Responding on the live telecast of RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat’s speech on the government owned Doordarshan television; several Dalit organizations, in Bangalore, took people to the streets and protested against the policy-shift of the public media.
The Doordarshan had telecast live the Vijaya Dasami speech of RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat from Nagpur.
The protesting organizations also submitted a memorandum to the Director General of DD. They alleged that the RSS is being allowed to use the public service to propagate Hindutva ideology.
They also asked that why the gathering of Dalits at Deeksha Bhoomi at Nagpur was never telecasted.
Dalit Sangharsha Samiti (DSS), Samata Sainik Dal, Dalita Samraksha Samitiand, and Samajika Parivartana Janandolana participated in the protest.
