Pune: Dalit outfit Bhim Army ann-ounced that its founder Chandrashekhar Azad alias Ravan would addr-ess a rally in Pune on December 30, ahead of the 201st anniversary of the Battle of Bhima Koregaon on January 1.

On Wednesday, the organisation said over 30,000 people were expe-cted to attend the “Bhima Koregaon Sangharsh Mahasabha”.

 

The rally will be held on SSPMS grounds here and besides Mr Azad, several other leaders of the outfit would be present for the event. Datta Pol, the district president of Bhim Army, said that during the three-day programme, Mr Azad would address the rally on December 30 and interact with some students of the Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) the next day.

He would visit the memorial at Bhima Koregaon on January 1, Mr Pol said. “On Janu-ary 1, Mr Azad will first visit the obelisk at Bhima Koregaon and la-ter shower flowers on it from a helicopter,” he said. Mr Pol added that they had applied to the city and rural police for permission to hold the ‘Mahasabha’ in Pune and also for the visit to the memorial. “We are confident that we would get permissions... there is no reason for the police to deny permission for the events,” he added.
