DELEGATE SESSION NO: 1
Date: 27th Dec.2008 (Saturday) | Time: 3:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Subject: Self Introspection by the cadres with regards to work done by them and ways and means to achive long term ob- jective of the organization.
BAMCEF had committed itself to the objective of Social Change and had trained its cadres to achieve the same. Keeping this objective in mind, cadres of BAMCEF are active in the society for past three decades and have been continuously educating and awakening the masses. These efforts have resulted in reviving the Phule-Ambedkarite movement to the extent that it has been acknowledged by all the prevailing forces in the country. Certainly this stage could be achieved due to tireless efforts and commitment of cadres for building the movement. However, since the ultimate objective is yet to be achieved, the process of further strengthening the movement has to continue and cadres will be required to put in more and more efforts in determined manner. BAMCEF will be entering the fourth decade in 2009 and on the occasion of Silver Jubilee National Convention, we need to take a review of the work done by us in the past and plan for future. We need to do the introspection to asses and quantify the work done in the past. We need to reflect, whether we had been working in right manner, whether our work was matching with the requirement of our objective and to what extent our caravan has moved in the right direction to achieve the objective. Self-introspection in this regard will not only help us to understand the working of the Phule – Ambedkarite mission in the past but also will help us to learn the lessons from the past and plan for future so that we achieve our ultimate objective of bringing Social Change at the earliest.

Subject: Identification of Mulnivasi Culture and Challenges for its revitalization in the society.
Several Researches in History, Geography,Archaeology,Anthropology have highlighted the fact that the Mulnivasis of this country had nurtured highly developed glorious civilization on the banks of Indus River during ancient times. But after the invasion of Aryans, the Brahmins destroyed the egalitarian culture of Mulnivasis and imposed on them the inequal, inhuman brahmanical culture and brahmanized the Mulnivasi people of this land. In spite of this the roots of Mulnivasi culture could not be totally eliminated and the glimpses of which , in symbolic form, could still be clearly seen even today in Mulnivasi traditions, festivals, life styles, food habits, costumes etc.. But because of the influence and mixing of brahmanical culture it is difficult to distinguish and identify the mulnivasi culture. It has therefore become a challenging situation to understand, adopt and practice the glorious cultural values in the society. To explore the cultural values and various dimensions of Mulnivasi culture we are discussing this topic.

Subject: We should have firm belief in the objective and awakening program rather than adopting reactionary methods.
The Post-Ambedkarite era has witnessed rise and fall of many Ambedkarite organizations. Though the initial formations of the organizations were with sincere desire and pious intentions but in due course these organizations simply vanished from the scene or aligned with other forces for petty gains. This gave a major setback to Phule-Ambedkarite movement and the masses became leaderless. Secondly, it is also observed that on several occasions, the Phule-Ambedkarite masses have spontaneously reacted to the unjust act of the ruling class. However, such reactions could not result into building the movement. Enthusiasm of the masses faded with equal speed with which they reacted on the issue. In both cases it can be observed that, neither there was specific and long term objective of Social Change before them, nor there was any desire to build the movement. BAMCEF has a very clear objective of Social Change, which our fore fathers had set for us. BAMCEF has never diluted, compromised or modified the objective. It is for this reason that BAMCEF did not turn out to be a compromising force. BAMCEF is of a firm opinion that unless there is specific and long term objective in front of us, the movement cannot be built. Having the objective, therefore, becomes a pre-requisite for building the movement. Therefore it becomes mandatory for cadres that they should have firm belief in and dedication towards the Objective of Social Change. Superficial sentimental involvement, without clarity and belief in the Objective, will pose a threat to the movement. If we express our firm belief in the objective, then it is our bounden duty that we keep awakening the masses rather than letting the potential drain out by reactionary methods. We had decided to discuss the subject in this perspective.

Subject: The present National Economic policy is detrimental to achieve constitutional goal of economic justice for Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj.
The strength of any nation depends upon presence and practice of values of Liberty, Equality, Fraternity and Justice in its social, political and economic life. Accordingly, these values were incorporated in our Constitution, quite explicitly in Preamble, Fundamental Rights and Directive Principles of State Policy to make Indian Nation economically strong and Governments were expected to formulate and implement the Economic Policies to achieve the Constitutional Objective of Economic Justice. But instead of doing this, governments are making the policies which cause Gross Economic Injustice to Mulnivasi Bahujans (SC/ST/OBC/Religiously Converted Mulnivasi) who are 85 percent of Indian Population. This is resulting in inequality of income and wealth, mass unemployment, illiteracy, poverty, hunger, diseases, starvation deaths and even suicides due to economic distress. This misdeed of rulers is against national interests and therefore needs to be exposed. This is a serious issue for Mulnivasi Intellectuals and therefore this topic is taken for discussion.

Subject: Brahmanical Terrorism is much more dangerous than any other form of terrorism.
The country has witnessed several forms of terrorism during the past 15-20 years. The Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj was invariably the victim of all these terrorist acts irrespective of the group who committed the act. Recently the terrorism has again become an issue in national discourse. Religious colour is been given to these acts of terrorism. The National press is reporting them as Sikh terrorism, Islamic terrorism and Hindu terrorism. The issue is why people take to terrorism? Are they born terrorist? In democracy every section of the society has right to assert for their rights through free expression of their thoughts. However, brahmanical forces in the name of Hindu majority terrorize the atmosphere and gagged the voice of millions of Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj so that they do not assert for their rights. They have destroyed many generations of Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj by imposing mental slavery. It was therefore, decided to expose the brahmanical terrorism and awaken the Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj.

