The Bahujan Sangharsh Samiti was formed on July 3, 1983. At. Motiram Powde, adv. Ramanand Dheep, Pvt. MA Deshmukh, Ram Hedau (ex-MP), Appaji Punje (ex-MLA), Laxmanrao Pradhan, Rambhau Adbol, Nagesh Chadhari, Bhai Chaithamal, Hansraj Gajbhiye were the speakers at the rally.
After the conference, the council will spend Rs. 400. There were leftovers. What to do with it? The thought came to our mind. Start a periodical. The name should also be decided from the committee and it became a Bahujan conflict. There was a printing press of Ravindra Thackeray. They paid Rs. The cost of printing like a leaf means 100 rupees. The cost of paper was even lower.
Annual subscription is Rs.10/- The issue was 40 paise. The names of Anil Dhawad, Nalini Somkuvar, Yashwant Saratkar, Jyoti Kotkar, Ravindra Thackeray were present in the editorial board. Delivery, inspection, etc. Vijay Babulkar did important work.
Sent points to all who know. The Circle Commission was mainly in the news of the conflict. Then comes the article. The first issue came out on March 30, 1984. The Board was also providing ideas for the emergence of social equality along with the Commission's struggle. The response was good. The journey to BC began. Then, one year after the Registrar of Newspapers, the name Bahujan sangharsh for equality came into being. The Bahujan conflict continued with the new name. Get new colleagues. The journey continued. Financial stability or gain was not part of it. But the movement and the Enlightenment did not break. The magnitude of the Mandal Commission's movement was not in Vidarbha or so in other parts of Maharashtra. W Marathas, gardeners, agri etc. who are agitating in ideological field in Maharashtra. Were. Except for the name Kunbi. Because of the Kunbi Marathas in Maharashtra, it was not possible to be called a participant in this movement or stream. Therefore, in the socialist or communist stream Maratha SM. Joshi, Laxman Shastri Joshi, Y.D. Phadke Adi was playing a role similar to that of the advancing Brahmins. In Vidarbha, however, in the division of the Mandal, oil, potters, carpenters, blacksmiths, blacksmiths, painters, bhat etc. There was a singularity among the people.
If you look at it like a Bahujan sangharsh, it is a movement that is biweekly. But despite the movement, the work of Bahujan sangharsh and the Bahujan Sangharsh Samiti in the movement for social equality will be called a new phase in the history of Maharashtra. Because, without any political power, and the Bahujan Samaj and Bahujan Sangharsh Samiti, the social and cultural work continued in this way, with no intention of forming a political party or joining a party.
On December 4, 1983, an All India Mandal Commission Conference was organized on behalf of the Mandal Commission Bahujan Sangharsh Samiti in Nagpur and it was, in a true sense, an All India. Because the chief guest who came in was like saying from all four corners of India. Chaudhary Brahma Prakash from Delhi, former Governor of Delhi, and President of National Union of Backward Classes, Hon. K Veeramani, General Secretary, Dravid Kazgam, Hon. Kanshiram, DS Four, Sharad Patil, Gajanan Bhowar, Mumbai etc.
The confluence of stream
At this time, the head of the Dravidian movement, K.K. Veeramani had come to Maharashtra for the first time. Nation It was the confluence of Dravidian and truth-seeking ideas that gave Arya a place where all the Aryan aggression centered at the center of the Sangh. The Dravidian movement has its roots in the philosophical origin of flowers. But the cultural option that stood in the South did not stand in Maharashtra because Satyashodhak and the Dravidian movement did not come together. The Mandal Commission Bahujan Sangharsh Committee had worked to bring both those movements to one stage. It was therefore an extraordinary confluence in terms of ideology and movement.
This convention was a unique event that took place in the soil of Vidarbha. This was the first time that the reconciliation of South-North-Central took place. It was a time when Dravid-Bahujan was one of them. The focus of this conference should be on not only the common Maharashtra but also the country.The conference reached a high point in the wake of the circle which began in 1979. All the speeches were from the inner rhythm, and so the entire Bahujan group was listening to their ears. All these newspapers had to be taken care of. The fallout of this conference was falling elsewhere.
