Mysuru: A one-day workshop on Former Deputy Prime Minister Dr. Babu Jagjivan Ram was organised at Dr. Babu Jagjivan Ram Study, Research and Extension Centre at Manasagangothri of University of Mysore here to mark his 115th birth anniversary on Tuesday April 5.

Speaking after inaugurating the event, the Karnataka State Safai Karmachari Commission Chairman M. Shivanna said, “It is a day to remember Jagjivan Ram’s contribution to our society. We need to work for the welfare of everyone. Some students want to do a PhD regarding safai karamacharis, and it is a welcome step.”

Shivanna said, “We are going on a study tour to Orissa and then submit a detailed report on karamacharis to the State Government. When I was offered the post of Chairman, I was a bit hesitant. Sutturu Seer Shivarathri Deshikendra Swamiji insisted that I should take up the assignment. We need to be responsible in our day-to-day work.”

Presiding over the event, the UoM Vice-Chancellor Dr. G Hemantha Kumar said, “Jagjivan Ram was a champion of the backward classes. He fought against untouchability when he was barely 20.”

The workshop on “Puttavitta Chinna Babu Jagjivan Ram: Jeevana-Vyaktitva Sadhanegala Yashogathe”  was held and the achievements of Dr. Jagijivan Ram over the years was discussed.
