Rahul Gandhi also dined with Veerashaivas – Dalits
In the presence of former AICC president Rahul Gandhi, a dinner was held in Badanavalu village of Nanjangud after 29 years by Veerashaiva and Dalit community people. 28 people from different communities of the village also had dinner in the program held as part of Bharat Jodo.
In 1993, there was an uproar between Veerashaivas and Dalits regarding the opening of the temple. Three Dalits were also killed on the same issue. In the background of this incident, a feud arose between the two communities. The road which was closed earlier in Badanavalu village has been made available for use by two communities through Shramdan.
It is special that this joint dinner event was held on the route of Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra. Speaking on the same issue, KPCC President D. K. In the wake of the massacre in Shivakumar, Badanavalu village, in order to unite the hearts, we have constructed a connecting road between the upperclassmen and the Dalits and donated labor. A dinner was also held with Rahul Gandhi of the two societies. He explained that this attempt has been made for the first time in the country.
