Dalit leader Jignesh Mevani’s convoy was attacked in Banaskantha on tuesday when he was there to address people for the upcoming Gujarat election.
In a tweet, Mevani accused BJP of this attack and ensured his supporters that BJP can not frighten him and he will not bow down. In his tweet, he said, “BJP has frightened that’s why it is adopting these kinds of activities, but I am not afraid, I am a revolutionary and I will not bow down to BJP but I will definitely defeat them.”
