Bhim Army objects to 13-point roster, takes protest to the Parliament

Sabrangindia 31 Jan 2019

In a statement, he said that the 13-point roster (department-wise reservation in faculty recruitment in universities and colleges) was a Manuvadi plan to exclude native residents from higher education. He said that they will thwart this conspiracy to eliminate Dalit and Tribal intelligentsia.



 
Bhim Army, a Dalit organisation, brought out a rally to the Parliament protesting the 13-point roster system in universities.  


 
In his tweet during the rally, Chandrashekhar Azad, the chief of the Bhim Army, said that one has to snatch their rights as they won’t be given by asking politely. “They are trying to make Indian universities wear the Janeyu. No Eklavya is now going to chop their thumb, if a Dronacharya demands it, Bhim army knows to answer back,” he said.
 
In a statement, he said that the 13-point roster (department-wise reservation in faculty recruitment in universities and colleges) was a Manuvadi plan to exclude native residents from higher education. He said that they will thwart this conspiracy to eliminate Dalit and Tribal intelligentsia.
 
“Manuvad wants us to stay away from policy making decisions and posts but we will claim our right to represent ourselves in policymaking. If the roster is not withdrawn and the 200-point roster not reinstated, we will take this protest against Manuvadi forces and universities that have implemented this policy, to the masses. Apart from Dalit and Tribal, other backward classes have zero representation in higher education. The OBCs should also come with us and support us against this injustice,” he said.
 
The army headquartered in Uttar Pradesh is reportedly undertaking a 200-km ‘rath yatra’ from Saharanpur to Delhi, stretched over several days for the mobilization of Dalits. The yatra is likely to start around 10 February and is a protest against the roster, 10% upper caste reservation and demanding reservation in private sector. At least one lakh people are reportedly coming to the national capital next month.

Migrant workers from rural parts of the country, who migrate to large cities, constitute a sizable segment of the urban population. Amid the lockdown, Migrant workers have not only lost their means to earn their daily bread but also their dignity. As they return home, walking or thrown together in jam-packed vehicle, some of them come face to face with state enforced Police brutality and, some, with death. Watch this heart-wrenching video to witness migrant workers' crisis in the nation right now.
