Mumbai: Hardik Patel, convener of Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti, is in Mumbai to participate in the Opposition’s ‘Save Constitution’ march.
NCP leader Sharad Pawar placed calls to senior leaders across the opposition parties to invite them for the march. Independent MP Raju Shetti, who broke away from the BJP in August last, is one of the organisers.
The press conference by four of the senior-most Supreme Court judges alluding to administrative mismanagement and selective allocation of cases to preferred benches was the tipping point for the march.
January 26 was selected as it was the day when India adopted the Constitution, NCP spokesperson DP Tripathi said.
In an attempt to counter the Opposition, the BJP is also plannin a rally in Mumbai — the Tiranga Yatra.
