People's movement needs to be strengthened: Devanur Mahadeva

Socialists must take charge to create better society, says writer

 Writer Devanur Mahadeva on Sunday said that there is a need to strengthen the people’s movement to usher in positive changes in the society.

Speaking to reporters on the conference ‘Bharata mattu Karnataka prastuta sandharba-jana paryayada sadhyathegalu’ to be held at Patil Puttappa Sabha Bhavan in Dharwad on July 9 and 10, the veteran Kannada writer said that people’s movements have taken back seat in recent years.

Organisations, legislators, political leaders are playing to the tunes of corporates, he lamented. “The elected representatives should look beyond their caste. The legislators are not bringing people-friendly legislations. Every caste has good and progressive thinkers but they are being ignored by the vested interests. Socialists must be brought in the front line to create a better society,” said the writer.

KRRS general secretary Badagalapura Nagendra, briefing about the conference, said that the state has no powerful force to oppose various irregularities and modernisation that is never going to help farmer and labour community.

“S P Shukla, former Finance and Commerce secretary, government of India, Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan of Swaraj Abhiyan, social activists S R Hiremath and H V Vasu will take part in the conference,” he said.

Farmer leaders Pacche Nanjunda Swamy, Parushuramegowda of Jana Sangrama party and Haluru Shivakumar were present.
