Panchayat Raj becomes Caste Raj: She is stabbed, Caste Virus 002TN2011

23Jun11

Recently a Dalit women panchayat president(Mrs. Krishnaveni) in Tamil Nadu was stabbed by a member of 4 people (Caste Hindus). She sustained serious injuries (15 stabs, Her right hear was cut, both the ankel and the knee was hit by the knife. She has to undergo 3 operations) and admitted in the Hospital. She belongs to the ‘Arunthathiyar Caste’ (scavenger/bhangi community). In Tamil Nadu it has been a history of Panchayat President being physically manhandled, harassed, or killed. Till now 5 Dalit Panchayat Presidents have been killed and could not be noticed.

Therefore there must be a serious global agitation against the caste virulent zones and caste goons in the area.  In relation to Mrs. Krishnavenis case the media did not publish, most of the published newspaper article are within the district page. We at Atrocitynews, request you to do anything/everything to stop the caste based discrimination atleast in Panchayats, turning out to be Hell for lower castes; which is always celebrated by all Gandhians as a Back bone of the peaceful governance and development. No Gandhi will bear the caste pain in this world, that is sure as Caste is building block of Hindu society.

The mainstream media is busy in narrating the Atrocity news from UP only, where the Chief Minister is Mayawathi (a dalit women). But hardly makes any serious attempt to highlight at national level the caste atrocities in Tamil Nadu.

Among few;

The Hindu has published a news the abstracts are below; “….The report(fact finding), which was released here on Tuesday, says that Ms. Krishnaveni had been facing discrimination right from the day of her announcement to contest elections. She was not allowed to sit in the chair that was allotted for the elected president. Since May, 2007, she had filed 12 complaints with the police and district administration about the discrimination and on her right to function independently but no action was taken.The fact-finding team has found that Ms. Krishnaveni had to seek the help of District Collector to execute her duties as the vice-president had been thwarting all attempts made by her to work independently…” “…Irrespective of caste affiliation, she had functioned in an unbiased way, stated the villagers. She had taken many decisions in a bold manner which had invited the wrath of a few sections of the dominant castes in the area. The team also came to know that Dalit presidents belonging to 125 panchayats in the district were subject to one form of discrimination or the other…” “…The team also came to know that Dalit presidents belonging to 125 panchayats in the district were subject to one form of discrimination or the other…”
