Rajkot, Oct 5 (UNI) The Braham Ekta Manch has organised a state-level convention here on Sunday with a view to unite Brahmins in the state.
The convention, being held ahead of the assembly elections, will be attended by over 20,000 participants, Braham Ekta Manch Inranil Rajguru claimed while speaking to UNI.
Brahmins are facing injustice in the society because they are not united, Mr Rajguru said.
''Brahmins are not united and, so, face problems,'' another convenor Jitu Mehta said.
In reply to a question, Mr Mehta denied that there were any political intentions behind holding the convention. He admitted that politicians like Minister Ashok Bhatt, City BJP president Nitin Bhardwaj, BSP secretary Nalin Bhatt, former finance minister Sanat Mehta, former chief minister Suresh Mehta and former Narmada Development Authority chairman Jai Narain Vyas had been invited -- but only because they are brahmins.
Mr Mehta said issues like infrastructural development in the educational sector for the benefit of brahmin students, and strengthening of their economy will be highlighted at the convention.
Damraji Kapuraji Rajgor, president of Banaskantha, Bhaskarbhai Upadhyay, president of the Samast Brahmsamaj of Saurashtra-Kutch, Jagdish Dave, president of World Brahmin Federation, Mahesh Mehta, president of All Gujarat Braham Samaj and Gau Bhakt Chaitanya Prabhu Maharaj will address the convention, Mr Mehta said.
