New Delhi, Chief Ministers Arvind Kejriwal (Delhi), Mamata Banerjee (West Bengal) and N. Chandrababu Naidu (Andhra Pradesh) will address a ‘Remove Dictatorship, Save Democracy Rally’ at Jantar Mantar here on Wednesday, the AAP said on Tuesday.
The main leaders of other non-BJP parties, including Sharad Yadav, Sharad Pawar, Farooq Abdullah, Ram Gopal Yadav, Yashwant Sinha, Kanimozhi and representative from the RJD will also take part in the rally, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Gopal Rai told IANS.
Rebel BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha too will attend, Rai said.
An invitation has been sent to Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s office and someone from the party will also join the protest.
“India is currently passing through a decisive phase. The Modi-Shah duo is bent upon destroying the Constitution and democracy, which our country succeeded in achieving due to the sacrifices of millions of freedom fighters,” Rai said.
He also said that to take forward this struggle, the Chief Ministers of Andhra Pradesh, Delhi and West Bengal (Naidu, Kejriwal and Banerjee) will address the Wednesday rally.
“Elected governments of non-BJP parties have been targeted by the Modi government, which has made a mockery of the federal structure of the Constitution,” Rai said.
“The Modi government has crossed all limits through blatant misuse of central agencies to throttle political opponents and it has no respect for the rule of law,” he said.
