BACKGROUND:
The 200th anniversary of Bhima-Koregaon movement took a violent turn this year when a youth died in clashes on during an event to mark the day. A 28-year-old man was killed in the clashes and mobs damaged and torched several vehicles and shops and ransacked houses on 1st January of this year. An estimated worth Rs 13 crore of a property was damaged or destroyed in the riots.
During the investigation so-called Dalit activist Sudhir Dhawale was arrested from his home in Mumbai, while lawyer Surendra Gadling, activist Mahesh Raut and Shoma Sen were picked up from Nagpur and Rona Wilson was arrested from his flat in Munirka in Delhi in simultaneous raids in June along with a letter that revealed the plan of assassinating PM Modi and role of Congress.
After the arrest, BJP exposed the real face of Congress and its role in Bhima Koregaon violence that left one dead and several injured, including 10 policemen. Referring to letter recovered from the house of Bhima-Koregaon violence accused Rona Wilson, Sambit Patra launched a scathing attack on opposition saying, “This letter isn’t just a letter, it strips every cloth of modesty Congress party was trying to wear. They’ve been exposed before people. Dalits were being used as tools.”
