DSHS demands stern action against Kanaka Nade organisers
Bengaluru: The Dalit Swabimani Horata Samiti has urged the Director General of Police Omprakash to take stern against the organisers of Kanaka Nade calling it an anti-constitutional act.
Chalo Udupi march was organised as part of a protest against the atrocities on Dalits and the deprived. Intellectuals followed by thinkers, writers and Dalits have actively raised their voice against the injustices and atrocities on Dalits and the deprived. They have also called for a ban on pankti bheda practice.
The Namo Brigade and other Hindu outfits have been organising a programme called Kanaka Nade. The founder of Namo Brigade Chakravarty Sulibele, VHP Udupi district unit president Vilas Nayak, Bajrang Dal Convenor Dinesh Mendon, Sri Ram Sene leader Pramod Muthalik and others are behind organising of Kanaka Nade.
The programme aims at cleaning the streets in which the Dalits marched during the Udupi Chalo event. If any such event is organised we will hold severe agitation, the forum warned.
The event itself questions the constitutional integrity, the organisers should be booked under the SC/ST Atrocities Act.
The Swabhimani event will be held during the Kanaka Nade programme. The organisers have asked for police protection.
Bhaskar Prasad, Ananth Nayak, Harish Naik and others met the DGP and submitted a memorandum.
