Saharanpur violence: Bhim Army chief addresses supporters at Jantar Mantar
Clashes erupted on May 5 in Saharanpur's Shabbirpur village after some of its Dalit residents refused to allow a procession by Thakurs (upper caste men) to mark the birth anniversary of Rajput king Maharana Pratap. Therefore, thousands of Dalit rights activists, led by Bhim Army, gathered at the Jantar Mantar to raise their voice against the caste-based violence in Saharanpur city of Uttar Pradesh. Around 5,000 people participated in the protest despite being denied permission by the Delhi Police. Bhim Army founder Chandrashekhar, accused of sharing an objectionable video on social media and disrupting the communal harmony in Saharanpur, was at the event.
The activists demanded that the FIRs lodged against Chandrashekhar and other Dalit activists cancelled and a judicial probe initiated into the incidents of clashes at Saharanpur. They also demanded that the affected families should be given a compensation of Rs 10 lakh.

Though, the protest have found support from many including the students of IIT Madras who went on a two-day hunger strike to show solidarity with the farmers yet the centre seem to be oblivion to their plight.
From carrying skulls to biting snakes to going naked, the farmers have done whatever it requires to draw the attention of the central government but have failed. On Friday, April 14, the farmers wore sarees while protesting at the Jantar Mantar.
