Mahesh Bhatt leads Muslims dharna, slams Gehlot Govt
Noted Bollywood personality Mahesh Bhatt and several dignitaries participated in a dharna held at the Shaheed Smarak here today by Aligarh-based forum for Muslim Studies and Analysis in protest against alleged injustice rendered to the minority community by the Congress-led government in the state.
Addressing the gathering at the dharna site, Mr Bhatt criticised the state government and said the Congress did symbolise secularism and the composite culture of the Indian society, however, its government in the state had failed to deliver justice to muslims and uphold the party credentials.
He said Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot should mend his government's ways and take care of minority people otherwise people like him (Bhatt), who had supported the party would be forced to oppose it in the next polls in the state and the country.
He said Congress leadership that meets shortly here at its Chintan Shivir, should also take note of it and direct its Chief Minister to do the needful.
