Vilas Sonawane: Tribute to a ‘Satyashodhak’ Marxist

Personality and life of Vilas Sonawane By Vidya Bhushan Rawat The passing away of Comrade Vilas Sonawane is a huge loss to Dalit- OBC-Pasmanda movement all over the country. He was one of the very few who were extremely articulate and well-read on the issue. Apart from that, his own experience of working with the Communist Party of India (Marxist) gave him enough understanding of what ails our socio-political movements, as well as his relations with Phulewadi-Ambedkarite organisations.

Vilas emerged from a student movement as he was the founding secretary of the Student Federation of India (SFI), Maharashtra.  He was the first Communist Student Secretary of Siddharth College Mumbai Students Union from 1973-75. He was expelled from the Communist Party of India (Marxist)  in 1978 and got associated with Comrade Sharad Patil who established Satyashodhak Communist Party in the same year. Actually, Vilas always spoke about the caste bias in the party and that compelled him to work for the rights of the OBCs in Maharastra in particular where political leaderships of different parties were not giving space to them. He never compromised his Marxism Vilas never compromised his Marxism. Despite having big differences with…
