KOLAR: Venkatagiraiah, convenor of Dalit Sangharasha Samithi, alleged that the political parties of all colours are trying to scuttle the Dalit movement by various means, including luring many prominent leaders.

The Dalits should unite and launch agitations to build a society where the socially downtrodden people can live with self respect, he said while inaugurating Dalit Jagruthi Samavesha here on Thursday.

The event was organised as part of 53rd death anniversary of B.R. Ambedkar. Lecturer of Government College for Boys K. Srinivas spoke. DSS district convenor Sulikunte ramesh presided over the function.
