Special Correspondent

KOZHIKODE: B.R. Ambedkar's death anniversary was observed under the auspices of the Kerala Dalit Federation here on Wednesday.

Inaugurating a meeting on the occasion, Federation secretary T.P. Bhaskaran said recent attempts to desecrate an Ambedkar statue in Uttar Pradesh clearly showed that at least a section of society continued to be hostile towards Dalits. Federation activists took out a procession protesting against the alleged attempts to insult the Ambedkar statue.
