Ambedkar at MadrasFrom Dr Ambedkar and Untouchability: Analysing and Fighting Caste  By Christophe Jaffrelot page 82

Periyar’s attack on Brahminism – Hinduism, god, priestly class, unscientific and inhuman customs and practices in the name of religion was unchallengeable in the modern history of the country. Self  Respect Movement provided a solid non-political foundation for successfully carrying out the political activities of the Justice Party under Periyar’s leadership. Though from 1921 to 1937, the party achieved the desired success, it was humbled at the 1937 elections as it lost the power to the Congress. Outlining the reasons for the debacle of the Justice Party, Dr.Ambedkar, in a speech in Madras on September 23, 1944 said, “there were mainly two reasons for this unprecedented and unexpected drubbing. In the first place, the Justice Party followers failed to understand clearly the doctrinal differences between their party and the opposition party; and secondly, it became the party of job hunters and forgot that 90 percent of non-Brahmins lived in the villages.”
