'I'll campaign in Karnataka to ensure Dalit votes against BJP': Jignesh Mevani
Newly elected Gujarat Legislative Assembly member, Jignesh Mevani is determined to prevent any Dalit vote for BJP by campaigning for three weeks in Karnataka.

"I am coming to Karnataka in April to campaign for three weeks to make sure that the 30% of Dalits votes won't go to the BJP", Mewani said during his speech at Gauri Day programme at the Town Hall here on Monday.

"I know it is my duty to convince Dalits about the atrocities against the community, the pains of Radhika Vemula, the tortures of youths in Una and others done by the BJP and the Sangh Parivar outfits across the country", he added.

He further said that the Modi government has failed to provide employment to youth and asked the PM to retire. "Modi came to power by promising to generate lakhs of jobs in the country, but he has failed. He could better retire from politics. In coming months, we will come up with a formula to tackle unemployment", said Mevani.

Mevani also said that when Modi speaks at the Red Fort on August 15, he will simultaneously go for a Facebook Live session to address the real issues with the solutions.



The panel discussion on the topic of 'The future of India as Gauri had dreamt it', was moderated by Human Rights activist Teesta Setalvad with panellists Jignesh Mewani, Kanhaiya Kumar, Shehla Rashid, Umar Khalid, Richa Singh, Dr Vasu, Vikas Mourya and Kumar Buradikatti.
