Mumbai police deny permission to Jignesh Mevani's event

Jignesh Mevani Live updates: Violence hits Mumbai, parts of Maharashtra as caste clashes turn ugly

Meanwhile, Section 144 of the Indian Penal Code has also been imposed at the venue, reports said.

Describing as "childish" the FIR against him for allegedly instigating the Bhima-Koregaon violence, Mevani warned of a befitting reply if the BJP-RSS continued to attack Dalits and tried to tarnish his image.

Massive protests hit the roof of Mumbai's Vile Parle area as police shorn of permission for an event planned to be addressed by the dalit leader and newly-elected MLA Jignesh Mevani and Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University's (JNU) student leader Umar Khalid on Thursday.

Addressing a gathering at Pune's Shaniwar Wada fort on the 200th anniversary of the historically significant Battle of Koregaon, Mevani allegedly called for a "revolution" and said it will have to come about on the roads. I am just being targeted.

Additional Commissioner of Police Ravindra Sengaonkar said: "In the speeches delivered on December 31, Mevani and Khalid had made some provocative statements". Despite having video evidence of the violence, it is ridiculous that we are being targeted. To ensure that peace is maintained, I did not even visit Koregaon Bhima. "This is a part of an agenda to divert attention from Sambhaji Bhide and Milind Ekbote", Khalid told PTI. "Their statements caused tension and trouble between two communities and it is suspected that it led to the trouble in Koregaon Bhima", said additional commissioner of police (south region) Ravindra Sengaonkar.

Khalaf said consumers were spending less on discretionary items given stagnant wages and high inflation. Total grocery sales growth was ahead of that of Q2 (1.4%), however marginally behind that of Q1 (3.0%).

The complaint said that the clashes between the two communities in Pune were a result of the provocative speeches by the duo. "Why is PM Modi, who is claiming to be an Ambedkarite, silent?"

Bhalerao said that the Sangathan had now chose to hold a press conference in Mumbai to be addressed by both Mevani and Umar Khalid.

The Battle of Koregaon was fought on January 1, 1818 between the British East India Company and the Peshwa faction of the Maratha Confederacy, at Koregaon Bhima.

It is believed that his call for action and revolution may have inspired thousands of Dalit activists who took to the streets in across different cities of Maharashtra on Wednesday, disrupted public transport, and threw normal life out of gear.
