Comrade Pawan Gupta, Divisional Secretary NZIEA said that Dr. Ambedkar fought a big struggle against untouchability and caste discrimination; but he was not only a Dalit icon as he had definite views on minorities ,women, working class and other deprived sections of the Indian society.
It was pledged to pay real tribute to Dr. Ambedkar by strengthening the struggle against the forces of neo liberalism, globalization, communalism, and by integrating the class struggle with the struggle against caste exploitation by building the broadest possible unity of Dalits and all toiling masses in a struggle for economic emancipation as well as social emancipation.
