Sai Sampat told you past
Sampath said that I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the Government of India for the scholarship I received to pursue my PhD in Geneva, Switzerland. Sampath said that I come from the underprivileged section of the society, I have also experienced caste discrimination. But the condition of Dalits in India is much better than the minorities living in other neighboring countries.
What was said on Narendra Modi and Draupadi Murmu
Sampath further said, “Draupadi Murmu, India’s first tribal woman president and Narendra Modi, who comes from the OBC category, are living examples of the power of India’s constitution. Even after coming from backward classes, they sit in the highest positions of the country. That people from any background can break any barrier and reach great heights.”
Somayaji, representing the African Union, spoke on India’s development model. He said that since independence in 1947, India has made a significant contribution to the promotion and protection of human rights. He said that the Constitution of India guarantees fundamental rights to all citizens.
