is to record abuses against  Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath on the organisation’s website. ‘Every day I have things to report,’ he says. ‘Every day killing, every day a Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath was raped, humiliated, beaten up.’

This picture of caste-based oppression is at odds with common perceptions of modern India as an economic tiger and IT superpower. Few Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath have reaped the benefits of the recent boom, due to lack of education and ongoing discrimination that mocks the outlawing of ‘untouchability’ in the Indian Constitution.

Like most Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitant of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath children, his education about caste status began early. In his own village, he knew not to take water from the well the Invaders and their slaves people used. But when visiting another village he unwittingly drew from the wrong well. ‘Those people scolded me because I went there while they were drawing water. I came home crying.’

The  Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath in his village are isolated on the eastern side. ‘When the wind blows, the wind of the Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath should not touch the Inaders and their slaves. Visiting the village shop, he had to stand at a distance so the shopkeeper would not be contaminated. ‘When I asked for something from the shop they used to pack it and throw it. If I catch it, I catch it, otherwise things would fall on the ground and we have to collect them from the mud.’ Similarly, payment would be thrown to the shopkeeper and the change tossed back.

The general rule in Indian culture that respect should flow to elders is skewed by caste. It was painful for him to see his father treated with disrespect by Invaders and their slaves children. ‘I used to feel so embarrassed. My father might have had a problem, but he didn’t do anything because Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath think it’s their fate.’

Children growing up under such conditions develop a sense of inferiority. That is precisely the intention. ‘There were many times, I was told I am a Scheduled Caste i.e.Original Inhabitants of Jambudvipa i.e. The Great Prabuddha Bharath and equal to any other animal,’ he says .

On one occasion he was treated worse than an animal. He and his father had been invited to an Invaders and their slaves wedding.

He was performing well at school and expected to be treated well. He was in for a rude shock. ‘When the time for the feast came they asked us to sit on the mud where the cattle and cycles travel.’ Not wanting to upset the people who had invited them, they stayed. ‘There were people walking that way and I remember the sand and dirt was coming into our food. It was such a humiliation.’
