Dr. Ambedkar’s statue unveiled at Kumbarakoppal

Mysore/Mysuru: Maintaining that everyone is slowly getting to know the contributions of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar to the country, Chalavadi Mahasabha President and former IAS officer K. Shivaram said that people could not imagine what would have been the fate of oppressed sections had not Ambedkar born here. He was speaking after unveiling Dr. B.R. Ambedkar’s statue at a programme organised under the aegis of Adishakti Kalikadevi Seva Samiti at Ambedkar Colony in Kumbarakoppal here on Sunday.

Asserting that no one has the right or powers to alter or amend the Constitution, Shivaram contended that no one has the capability to script the Constitution just like Dr. Ambedkar did.

He observed that Ambedkar wrote the constitution keeping in mind the pains and trauma suffered by Dalits and other oppressed and disadvantaged sections of the society.

Contending that it seems that everyone needs Dr. Ambedkar now as even people from upper castes are seeking reservation, he said that such an Ambedkar is continued to be seen in a limited perspective. Regretting that some sections of the  society who are seeking reservation now had so far failed in understanding that they too need Ambedkar as it was he who mandated reservation in education and jobs, Shivaram opined that truly deserving sections need to get reservation at least now.

Stating that most other communities are well-organised, Shivaram wanted Dalit communities to take more steps in getting organised. Getting organised and maintaining unity is key for a community to become developed, he added.

Chamundeshwari MLA G.T. Devegowda, who spoke after unveiling Basavanna’s engraved painting  and inaugurated the Library that is adjacent to the statue, said that Dr. Ambedkar ensured that every community gets a fair pie in power. Calling upon all the sections to get educated and follow Dr. Ambedkar’s principles and ideologies, he said that Dalits should take on positions where they can ensure that the Constitutional aspirations are fulfilled in toto.
