“Ambedkar gave new dimensions to the oppressed class with his revolutions,” said the registrar of evaluation of University of Mysore, Prof J Somashekar.
He was speaking at the Ambedkar Jayanti organised by the department of Communication and Journalism held at University of Mysore on Thursday.
“It is a welcome move to organise the Ambedkar Jayanti by the department of communication. Ambedkar is symbol of knowledge. When there was no scope for inclusive write ups in Journalism, Ambedkar worked as a journalist. He was a voice to the voiceless. Youths should try to walk on the path shown by him,” he added.
Chairperson of the department Dr Usharani, president of Dalit Welfare Trust Shantharaju, president of the Dasara exhibition authority, Siddaraju, Prof Mahesh Chandra Guru, Puttaswamy, Sapna, Mamatha and others were present.
