A silent demonstration is being organized at Ambedkar Memorial (near Patna High Court) on 14 November 2023 at 11.30 am. In this, former CM Manjhi will be present with various organizations. Jitan Manjhi’s son Santosh Manjhi thanked PM Modi. Santosh Kumar Suman said that PM Modi supported us in difficult times. Nitish Kumar honored him on the floor of the Assembly, but PM Modi has honored Dalits by raising this issue at the national level.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had also said in the election rally of Telangana that Nitish Kumar, a CM of Bihar, has given an example of arrogant tendency by insulting the Dalit former CM in the House. Nitish Kumar said that Jitan Ram Manjhi was not worthy of becoming the CM of Bihar. Let us tell you that Jitan Ram Manjhi’s party Hindustan Awam Morcha is included in the NDA alliance. Along with Manjhi, BJP has opened a front for its ally against CM Nitish Kumar. Senior leaders of BJP have also started targeting Nitish Kumar. What effect this has in the upcoming elections remains to be seen.
