Day 2 - Land Rights Campaign
On the 122nd Birth Anniversary of Babasaheb Ambedkar, a national campaign on Dalit Land rights was launched across 300 districts in 20 states of India. Seen here are the photographs from a peaceful gathering at Jantar Mantar New Delhi. The campaign will go on till the 6th of December 2013, where 2.5 MILLION DALIT WOMEN will be filing land claims in all these districts. It is one of the largest such activity in recent times and is a huge step forward in ensuring right to Agricultural and Homestead land to dalits and tribals in the country. As per a National Sample Survey data, there are 79% SCs and 52.9% STs who are landless or near landless, across India.
