Rahul Calls Kashi Ram Great Social Reformer; Lalu Demands Bharat Ratna for Dalit Leader

Date:

Bahujan Samaj Party founder Kanshi Ram was born on March 15, 1934 at Khawaspur village in Ropar district of Punjab.

NEW DELHI (IANS) — Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday paid rich tributes to Dalit leader Kanshi Ram on his birth anniversary, terming him a great social reformer and one who left an indelible mark on Indian politics.

“Honourable Kanshi Ram was a great social reformer. His tireless efforts to connect the suppressed communities with politics and change left an indelible impression on Indian politics. I bow to him on his birth anniversary,” Gandhi said in a tweet.

Bahujan Samaj Party founder Kanshi Ram was born on March 15, 1934 at Khawaspur village in Ropar district of Punjab.

Describing Dalit leader Kanshi Ram as a great revolutionary on his birth anniversary, RJD chief Lalu Prasad on Thursday demanded the Bharat Ratna, the country’s top civilian award, for the late Bahujan Samaj Party founder.

“Manyavar Kannshi Ram ji ko avilamb Bharat Ratna diya jaye,” said Lalu Prasad on Twitter, which is managed by persons close to him.

Lalu Prasad is lodged in a jail in Ranchi after conviction in fodder scam cases.

Lalu described Kanshi Ram as ‘Mahan Krantikari” (great revolutionary) and said that the unexpected alliance of the ‘Bahujan’ (BSP and Samajwadi Party) in bypolls to the two Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh that helped defeat “Manuvadi” and “divisive forces” is a real tribute to the Dalit leader on his birth anniversary.
