A Rally headed by Dalit Shree Shakti Convener Jhansi Geddam with 100 Dalit woman leaders on a mission to bring awareness on the Government's SC ST Subplan started Rath Yatra on Monday starting from the Ambedkar Statue at LIC Building.
The Yatra will be done for 10 days covering 2400 villages in 47 mandals in the Districts of Visakhapatnam, East Godavari, West Godavari, Krishna, Guntur, Rangareddy and Hyderabad. The main aim of the Yatra is to bring total awareness on the act and to help Dalit women to improve the quality of their life.
Former Mayor D.V.Subba Rao who flagged off the mission said that mere passing an Act will not serve that purpose if it is not in the awareness of the beneficiaries. The mission took off after the statue of B.R.Ambedkar was garlanded.
