FIR against Jignesh Mevani, Umar Khalid for 'provocative' speeches in Pune

FIR against Jignesh Mevani, Umar Khalid for 'provocative' speeches in Pune

Organizers of the All India Student's Summit 2018, where JNU student leader Umar Khalid and Vadgam MLA Jignesh Mevani were supposed to speak, have been told that they can not go ahead with the event in Mumbai. Jignesh also pointed out the chief policy of Dr. B.R Ambedkar had been the annihilation of caste system in India, and not its use in politics for the profit of some people at the cost of life of many others.

"Members of Sangh Parivar and BJP made a childish attempt to tarnish my image and target me, it is an after effect of the Gujarat results". They want the rule of violence. Later, the incident of Bhima Koregaon took place and thereafter Maharashtra bandh was called. "This question is now of paramount importance, that the Prime Minister, who calls himself an Amberkarite, an Ambedkar bhakt, why is he silent?" asked Mevani. We have the full video footage of the Elgaar Parishad.

Chaos reigned at Bhaidas Hall at Vile Parle on Thursday morning as students who had gathered from across Maharashtra for Chhatra Bharati event scheduled to be addressed by Dalit leader Jignesh Mewani and JNU student leader Umar Khalid outside Bhaidas Hall in Mumbai on Thursday morning, were forcibly removed by police. Jignesh Mevani and Khalid Umar had attended that event. "Not even a single word of my speech was inflammatory".

He said the BJP is "threatened by my growing popularity", and accused the party of "attacking me because they arrogantly thought they would win 150 seats in Gujarat and stopped at 99.and now are anxious about the 2019 national election".

Reliance Jio user base surges as rivals face tough time
It has now taken the place of the more expensive Rs. 448 pack that offers a validity of 82 days, instead of the older 70 days. Further, Jio also offers unlimited voice calls on all networks in India, 100 SMSs daily, and free subscription to Jio apps.

"When the Maharashtra government should look towards making amends, they have targeted me".

In Mumbai, police denied permission to the All India Students Summit organised by Chhatra Bharti, an independent organisation, which had invited Mevani and Khalid as speakers on Thursday. The Dalit leader said it was right that people fighting the battle needed to be in assemblies and Parliament, but if one had to eradicate casteism, it would happen only by taking to the streets.

"So when an elected representative is not allowed to participate in a people's movement it speaks volumes about Modi's conduct. Moreiver, I am a lawmaker now", Mevani said.
