Siddaramaiahbats for inter-caste marriage, recalls his foiled attempt

Date:

Agencies

Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah, a true socialist known for his progressive outlook, recently recollected some old memories regarding how caste sentiments and traditions foiled his attempt to marry a girl from another caste. Speaking at a function organised by Janaspandana Trust and Manava Mantapa in Mysuru to launch a website for registration of inter-caste couples, Siddaramaiah said: “I wanted to have an inter-caste marriage, but it did not happen. The girl did not accept it.” However, Siddaramaiah batted for inter-caste marriages and said more inter-caste marriages should be encouraged so that caste inequalities are removed from the society. He cited B.R. Ambedkar to say that political independence in the country will not be successful as long as economic independence and social equality is not achieved.
