By Our Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD, MARCH. 13. Leaders of Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Backward Classes shared a common platform here on Saturday to celebrate the 178th birth anniversary of Mahatma Jyotirao Phule, social reformer.

Narayana, D. Swaminathan and R. Krishnaiah and Savithribai Phule award to Hemalatha Lavanam for her yeoman service among several underprivileged sections.
