The event titled, 'Yuva Hoonkar rally and Jansabha' aims to question PM Narendra Modi's government over unemployment and rise in attacks on Dalits.
Last week, the All India Student's Summit 2018, where JNU student leader Umar Khalid and Vadgam MLA Jignesh Mevani were supposed to speak, was cancelled in Mumbai. Police forcibly removed students gathered for Chhatra Bharati event outside Bhaidas Hall and imposed Section 149 of IPC to prevent 'unlawful assembly'. Members of Chhatra Bharti staged a protest outside Juhu Police Station after some members were detained by Police.
