Dr. JP's tribute to Phule

Caste and gender discrimination can be eradicated only through education, economic self-reliance and urbanization, said Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan here today.

Speaking after garlanding a portrait of Mahatma Jyotiba Phule on his death anniversary at the party headquarters, Dr. JP advised youth to opt for inter-caste marriage if they like the partner.

Taking part in a discussion, Dr. JP said that Jyotiba Phule is an outstanding social reformers who devoted his life to eradicating caste discrimination, liberating women and promoting education.

Dr. JP said that fighting against caste discrimination, which is deeply ingrained in our psyche, is a challenge in the present-day identity politics.

Dr. JP said that real transformation in society cannot be brought about through the barrel of the gun. It is possible only when good behavior is rewarded through incentives.

Lok Satta Working President D. V. V. S. Varma, and activists Srikant, P. V. Rao, Hanumanthu, Hyma Praveen and Lavanya took part in the discussion.
