In a rally against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government organised by United Youth Front, the youth leaders campaigned against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and to ‘Save the Constitution’ in Mumbai. The rally was backed by the opposition parties including Congress, Nationalist Congress Party, Communist Party of India (CPI). 

The rally began at Hindu colony in Dadar and concluded at Chaityabhoomi, where almost 500 people participated including youth leaders Kanhaiya Kumar, Jignesh Mevani, and Hardik Patel.

While addressing the protestors, Former Jawaharlal Nehru University Student Union (JNUSU) President and CPI leader Kanhaiya Kumar said that the significance of the rally is important as PM Modi has been acting against government institutions such as Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Reserve Bank of India (RBI). 

Speaking on the Ram Mandir issue, Kumar said that an environment is being created to divide Hindus and Muslims and it puts the constitution in danger. Ram Mandir has been made into an issue to hide the failures of this government, said Kumar.

Patidar leader Hardik Patel also attacked Modi government and informed that the central government is putting pressure on institutions like Supreme Court, RBI, CBI while compromising the values of Indian constitution. 

Ram Mandir is not an issue but drought-ridden farmers in Maharashtra and their sufferings are the real problems. This issue is being raised ahead of the elections in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh,” said Patel. 

Dalit leader and Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani urged the youth to unite and struggle to ‘Save the Constitution’ of this country. Mevani further added that this government favours the teachings of Manuscripts while putting our constitution in danger. 

There should be discussions on Rafale deal issue, unemployment, malnutrition problems in Jharkhand and not on Ram Mandir,” said the Dalit leader.
