The fundamental right under which abolition of untouchability falls is _____________.


ANSWER

Right to equality


SOLUTION
Article 15 of the constitution states that no person shall be discriminated on the basis of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth. Every person shall have equal access to public places like public parks, museums, wells, bathing ghats, etc. However, the State may make any special provision for women and children. Special provisions may be made for the advancements of any socially or educationally backward class or scheduled castes or scheduled tribes. Article 17 of the constitution abolishes the practice of untouchability. This is the right to equality. Hence, Option A is correct. The rest of the options do not mention equality irrespective of caste, hence, incorrect.