N.R.I. Delegate Session
Date: 29th Dec.2008 (Monday) | Time: 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.
Subject: Duty and moral responsibility of NRI’s to fulfill the expectation of Phule-Ambedkarite movement.
Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar’s emphasis on higher education had motivated the mulnivasi bahujan samaj which created the large number of highly educated people. But at the same time there is a vast section of the society who is still under the grip of social inequalities and are deprived of their basic rights. It is therefore a duty of educated lot to strive for the emancipation of the deprived section by strengthening the Phule-Ambedkarite movement. BAMCEF over past three decade had made efforts to rope in this educated class into the movement and use the available resouces to build the movement. Also the sizeable number of this educated people had setteled abroad who still has concern for their brethren here in India. This concern is a great asset for the movement. The intellectual and economic resources and the social feelings in them, if consolidates and put to use can uproot the social disabilities of Indian community. It is therefore, necessary to consolidate all these resources and make Phule-Ambedkarite movement more effective. It is in this regard the duties and moral responsibilities of NRI’s needs to be discussed and evaluated towards their brethren.

Date: 29th Dec. 2008 (Monday) | Time: 2:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Subject: De-brahmanization of Tribals and their socio-economic emancipation.
Tribals are most neglected and exploited section of Indian society. The main reason is, in the past they had openly opposed and fought against Aryan invasion and subsequent rule. The Arya Brahmin had therefore forced the Adivasis to lead the sub-human life in the forest. Despite they struggled a lot to preserve their original identity and glorious culture. The Mulnivasi identity and culture preserved by the tribals has become a matter of concern for brahmanical forces because of which they are trying to replace the “Adivasi” identity by “Vanvasi” identity and Adivasi culture by so called Hindu culture. With the change of this nomenclature, the process of brahmanization of tribals has started. Besides this, attempts are made to identifiy and divide the tribals on religious basis by calling them as “Hindu Adivasi”, Non-Hindu Adivasi”, “Christian Adivasi” etc., so that they keep fighting amongst themselves. Natural resources like forests, land and water have always remained the source of livelihood and part cultural milieu of the tribals. However this has been snatched away by mafia, landlords, money lenders and even the industrialists in the name of development and Adivasis are compelled to move out of their original dwellings. The ruling class is watching the situation as silent spectator. Due to this the socio-economic condition of tribals is getting worst day by day. This socio-economic man made disaster caused by brahmnical forces is creating havoc for Adivasis such as starvation deaths of children, epidemics and mass illiteracy. It is therefore necessary that the Adivasis needs to be de-brahmanized and emancipated from their social and economic exploitation. To analyze this problem and to arrive at some solution we had kept this topic for discussion.

Subject: Sub-Categorization of Constitutional reservation amongst castes – A Conspiracy of rulers to initiate infighting among organizing Mulnivasi Samaj.
It is well known fact that our forefathers have done the revolutionary work of emancipating the Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj from the mental slavery of Brahminism. Because of which the Socially and Educationally Backward Classes (S.E.B.C.) viz., S.C., S.T. and O.B.Cs have been emerged and provided representation in governance and Administration through the constitution. Reservetion was the mechanism introduced by Babasheb uniting the mulnivasis under the nomenclature of S.C.,S.T.,and O.B.C, who were earlier divided into several thousand castes by Brahmanical system. The educated Mulnivasis from among these classes have been leading the movement of liberating the mulnivasis which fundamentally resulted in altering the social, economic and political equations of the country. Today the situation has come to such level that unless the Mulnivasi Bahujan people are divided, the Arya Brahmins will not be able to comfortably rule the country. Therefore, Brahminis who are presently ruling the counting are making the policies to divide the Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj and make them fight among themselves, by destroying the spirit of constitutional representation through reservation. Many state Governments have proposed sub-categorisation of reservation in their states and recently the central Government also has preparred the Bill which will be tabled soon in the parliament. Hence, this topic has been kept to alert the Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj about the conspiracy of the ruling classes and the damage it may cause to the liberation movement of the Mulnivasis.

Off-shoot wings Session
Date: 30th Dec. 2008 (Tuesday) | Time 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Subject: Responsibility and action program of Off-Shoot wings of BAMCEF for social change.
In a democracy, rights can be won by mass movement through democratic struggle and the mass movement can be built by organizing different sections of the society by penetration of ideology. Not that Phule-Ambedkarite ideology is not known to Mulnivasi Bahujan Samaj, but still we are far away from the critical mass that is required to launch a democratic struggle to snatch the lost rights. The reason is that on one hand we are not yet organized for bringing social change and on the other hand if at all we organize, it is fragmented organization under the political leadership who have always used the masses to meet their selfish ends as per contingencies of the situation. Therefore unless we organize the different sections of the society under the leadership of social organisation we cannot build strong movement to achieve our rights. We have therefore decided to launch different offshoot wings for different sections of the society such as students, youths, ladies, teachers, pensioners etc., ensure penetration of Phule Ambedakrite ideology in them and thus through them organize the society at the grass root to build the mass movement. In this background, the responsibility and action program of offshoot wings will be discussed.
