Solidarity with Kabir Kala Manch Activists / Statement by Sagar Gorkhe and Ramesh Gaichor

Bhima Koregaon arrests – Jyoti Jagtap has been arrested

By Bhima Koregaon Shauryadin Prerana Abhiyan, Maharashtra

Press release 8 September 2020
Pune ATS has today arrested Jyoti Jagtap (Member of Bhima Koregaon Shauryadin Prerana Abhiyan and Kabir Kala Manch). She will be transfered to NIA for custody. Yesterday, on 7 September, Sagar Gorkhe and Ramesh Gaichor were arrested late evening and today Jyoti Jagtap has been arrested. Since June 2018, one after another such 15 human rights activists, lawyers, professors, writers and artists have been arrested in the Bhima Koregaon – Elgar Parishad case.
As a artist, activist and writer, Jyoti Jagtap has been working in the Ambedkariate movement for many years. Arrests of these three should be considered as an alert. Modi Government is once again starting an arrests series to create fear atmosphere in the country. In this case, police never had any evidences nor does it have today. Fabricated letters and utterly fake stories, that’s what all they do. This government is again and again failing to solve people’s issues, henceforth it is diverting public with creating false enemy like Urban Naxal.
Bhima Koregaon – Elgar Parishad case has become like a boiling oil pot as described in the Brahminical Puranas. Anyone who challenges Brahminical regime, is being thrown into it. We wish to tell the Modi government that people’s anger is intensifying against all of this.
As Bhima Koregaon Shauryadin Prerana Abhiyan, we appeal you to raise high voice for the release of Jyoti Jagtap.


Not Savarkar, We are children of Ambedkar, We will not apologise!

Sudha Bharadwaj was arrested by the Pune Police on suspicion of being involved in Maoist terror activities in August 2018, along with five other accused across the country.
An alumnus of Indian Institute of Technology, Bharadwaj has been living in the Indian state of Chhattisgarh for the last 29 years and has worked as trade unionist and civil rights activist for most of her life.
Having been exposed to horrific working conditions of labourers during her time as a student at IIT, she moved to work with the late Shankar Guha Niyogi’s Chhattisgarh Mukti Morcha in 1986.
She fought passionately against corrupt bureaucrats to ensure proper wages were paid to the workers in the mines and plants located in Bhilai. She also engaged in issues of Dalit and Adivasi rights, specifically the right to land, the right to education, health and for security against corrupt landlords.
Here is #InBetweenNews ‘s special report on Sudha Bharadwaj’s overtly political arrest and her life as an activist.
