Bhim Army Chief Chandrashekhar Azad was asked a question about revenge in an interview. In response to this, he gave something like this.
Bhim Army Chief Chandrashekhar Azad is in discussion before the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections. He has made it clear that he will tie up with like-minded parties in this election. Apart from this, when he was asked about the alliance with BJP, he had said that we have an ideology fight with BJP. We cannot forge an alliance with BJP at any cost. Chandrashekhar Azad was arrested after the violence in Saharanpur in April 2017 and was even slapped with the National Security Act (NSA).
Recently, in an interview with ‘UP Tak’, he was asked a question about this. Chandrashekhar was asked, ‘Young mind is the avenger. If you become a king maker or become a king, will you take revenge on those who imposed NSA?’ In response, he said, ‘I am a person associated with ideology. I believe in my gurus and saints. Here we are talking about connecting. Ravidas ji Maharaj said that the society should live like a bee lives in the hive. I am not looking for revenge, but for change.’
Reply to Chandrashekhar Azad: Chandrashekhar further says, ‘We were talking about making Prayagraj a smart city, but the pits are not being filled. I thank the government that they told the Dalits that if you fight for your rights, they will put you in jail. That’s why we say that our struggle is not over yet. In the Bijnor case, the accused is a Muslim, so I went there also. All I want to say is that there is no caste or religion of a criminal. If a Dalit is a criminal, we will oppose that too. I am also opposed to the Congress government.
Taking a jibe at Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, he had said, ‘I will drag the CM of Rajasthan out and ask if that is why Dalits’ vote was taken. I have heard about Yogi ji that he gets the soap kept and bathes the Dalits before meeting them. In an interview, he was asked about giving the benefit of reservation to able-bodied people. In response, he had said, ‘Reservation never meant profit but social participation. Now those who abuse reservation are sitting on top, so how will it benefit the Dalits?
