Standing in front of the Indian Women’s Press Corps, Kamal Singh Walia, general secretary of Bhim Army, said, “If they are not released in 10 days, we will start a Bharat bandh andolan. The government wants to drown this movement.”
The Bhim Army is scheduled to hold a Hunkar Rally at Jantar Mantar Friday to press for its demands, including the rollback of 10 per cent quota in government jobs for the economically weak among the general category.
National President of the Bhim Army Vinay Ratan Singh said that Priyanka’s visit came as a complete surprise. “There was no prior communication about her visit. She came and expressed support to us. We are busy ensuring that our rally to Delhi is successful,” he told The Indian Express.
