A man left a dead man ruthlessly on Monday due to the clashes between Dalit groups and supporters of right-wing Hindu organisations during the 200th-anniversary celebrations of the Bhima-Koregaon battle in Pune. Cases were registered in Pune by the Pimpri police against Milind Ekbote and Sambhaji Bhide, who heads the Hindu Ekta Aghadi and Shivraj Pratishthan respectively, for the allegedly conducting the violence. More than 160 buses were damaged in Mumbai by the protesters over 100 of whom were detained said the police.
“A central pillar of the RSS/BJP's fascist vision for India is that Dalits should remain at the bottom of Indian society. Una, Rohith Vemula and now Bhima-Koregaon are potent symbols of the resistance,” said Rahul Gandhi. They blocked roads in several areas, forced shops to shut down, and also attacked a journalist of a television news channel. Protesters staged a rail roko in Chembur. Groups of protesters held demonstrations in Chembur, Vikhroli, Mankhurd, and Govandi, police said. Hundreds of protesters gathered in Priyadarshini, Kurla, Sidharth Colony and Amar Mahal areas on the Eastern Express Highway, took out processions and raised slogans against the government and the administration.
Former Union Minister said, "Since the administration did not take precautions, rumours and misunderstanding spread. A youth in Nanded died, unfortunately. People from the political and social field should defuse the situation harmoniously and patiently without making provocative speeches.”
Maharashtra Congress chief Ashok Chavan requested the people not to believe in rumours. As antisocial elements were trying to create trouble between Dalits and Maratha communities for political benefit. AAP spokesperson said the Fadnavis government failed to keep the peace. "The attack has resulted in unrest across the state between upper caste Hindus and Dalits," she said.
And finally the protest has come to an end. Prakash Ambedkar withdraws protest across Maharashtra. The Bhima Koregaon violence ends.
