VINAYA SAMARASYA YOJANA :KARNATAKA’S ANTI-UNTOUCHABILITY SCHEME IS NAMED AFTER A DALIT BOY AND HIS FAMILY, WHO WERE FORCED TO RELOCATE

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • The Karnataka government has introduced the Vinaya Samarasya Yojana
  • It is named after 3 year old dalit boy named Vinay
  • This initiative has the goal of eliminating untouchability throughout the state

The Karnataka government has introduced the Vinaya Samarasya Yojana, an awareness programme. This initiative was launched with the goal of eliminating untouchability in Gram Panchayats throughout the state.

Reason behind naming the initiative Vinaya Samarasya Yojana

The scheme is named after Dalit Vinay, a three-year-old kid from Miyapur village in Koppal district, whose family was fined Rs 25,000 by village elders in September last year for the boy’s “offence” of trespassing inside a local temple.

Overview:

  • This scheme was named after a three-year-old Dalit boy named Vinay.
  • Vinay’s family lived at Miyapur village in Koppal District. The village leaders penalised them Rs 25,000 in September 2021 for the “offence” committed by the youngster wandering inside a local temple.
  • The village leaders enforced a social boycott on the victim’s Dalit family in addition to the fine.
  • As a result, in November, the family was compelled to evacuate the area, abandoning their agricultural land and home.
  • Following the discovery of the occurrence, the Koppal district’s social welfare department filed a report with the local police, who intervened and arrested numerous suspects, who were quickly released on bond. Following this, the townspeople were even more enraged with the family of three, forcing them to flee their property and house.

When will the programme be launched?

Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai will launch the Vinaya Samarasya Yojana on the occasion of Ambedkar Jayanti on April 14th.

The conviction rate in cases of atrocities against STs and SCs in Karnataka

In Karnataka, just 7% of cases of atrocities committed against Scheduled Tribes (STs) and Scheduled Castes (SCs) result in convictions. Out of the 23,095 similar cases that have been filed in Karnataka since the beginning of the year, 19,057 are still pending.
