The Delhi Police today said that Vadgam MLA Jignesh Mevani's request for holding a rally here tomorrow on Parliament Street has not been granted yet.

Meanwhile, posters calling Mevani a deshdrohi (traitor) and sympathizer of naxals have appeared in Parliament Street area ahead of his scheduled rally on Tuesday.

Reacting to Minister of State MoS, Anantkumar Hegde's remarks on the Constitution, Mevani said, "We believe in the constitution and will protect it". Although authorities had maintained till the last minute that Mevani and his supporters did not have permission to hold the event, it seems the rally organisers and Delhi Police reached a compromise later. "If an elected representative does not have the right to do so, then this is Gujarat model", Mevani said to loud cheers from a crowd comprising student activists from Delhi, Lucknow and Allahabad among other places. PM Modi has to choose between the two, Manusmriti and the constitution. "Hardik Patel, Alpesh Thakore and Jignesh Mevani crushed BJP's target of 150 seats in Gujarat and that is why I am being targetted", he said. The rally demanded the release of Bhim Army founder Chandrashekhar Azad who was arrested past year in connection with the Dalit-Thakur clashes in Saharanpur, Uttar Pradesh.

Deyshia Hargrave, an English language arts teacher in Kaplan, L.A., spoke out on teacher before being removed in handcuffs. After the board approved the raise, Hargrave was again recognized by the board and voiced her frustrations.

"I am asking a question today, when will 2 crore youth of the nation get jobs", he said. Of the 282 MPs, 109 MPs have serious crimes allegations against them. "We are not against any religion or any community, we are here for the constitution. We don't have crowds, but we have real, living breathing people".

He said Mevani, supported by the Congress in the Gujarat Assembly polls, had joined hands with Umar Khalid, accused of raising anti-India slogans in JNU, and added that Gandhi had strengthened Mevani and his allies.

Jignesh, who has been accused of incing caste tension in Maharashtra, on Friday said the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have tried to tarnish his image due to the fear of set back in 2019 Lok Sabha election. Almost 15,000 security personnel - armed with water cannons and tear gas - were deployed in areas near Jantar Mantar and Parliament Street in the national capital to prevent protesters from carrying out a march to the Parliament building. Akhil Gogoi, Assam's farmer leader and senior Supreme Court lawyer Prashant Bhushan also attended the rally. Extra troops were also called in from the neighbouring districts.
