Mewani also slammed the central government saying he is being targeted. He also asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to clear his stand on the recent violence in Maharashtra.

“I am an elected representative. BJP is scared of me. We want a caste-less India. Don’t Dalits have the right to protest", he added.
