Chandrasekhar Bheem Army Chief claimed that only he had the capability to send Modi back to Gujarat and defeat him in the upcoming elections

Meerut:MNN:Chandrasekhar Bheem Army Chief was brought to Anand Hospital on Tuesday,

after his condition suddenly deteriorated while he was being detained by the police in Deoband.

In hospital visit, Priyanka Gandhi today travelled to Meerut in Uttar Pradesh to call upon Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad,

also known as Ravan, a very influential Dalit leader who is known to be a spoiler in poll arithmetic.

“I will go to Varanasi to contest the election against Prime Minister Narendra Modi,”

declared the 30-year-old, speaking to Metro City Express from his hospital bed.

Chandrashekhar the Bhim Army chief a lawyer, was arrested in Deoband

for poll code violation when he was planning to take out a motorcycle rally, allegedly without permission,

He reportedly fell ill after he was taken into custody, and then admitted to hospital.

Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi on Wednesday evening visited Bheem Army Chief Chandrashekhar Azad alias Ravan,

who is admitted to Anand Hospital in Meerut.

Accompanied by Jyotiraditya Scindia and UPCC chief Raj Babbar,

Priyanka said that she appreciates the ‘josh’ and struggle of Chandrasekhar.

They denied any political twist in the visit.

As Priyanka Gandhi arrived at the hospital, Chandrashekhar’s supporters had blocked their way.

They finally relented after 15 minutes of convincing.

In her interaction with the media, Priyanka said that her visit is not a political one and that she has come to inquire about the health of Chandrashekhar.

“He is young, struggling and trying to raise his voice against injustice,” Priyanka said,

adding that he is making efforts to become the voice of the poor and downtrodden but the state government and the central government are trying to crush his voice.

But in a region where Dalits make up 30 per cent of the population, those words can’t be taken at face value.

Priyanka Gandhi, who was last month given charge of the Congress’s campaign in 41 seats in Uttar Pradesh

the state with the most number of Lok Sabha seats – for the April-May national election,

has been talking to smaller parties over the past few weeks.

The visuals of her meeting with Chandrashekhar Azad are likely to send out a pointed message to Dalits at a time Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati is trying her best to consolidate their votes.
