Mangaluru: Handover Samaja Bhavan in Harijana Colony to SC/ST Community – KRDSS

Mangaluru: A press meet was held at the Press Club Urwa by Karnataka Rajya Dalita Sangharsha Samiti here, on December 18.

Addressing the mediapersons, district convener of the Karnataka Rajya Dalita Sangharsha Samiti Sridhar Dadalkad said that the conference hall named “Samaja Bhavana” at Harijana Colony, Indiranagar, Haleyangadi was constructed in the year 1990-91 using the funds from Rozgar Yojana and the SC/ST Reserve fund which was to be used exclusively for the SC/ST community. The same building was demolished and reconstructed in the year 2011-2012 and it was not handed back to the SC/ST community for use. Moreover, the portrait of Dr Ambedkar painted in the hall has been removed.

“We have asked the Assistant Commissioner of Police Panambur to instruct the Panchayat authorities to hand over Samaja Bhavana, which was constructed for our use.”

Sridhar also said wrongful disposition of their premises amounted to act of atrocity against the community. “Hence we want necessary action to be taken and justice be given to our community,” he added.
