Komu Souharda Vedike meet in C'magaluru

Karnataka Komu Souharda Vedike will organise a state convention at Subhash Chandra Bose district stadium on December 28 and 29.

Speaking at a preparatory meeting at Ambedkar Bhavan here on Friday, Vedike secretary K L Ashok said like-minded people, including the Sufi saints from Rajasthan, will take part in the convention. The members of Dalit, farmers' and women associations will also participate, he added.

He stated that Human Rights activist Gowri Lankesh's sacrifice will not go waste and the forum will continue the fight launched by her.

Ashok said that the government has not been able to nab the culprits of her murder even after three months of the brutal incident.

Vedike Convener Gause Mohiyuddin said that there is a need to create a secure atmosphere in the Datta Peetha for the people of all beliefs. People belonging to all religions should be allowed to perform their rituals at the holy shrine, he demanded.

Raitha Sangha spokesperson K Krishnegowda suggested the forum to conduct conventions in rural areas and enlighten youths who have been made scapegoats by political parties.

JD(S) state secretary HH Devaraj, Dalit Sangharsh Samiti district coordinator K C Vasanth Kumar and city committee coordinator Nagaraj were present.
