The Constitution is towards its end, so reorganization is necessary. DOM is not an organization but a platform: Dr. Udit Raj

The National Convention organized at the Constitution Club

Approximately 400 members from organizations participated in this

New Delhi, March 7, 2024:

A reorganization of the Dalit, OBC, and Minority Federation (DOM Federation) was conducted at the Constitution Club in Delhi on Sunday, and a National Convention was organized for future challenges.

On the occasion, former MP and National President of the DOM Federation, Dr. Udit Raj, said, ‘The All India Federation of Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribe Organizations was formed in 1997 to overturn the anti-reservation orders and successfully struggled to amend the Constitution in the 81st, 82nd, and 85th Amendments, ensuring the reservation remained intact. The Bahujan Lokpal Bill was introduced, providing 50% reservation to SC, ST, OBC, and women. We also fought for reservation in the private sector.’

Dr. Udit Raj further said, ‘The Constitution is nearing its end, and now the fight cannot be waged solely by SC/STs. Therefore, reorganization is necessary, and the decision has been made to include OBCs and minorities. Henceforth, it will be known as the Dalit, OBC, and Minorities Federation (DOM Federation).’

He said, ‘If awareness is born from the awakening of the Bahujans, then the dispersion becomes even more widespread. When there was no awakening, reservations were implemented, land distribution, jobs, quotas, and permits were obtained. Those who awakened formed their own organizations. The intention was to think educated, organized, and struggle, but they remained limited to proving themselves better than each other and even criticized each other. They chose the cheaper and self-destructive path to gain MLA, MP, or accolades, and indirectly and directly supported the sub-caste, then where do the workers and leaders of the other caste lag behind? They themselves remained trapped in the net of sub-caste and told the upper castes to improve. What kind of irony is this?’

He further said that when the backward classes got reservation, the dominant caste people accompanied them. The Mandal movement created opposition to the caste system and reached power. The OBC category stood up against the Dalits in the queue to become privileged castes, but now the circumstances have changed. Jobs and education opened up through Mandal, which became the foundation of awareness, and now they are ready to join hands. Perhaps the Muslim community rarely fought for jobs, education, and rights. Those whom they considered friends kept them engaged in fighting against Dalits and backward classes. Due to the lack of awareness among Dalits and backward classes, they continued to stand against Muslims and Christians. Now, this strategy is starting to become clear.

Dr. Udit emphasized, “Now it is necessary for everyone to come together to save democracy. Only then can we tackle current challenges such as removing EVMs, protecting the Constitution and democracy, stopping privatization, ensuring representation in government jobs according to population, caste census, reinstating old pensions, recruitment for backlog positions, reservation in private institutions and the higher judiciary, and so on.”

The importance of DOM

Dr. Udit, while discussing the importance of this association during the conference, said, “In reality, this is not an organization but a platform. If it becomes an organization in itself, how will others be connected? DOM Association will facilitate coordination among everyone. There will be no big or small players, nor will there be any crisis of respect for anyone. There will be struggles on issues.”

Suggestions made

Suggestions were sought on the occasion of the reorganization of the DOM Association in the Constitution Club, New Delhi. Requesting suggestions, the national president of DOM said that your suggestion could prove revolutionary for organization, policy, and the fight for issues, initiating a new revolution in the country by incorporating them. Today, leaders from various organizations across the country were also identified to form an executive at the national level.

In today’s conference, besides Delhi, leaders from various organizations from states such as Bihar, Gujarat, Haryana, Jammu and Kashmir, Chandigarh, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Odisha, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, West Bengal, and others participated. Soon, its expansion will be carried out throughout the country.
