Vadgam MLA Jignesh Mevani has yet not been granted permission to hold "Social Justice" rally or "Yuva Hunkaar Rally" in the national capital but the newly elected lawmaker is all set to go ahead with it.

The Dalit leader still held his own, and decide to continue the Youth Hunkar rally. "But the government is targeting us", Mevani told reporters before arriving at the venue.

"No permission has been given to anyone (to hold a rally)", Joint Commissioner of Police Ajay Chaudhary told reporters here.

I believe in politics of love, not love jihad. We are the believers of love. "We will celebrate 14th February (Valentines' Day)", Jignesh Mevani said to huge cheers from the audience.

Referring to the violence that marked the 200th anniversary of the Bhima Koregaon battle in Pune last week, he asked: "Why the violence took place in Bhima Koregaon?" You have to answer why people are not getting the money that is in the foreign accounts of Indians. Why Rohit Vemula died?

"The 125 crore people of this country are watching that someone is not being allowed to speak for merely demanding the release of Chandrashekhar Azad, effective implementation of the Constitution and two crore jobs to the youth", he said.

Mevani also asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to break his silence on the violence that was carried out on Dalits in Saharanpur and later in Bhima Koregaon. Several student leaders, including Kanhaiya Kumar, are expected to attend the rally.

The dalit leader alleged that the "false" F.I.R.is the brainchild of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the Bharatiyia Janata Party (BJP).

Deputies are doing a K-9 track in the area and have closed Canyon Road at 176th Street South all the way to the end of the road. Daniel McCartney, 34, was chasing the suspect when shots were exchanged, fatally wounding the officer, authorities said.

The organisers, however, said that the programme would go on as per the intended schedule. Heavy security has still enveloped the rally, with nearly 15 thousand security police, who have been equipped with water cannons and tear gas bombs to be prepared for any violent situation that arise from the rally. The Delhi police had denied permission for the rally, which the leaders cited as an instance of the Centre's "authoritarian mindset".
