City Buses in Mangalore Put up ‘Ambedkar Circle’ Stickers on Destination Boards

After “Jyothi Circle” was renamed as “B.R. Ambedkar Circle,” Dalit activists had been demanding action by authorities to make city buses mention the same on destination boards. This long pending demand of Dalit activists was realised recently with private city and suburban buses sporting B.R. Ambedkar Circle instead of Jyothi Circle on their destination boards. This demand was raised in several SC/ST grievances meetings held at the office of Police Commissioner, including the one chaired by Deputy Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Hariram Shankar on February 28.
Dilraj Alva, president of the Dakshina Kannada Bus Owners Association said that they came out with stickers of B.R. Ambedkar Circle and it was pasted on most of the buses passing through the circle on Tuesday.  The association got as many as 400 stickers of B.R. Ambedkar Circle. Association members stopped some city buses on Tuesday morning at the circle and pasted the stickers, in the presence of a few Dalit activists and traffic police. Later, they even went to city bus terminus in State Bank and pasted the stickers on the buses.
