NEW DELHI: The ICCSR has launched a major project for research on the backward classes movement. Under the two-year project, the OBC movement and its impact on politics, literature and on the process of social development in India would be studied. The project director and a professor in Osmania University, S. Simhadri said, “Under this ICCSR-funded project, research would be conducted on the OBC movement and politics in 12 states and on anti-caste OBC thinkers like Buddha, Phule, Periyar, Narayan Guru and VP Mandal.” As part of this project, a national seminar on OBC politics in New Delhi has been proposed for February next year.
