Dr. Nagaraju RK
There are about 250 million Dalits in India. There is inadequate improvement in the economic condition and lake of political awareness of Dalits in the past 70 years. Which is not enough when compared to non-Dalit ? Dalit population has enlarged to 25 per cent of India’s total population. Reservation in the local governance helped the Dalits to take active part in the local governance particularly in gram Panchayats, but attempts have not made by any individuals/organizations to understand the level of participation and contributions made by the Dalit members in local governance, hence the present study the involvement of Dalits in local governance, to identify with the level of participation, and contribution made by the Dalit members as members of local governance and to suggest suitable measure to strengthen the political participation among Dalit members in local governance.
