Following a padayatra by Pejawar seer to the Dalit colonies in the city, Maadaara Channaiah Swamiji had offered to go on a padayatra into Brahmin colonies as part of his attempt to steer the social change further.
He arrived in the city on Tuesday night and stayed as a guest at the residence of a Brahmin family. Next morning, before setting off on the padayatra, he came to Krishna Dhama and met the Pejawar Seer.
During the interaction, Pejawar seer stressed on the fact that Dalits were indeed part of Hindu religion and had to stay as members of the faith and Maadara Channaiah Swamiji said Dalits had bigger issues such as dignity, discrimination, hunger and livelihood as their priority and hence, conversion was something that was not of immediate importance.
Minister Suresh Kumar joined the padayatra for a brief while at 8 am when it began. Post-padayatra, the Maadara seer along with Pejawar seer addressed the gathering at Rama Mandira and said he was happy with the enthusiasm among people to bring about the social shift. |
Later, he addressed a gathering of members of Samarasya Vedike and Rashtriya Swayamsevaka Sangha at RSS main office Madhava Kripa here.
