In his address, Jaggi said that the prime need for the Moolniwasis was to get united and educated. Chairing the inaugural session, Baljinder Kaur, chairperson, Punjab Moolniwasi Sangh, expressed hope that the “people who will become aware here will make other people aware and strengthen Phule-Ambedkarite movement. That is their duty also.” The convention dwelt on many issues associated with the Moolniwasi community. Among the topics discussed was the similarity between the policies of the UPA and the NDA, assault on democracy, and engineering of enmity between different castes.
