Bengaluru: The State Government has announced Vinaya Samarasya, an awareness programme to ward-off untouchability across Gram Panchayats in the State. The programme is named after a three-year-old Dalit boy, Vinay whose family was levied fine of Rs. 25,000 after entering the temple.

Social Welfare Minister Kota Srinivas Poojary informed this at the Assembly session. Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai will launch Vinaya Samarasya programme on Ambedkar Jayanti. If available, Prime Minister Narendra Modi would launch the programme, he said.

It can be recalled that Vinay’s family on boycott had left their village, agricultural land and house six months ago.
