Rise of BAPSA

It took the collective effort of both black and white folks to abolish slavery in US or apartheid in South Africa so here in India the whole idea of excluding the privileged castes from the unity of oppressed movement sounds a bit absurd as this idea itself appears casteist.
Yes I agree with the idea of BAPSA that we need more leaders coming out from the oppressed sections and that the communist movement in India has been hijacked by the reactionary Brahmanist forces. But how can one have monopoly over Ambedkar and Phule only on the basis of caste?
Because it’s also true that many former dalit leaders are now standing with the Brahmanist fascists of RSS-BJP and one can’t deny the fact that more dalits and indigenous people have died fighting under the red banner than under the blue banner.
Left Ambedkarite Feminism is the need of the hour to combat the rising threat of Communal Fascism in India!
