New Delhi: Inaugurating the Unity March held at Uduppi Popular Front Chairman K M Sharif asked all the patriotic Indians to join Popular Front’s struggle for social justice and equality. The day is being celebrated all over India by Popular Front members to celebrate 8th anniversary of its formation in 2006 on the same day. Sharif said that Popular Front was formed at a time when communalism tried to hijack Indian Democratic system and posed existential threat to country ‘minorities. Even after 50 years of independence we failed to eliminate poverty and social injustice. Country backward classes and minorities were kept way from centres of power. Majority of the citizens are still below poverty line. Demands for justice were oppressed. Muslims, being a community that paid high price for our freedom, they still hold the capacity to lead the country out of situation.
Popular Front thinks the day is relevant because the politicians and parties have long forgotten their allegiance to the country or its people. Our sovereignty has been submitted before colonialists and economy is being controlled by a tiny ultra rich minority. Popular Front Aims to create a society determined to re-establish the basic values freedom, justice and security and to work for the empowerment of marginalised backward classes.
Posters and pamphlets were widely posted and distributed as part of the celebration. The charming “Unity Marches” volunteer parade by popular front volunteers wearing uniforms held at various city centres in three south Indian stated states were the event of the Day. Hundreds of thousands of people gathered in different states.
The organization plans to execute hundreds social empowerment and service programs like village development projects, housing, health, education, family counselling centres, blood donor’s forums and self employment programs in this year. Popular Front has spent nearly nine crores for its educational and economic empowerment programmes in 2013. The organization have largely focused on socio-economic development and have successfully implemented various projects like school kit distribution, single teacher schools, interest -free micro loans, Sarva Shiksha Grams in different states.
