Dalits lack unity to be a strong force: Prof Malagatti

Litterateur Prof Arvind Malagatti in a seminar on Friday pointed that the Dalits, despite being in large numbers in the state, haven’t yet emerged as a strong political force to reckon with.

Unlike political unity among Lingayats and Vokkaligas, the political differences among Dalit leaders have kept them away from emerging as a strong voice, Prof Malagatti said at the seminar organised by Vishwa Mytri Buddhivihar and Federation of Dalit Organisation at Town Hall.

For Dalits to be a strong political voice, he said, unity would play a vital role which is conspicuously absent among them.

University of Mysore Professor D Anand, Prof Shanmugam and Mysuru City Corporation member Puroshottam were present.
