NEW DELHI: Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad, who was recently out of jail has once again appeals to BSP supremo Mayawati asking her to join him in fight against the BJP, The Indian Express reported.
Lettes to Mayawati
In an open letter to the former Uttar Pradesh CM, Chandrashekhar, who has emerged as the new hero of Dalit politics seek support from his ‘bua’ (aunt) Mayawati to come together to strengthen the Bahujan movement in giving a befitting reply to the government for its alleged anti-Dalit politics.
“I believe the key to the problems of contemporary India is only with the Bahujan society. If there is a problem, we have to look within. It is my request that we must keep aside all our differences and sit together for deliberations. Because only discussions and deliberations can only open a new way. …given that you are a member of the core team of Honourable Kanshiram, your experience is of importance to us. We hope that you will participate in this discussion,” Chandrashekhar has said in the letter.
Chandrasekhar’s relationship with Mayawati is not good. However, despite being accused as a “BJP agent” by the BSP supremo, the young Dalit leader from Saharanpur still want to support her to “save the Bahujan movement.”
Chandrashekhar alias Ravana, head of Bhim Sena, a regional caste based outfit working for Dalits came into prominence during the May 2017, where Rajputs and SCs clashed violently in Saharanpur.
This public stance towards Mayawati comes at a time when the BSP is facing various kinds of crises in electoral politics.
