Modi govt poses threat to democracy, Constitution: Mevani

Dalit leader and Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani during Youth Hunkar rally in New Delhi on Tuesday

Previous week, an FIR had been filed against Mevani, in relation to the riots in Maharashtra, even though he maintained his innocent and said that he had done nothing to incite violence between the two conflict ridden communities.

"The way in which Hardik (Patel), Alpesh (Thakore) and Jignesh (Mevani) with the support of the youth in Gujarat brought the BJP down from over 150 seats (target set by BJP in Gujarat) to 99 seats". Mevani stated real issues like corruption, poverty and unemployment are given less importance instead issues involving Ghar Wapasi, love jihad and cows are given space. You have to answer why Rohit Vemula was killed.

Reacting to Minister of State MoS, Anantkumar Hegde's remarks on the Constitution, Mevani said, "We believe in the constitution and will protect it. If an elected representative does not have the right to do so, then this is the Gujarat model", Mevani said at the rally.

Ever since the rally was announced on January 2, "a lot of money has been spent on posters calling Mevani a deshdrohi (traitor) and urban naxal", Pandey told PTI, adding the event will be held as per schedule.

The rally at Parliament Street on Tuesday was organised to demand the release of Dalit leader and the founder of Bhim Army, Chandrashekhar Azad, who was arrested in June previous year under the National Security Act (NSA) over Thakur-Dalit clashes in Saharanpur. We believe in politics of love.

Addressing the rally, Umar Khalid asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to answer the youth on his promises related to development and employment.

A 4-4 deadlock became 5-3 in favor of the new contract as the appointed member voted in favor of the renewal, she said. Hargrave, standing in the dark against a vehicle , replied, saying she was "walking and asking you a question".

Mevani termed the Delhi Police's denial of permission for the rally as "Gujarat model" of politics. "Not asking about Lalu, but what about Sukhram's son or Mukul Roy?" he said.

"Throughout the election campaign we said that for 22 years the BJP followed the politics of division, while we always spoke about binding people together", he said.

"They are afraid of Chandrashekhar, not because he's a threat to the country: but to those who want to convert this to a Hindu Rashtra".

RTI activist Akhil Gogoi said a national programme was needed to get rid of the BJP-RSS government.

Speakers from various states narrated tales of atrocities and vowed to fight what they called BJP-RSS "fascism". "Now farmers, the youth, and Dalits are on streets against hate conspiracy", De said.

Heavy security has still enveloped the rally, with nearly 15 thousand security police, who have been equipped with water cannons and tear gas bombs to be prepared for any violent situation that arise from the rally.
