Delhi to host national social justice conference

CHENNAI: The All India Federation for Social Justice will hold its second national conference in Delhi on Tuesday evening to bring back discussions on social justice in all sectors, ranging from private enterprises to social diversity and in judicial appointments, to the national centre stage.

An apolitical initiative, the meet has lined up most of the non-BJP political leaders across the spectrum as speakers.

Led by Tamil Nadu chief minister M K Stalin, the meet has Jharkhand chief minister Hemant Soren, Bihar deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav, former Karnataka chief minister Veerappa Moily, Sitaram Yechuri and D Raja of the CPI, besides representatives from Aam Aadmi Party, Nationlist Congress Party, Shiv Sena the YSR Congress.

The meet has Stalin’s declaration — Everything for Everyone — as theme.

“The objective of the formation of the All India Federation for Social Justice itself is to achieve a social justice that is full and meaningful, and to demonstrate to the whole nation that it is achievable if the footsteps of Tamil Nadu is followed elsewhere,” said AIADMK’s Rajya Sabha member P Wilson, who is convenor of the forum.

It’s is being held in hybrid mode — while the in-person proceedings happen at the Maharashtra Sadan In New Dehi, outstation participants can join online.
