Mangaluru, Aug 24: Samatha Sainik Dal general secretary Lolaksha has welcome the suggestion given by Mohan Bhagwath, the chief of RSS, to have a conversation between people who are in favor of ‘Reservation’ and against it.
“We feel, initiating a comprehensive and multidimensional dialogue on ‘reservation’ is the need of the hour as we have variety of wrong notions about the concept of reservation envisaged in the Constitution and the way it’s being implemented by the State,” he stated in a media release issued here.
“We strongly feel that in the larger interests of the nation in general and the marginalized people in particular, we have to analyze the positive and negative implications made by the ‘Reservation’ on the core values enshrined in the Constitution, i.e. Justice, Equality, Liberty and Fraternity,” he said.
He said, Samatha Sainik Dal, founded by Dr B R Ambedkar, is ready to organize a historic National Consultation or a Round Table Conference on Reservation at Bengaluru and invite Mr Bhagwath to inaugurate the programme on 24th September, the Poona Pact day, or on any date of his choice in the month of October. The Constitutional Experts, Legal Luminaries, Social Thinkers, Experts from different fields and leaders from various organizations and Political Parties will also be invited to this Consultation programme.
In spite of sharp reaction given by eminent political leaders like Ms. Mayavathi, Mr Ram Vilas Paswan, Mr. Ramdas Athawale, Mr. PL Punia and Others, the Dalit thinkers and activists are always ready to have a conversation, in a harmonious atmosphere, with anti reservationists, said Lolaksha adding that the enlightened people shall not forget that the Dalit thinkers are always having an open minded approach towards all types of criticism on all policies and thoughts.
