Mr. D. K, Khaparde, National President of BAMCEF presided over the function. Concluding the discussions, and debate on the topic, he said, I am connected with the activities of our people in Delhi for last 25 years or so. I have found a large scale change has come in the ways of thinking of our people all over the country. But our educated people in Delhi have no change. You may keep any function for any purpose, but they have nothing to say, except expressing their demands However, we must know that beggars can not be choosers. They can not say that they want some particular thing. They can only beg. BAMCEF is trying to bring awakening in the society since last 25 years, on all these aspects and today the broad impact of this awakening is very much visible. BAMCEF does note keep on, only weeping. Instead it thinks ahead of that. The purpose behind keeping discussions on judiciary is not about demanding reservation in judiciary. It is, a very small aim. Babasaheb Ambedkar has alway told his people to keep great aim, if you want produce great result. And to decide your aim in proper perspective, you have to first identify your problem. Today's topic is concerned with our attempts to understand this issue of judiciary and how the brahminical forces are trying to counter the emergence of the oppressed castes by using judiciary.
Speaking further on the topic, he said that there are four pillars of democracy and out of them, the three pillars are connected with governance, administration and rule of the country. Legislature, executive and judiciary, are these three pillars, which together make the government. The fourth pillar is Press Media It is a, creation of private sector. Though the oppressed people keep on talking about press media, in my opinion, we are yet to become capable to make a dent in this sector in big way. But the first three pillars of democracy are erected on the strength of the people. However, the ruling castes have reached to the conclusion that they are loosing their control over legislature and executive, the two wings of govt. The legislature and the executive have started crumbling before the wave of awakening that has risen among the oppressed castes. It means, legislature and executive, through which brahminical forces were ruling the country upto now, has gone out of their control now. Hence, the brahminical forces are using
judiciary now to maintain their rule in the country, are trying to govern the country through judiciary. This is their well planned strategy. Hence, I would like to say that today there is no governance of the country by legislature and executive, but the judiciary is governing the country. Some people have started talking that judiciary has become' politicalised. We will have to think their statement in this perspective. All the decisions or judgements that are being given by the judiciary, are not based on constitutional provisions or interpretation of law. They are political decisions or judgements. Because, the judiciary is only trying to run the administration of the country on behalf of the brahminical forces. That is why, we would like to say that by appointment of few individuals from SC, ST and OBCs, as judges in high courts and Supreme Court, this issue can not be resolved.
In 1996, BAMCEF conducted a debate on the judicial activism of the Indian judiciary and gave a message to the people that it is not a judicial activism, but a judicial conspiracy. At that time, we just wanted to alert the judiciary to understand the significance of changes that are coming in the thinking of the oppressed and ruled castes of the country and the changes it is bringing in the socio-political situation of the country. We expected the judiciary to change its out look and behaviour in accordance with these changes. However we are sorry to state, that the judiciary has failed to take note of it and reform itself. Hence, we have to take up this issue again today, but now we have decided to take it up on big scale and conduct a national campaign. The President of India Mr. K. R. Narayanan is a very matured "personality. He has raised the very basic and important issues in context of judiciary. What the president has said, is that judiciary does not have representation of all sections of the society and it is necessary to give this representation. This will be in conformity with the constitutional principles and objectives and nation's committment. It means that the judiciary must be made representative, to fullfill the principles and objectives of constitution and nation's committment. In a way, we can also say that the judiciary is acting against the constitutional principles and objectives and nation's committment. Now what is nation's committments. The constitution has given a directive to build a new society based on liberty, equality and fraternity.This is the nation's committment, The constitution has also givent the directive to interprete the law in such a manner, which will benifit the weaker and oppressed sections of the society. The judiciary is not willing to recognise both these principles for giving its judgements. Then, what the judiciary is recognising? The judiciary is recognising the fact of mainaining the rule and governance of one particular caste in the country. Not only that the judiciary is working for maintaining the monopoly of that particular caste in the country. And this monopoly can not be maintained through legislature and executive, then it will be maintained through judiciary. This is what the judiciary is saying today. We will have to understand this properly. Today, we have an issue before us, whether to allow the monopoly of one particular caste in democratic system, in the name of merit? And what merit they are talking about? We are seeing their merit since last 50 years, which have made the conditions in the country from bad to worst. Whatever problems the country is facing today are all creations of the governance of the country since last 50 years and this governance is being done by these brahminical forces, who think they are meritorious. Hence, we will have to understand this concept of merit in proper perspective and how it is being used in favour of bfahminical forces. Today, judiciary is talking about this merit only. Hence, we will have to understand that brahminical forces any trying to retain their monopoly, domination and rule through judiciary. And if this conspiracy is beig hatched through judiciary, then we must understand that making one or two individuals of SC/ ST as judges, we can not resolve this issue. Understanding this basic aspect of the issue, we will have to find out a solution. BAMCEF has never made any demand. It has never passed any resolution, demanding any thing. Because, we think that we are beggars and beggars can not become choosers. Hence, we will have to first discard this habit of begging.
We are of the opinion, that our country needs a committed judiciary. A judiciary which will be committed to constitutional principles, objective and nation's committment and will function according to it. The President of India has given emphasis on it. We do not want a judiciary committed to any perticular caste group. But how can we create such a judiciary? This can not be done unless some basic changes are made in the judicial system and in the system of selection of judges. Today, whatever changes have come in the country, are the results of the awakening that is being brought in the society by BAMCEF since last 50 years. But we are sorry to note that our intellectual class is not able to understand the significance of this awakening. It seems, the judiciary is now working to counter this growing awakening among the oppressed castes. If we want to stop this, we will have to work for creating committed judiciary.
At the end, Mr. Khaparde has said that today we observe that all our struggles and organisations end with reservation. The ruling castes are trying to keep the movement of Ambedkar limited to reservation only and for this purpose are creating new leaders always, and our enducated people keep on running after them.The movement of Ambedker was not limited to the issue of reservation alone. It was having far reaching goals of making the oppressed castes, as ruling communities. During Ambedkar's period, there was no intellectual class in the oppressed communities. That was a problem faced by him. Hence, he made specific efforts to create the intellectual class. But today this class has become a big problem for the movement because this class is not playing any conscious active role in the movement. Ruling castes of the country are trying to revolve our movement around issue of. Reservation. Mr. Suraj Bhan, a BJP man, who is governor of U.P. was addressing a rally in Luc know, When he told our people to fight for reservation, then some people asked him that his party is ruling the country today. So he should go to his party and tell them to implement the policy of reservation, instead of telling the people to fight for reservation. Now this realisation has started growing among the educated people today. They want to fight for bigger causes, for the movement and hence want to come out of the clutches of socalled leaders of reservation. Today, many of our issues can not be resolved without bringing changes in the judical system and creating committed judiciary. And this can not be done without the support of masses. Hence, we will have to work for bringing awakening among the oppressed castes, about this judiciary and the role it is playing to counter their aspirations and movement, so that, we can create a public pressure before which the judiciary will feel crumbled.
