A day after Congress General Secretary in charge of Uttar Pradesh (East) Priyanka Gandhi Vadra met Bhim Army Chief Chandrashekhar Azad, the latter has now threatened to indulge in violence by resorting to similar acts like Bhima Koregaon violence if their demands are not met.
“If our demands are not met, if we are ignored, then Bahujan Samaj has the strength and the audacity to repeat Bhima Koregaon,” said Bhim Army Chief Chandrashekhar.

Bhim Army Chief Chandrashekhar Azad is also stated to contest against Prime Minister Narendra Modi from the Varanasi seat. Reportedly, he has asked the SP-BSP alliance to show the seriousness of their fight against the BJP by giving a ticket to Kanshi Ram’s sister to contest in the upcoming elections.
Interestingly, the threats to destabilise the society just ahead of the Lok Sabha elections comes after his meeting with Congress party leader and Rahul Gandhi’s sister Priyanka Gandhi. The open threat by the left-wing forces allegedly aided by the Congress party against the Upper castes and other nationalist forces may create a volatile situation across the country, which helps the Congress party to mount an attack against the Narendra Modi government for failing to conduct peaceful elections.
Bhima Koregaon was well-planned violence orchestrated by left-wing self-proclaimed Dalit activists under the garb of celebrating the 200th anniversary of a battle at Bhima Koregaon battle on 1st January, which had resulted in a British victory over the Peshwas and spun by the so-called historians to be a victory of the Dalits over Brahmins, which prompts such annual celebrations.
The controversial Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani and anti-national sloganeer Umar Khalid had attended the event where Mevani was allegedly seen inciting people to indulge in ‘street battles’. Months later, the Pune Police had arrested more than 10 ‘Urban Naxals’ from various parts of the country for not only planning the violence at Bhima-Koregaon but also in a plot to assassinate the Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
