Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad’s Mumbai rally cancelled

Chandrashekhar Azad visited Maharashtra for the first time and had planned to carry out a public meeting in Mumbai but he was later put under house arrest


After Mumbai Police put Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad under house arrest, all the events which were to be carried out by Azad have been cancelled along with his rally in Worli on Saturday.   

Earlier, Mumbai Police had denied permission to the Bhim Army supremo for carrying out the rally. Azad alleged that the Fadnavis-led government has “deliberately” denied permission but he will hold the rally despite police refusal.              

After Azad arrived in Mumbai on Friday, he was put under house arrest at Manali Hotel in Malad (E). Moreover, several activists from Bhim Army have been taken into custody at Dindoshi and Vanrai police station.    

While talking to the media, Chandrashekhar Azad asserted that the police is violating his fundamental rights at the behest of Maharashtra government. 

Everyone is allowed to express his or her opinion according to the constitution. It is the duty of the government to maintain law and order. However, the police are violating our constitutional rights and people will respond to it,”  Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad said.
