    Modi bats for dalits to solemnize Hindu weddings - The Times of India

    GANDHINAGAR: That Dalits are not even allowed entry into temples in some pockets of Gujarat has not stopped the Narendra Modi government from coming up with the revolutionary idea of training 'safai kamdars' or manual scavengers in karma-kand (Hindu religious rituals).

    The move was endorsed by the state budget presented in the assembly earlier this week—a couple of days after BSP chief Mayawati announced her prime-ministerial ambitions, throwing her hat into a ring already occupied by Modi's.

    Gujarat's social justice department has proposed a new provision in the budget to train safai kamdars in Vedic religious rituals, a Brahmin monopoly till now. A provision of Rs 22.50 lakh has been made for the programme in the budget for 2013-14.


    The move is aimed at helping Modi, himself belonging to an OBC caste, gain greater support among backward castes across the country. It is learnt that Modi plans to attend marriage ceremonies solemnized by priests from the most oppressed of all Dalit communities.

    Under the proposed scheme, safaikamdars and their children will be trained for karma-kand at reputable institutions such as SolaBhagvatVidyapith and Somnath Sanskrit University. "The government will ensure reasonable employment through this training," said an official. Dalit-rights activists have welcomed the decision. "The move is reformist," said ManjulaPradeep of Dalit-rightsorganisationNavsarjan. "We appreciate it. The state government should seriously address issues such as untouchability, ban on the entry of Dalits in temples, social and economic boycott, forced migration and manual scavenging."

    Recently, about 100 Dalit families of Galsana village in Ahmedabad were prevented from entering the village temple, leading to clashes between communities. In September, the state government's role was criticized when three Dalit youths were killed in police firing in Thangadh in Surendranagar.

    Could it be a possible alliance with BSP in 2014? Mayawati can bring 15-20 crucial seats that BJP might require to come back in power. Nitin Gadkari was against any alliance with either BSP or SP. May be Modi thinks otherwise.

    Really.

    Modi has not expressed wishes to become a Pm. Behenji has
    Modi does not appease. Behenji openly does
    Modi is Indian first. Dalit later. Behenji is dalit first Indian later
    Modi has not made any personal fortune in his 10 years as a CM, Behenji has made over 2200 crores
    Modi appeals to both upper and backward class hindu, behenji appeals to a small section of backward classes
    Modi has changed the way of governance in Gujarat, behenji has maintained the status quo in UP.

    Now do you still think modi is reactive to crass populism of behenji?

    BJP cannot sustain itself for long on the basis of upper caste goodwill/sentiment, especially with an OBC in charge of affairs.

    I guess one won't hold ones breath for a similar course of action to come from S.P, INC, CPI socialist/egalitarian crowd eh??

    Under Behenji's last rule UP had average 7% growth rate, improved infrastructure in many cities like Lucknow and Noida, improved law and order situation. And UP was already underdeveloped and difficult to govern because its population is equal to Pakistan which itself is difficult to govern despite having four provinces. This problem also Behenji tried to solve by dividing UP into 4 states. BTW both BJP and Congress have ruled UP before and created mess.

    BJP has occupied position of main opposition party for decades. If even after congress misrule, they are unable to keep check on misdeeds of government, and fail to win majority means BJP also must share blame. Both are just upper caste mafia hand in glove with each other.

    The lower castes vote for dynasts in larger percentages in most of India(as seen recently in Guj), I guess only UP(even then not absolutely)is the exception.

    the electronic media infatuated by Nehru dynasty is almost exclusively upper/forward caste people.
    .
    most people in India vote for the party that represents their caste interests including BJP voters.

    P.S. for majority of people of India, BJP is also just another caste based party whatever they may claim about being. national party.

    Kudos if this works out without any obstacles...

    NaMo is doing what Chatrapati Shahu Maharaj of Kolhapur did with the help of Arya Samaj...Many dalits were given proper vedic training and they became priests..
