Social activist Lolaksha complimented Udupi Paryaya Pejavar Mutt seer Sri Vishweshatheertha Swami and other seers for taking up the issue of untouchability as one of the topics of discussion at the Dharma Samsad in Udupi. He urged the Samsad to pass a resolution towards the elimination of untouchability.
Addressing reporters here on Friday, he said that despite many efforts by social reformers, untouchability has not been eliminated from Indian society. The seers at Dharma Samsad should come up with a solution for the same, he said.
He sought to know from the Pejavar seer whether instituting Dalits to Vaishnava tradition or visiting Dalit colonies had any effect on the removal of untouchability.
The Dharma Samsad should pass a resolution to urge the Central government to frame laws towards ensuring the allocation of resources as per the population of SC/ST communities. He said a law should be passed by the parliament to ensure political representation to the Dalit community. The deprived class must be guaranteed of education and right to resources, he said.
