The opposition parties seem to have got just the right issue to boost their 2022 Uttar Pradesh assembly elections ambitions with the Lakhimpur Kheri violence that involved 8 people losing their lives and the involvement of the Union Minister of State Ajay Misra Teni's son.
Narendra Modi remembered revolutionary freedom fighter Chand Shekhar Azad fondly, calling him a gallant son of 'Bharat Mata' and a remarkable man.
On February 27, 1931, Indian freedom fighter Chandra Shekhar Azad shot himself in the head during a faceoff with British police thus fulfilling his vow of dying as a free man and not as a captive in British prisons.
Police have ruled out the suggestion that the victims' hands were tied, citing the absence of any injury marks.
He also expressed concern over the law and order situation
Azad visited the family after the Uttar Pradesh Police lifted its two-day blockade around the village of the victim.
Chandrashekhar Azad said everyone had heard about Jallianwala Bagh, but now they are talking about Shaheen Bagh. 'I promise you that in the next 10 days, there will be at least 5,000 Shaheen Baghs across the country.'
The court had restrained Azad from visiting Delhi for four weeks and directed him to not hold any 'dharna' till the elections in the national capital, while granting him bail in the case.
Out on bail, Azad says he will continue his fight against the citizenship law till it is rolled back.
The court restrained the Bhim Army chief from holding any protests till Delhi elections are over.
A car was set afire in Delhi's Daryaganj and protesters hurled stones at security personnel near Delhi Gate.
The Delhi Police resorted to mild lathi-charge and used tear gas to disperse the violent agitators after they set an ablaze couple of two-wheelers and attacked a police vehicle.
Though Mayawati has always been critical of Chandrashekhar -- even calling him the B team of the BJP, this is the first time the Bhim Army Chief has mounted an attack on the BSP President.
The Dalit group's founder also said the Bhim Army will support the SP-BSP alliance if it fields Satish Chandra Mishra, Mayawati's general secretary and Brahmin face of the BSP, from the Varanasi seat.
Chandrashekhar also claimed that Mayawati was being 'misled' by Satish Chandra Mishra, her general secretary and Brahmin face of the BSP.
On Friday, the district administration granted permission to Chandrashekhar Azad, the founder of the Dalit outfit, for the road show from 11 am to 4 pm.
Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad says that his sole aim is to defeat the BJP in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
