Bangalore: The former Minister and Congress MLA G. Parameshwar on Sunday asserted that Dalits should unite and continue their struggle to secure justice and equality in society.

Speaking at a seminar organised by Karnataka State Dalit Sangarsha Samithi (KSDSS) to mark their leader Kudmal Ranga Rao’s 150 birth anniversary, Mr. Parameshwar said it was unfortunate that even after so many years of Independence, Dalits were still considered as outcastes. Hailing Kudmal Ranga Rao’s contribution towards the uplift of Dalits, Mr. Parameshwar said: “Despite being a Brahmin, Kudmal did so much for Dalits. It is not enough if we just remember him. We should follow his principles in our day to day life.”
