also a great narrative and not merely a monolithic kind of democratic participation."

Bahujan Samaj is not a spontaneous political outcome but an evolvement of feelings of brotherhood among those who remained socially deprived by the Brahmanism. The British rule is condemned for its policy of divide and rule but what about the Brahmanical rule? It divided the society in six thousand parts in order to introduce and perpetuate its rule. To eradicate it, Phule, Periyar and Ambedkar insisted on unity among the marginalized communities. If it remains unaccomplished, the majority will remain dependent in Independent India. Both, Congress and Bhartiya Janta Party, the children of Gandhi and Ram respectively, will retain the hierarchical structure for the Brahminical hegemony. Republican Party in Maharastra is now a surrogate of the Congress, and ideologies of Phule and Ambedkar have been buried or merged with Gandhianism. To counter it, we need bullet and ballots, the requirement of the former being a compulsion to outweigh the role of criminals. Our ultimate objective is to capture political power.
