Meanwhile, several parts of the country are witnessing a shutdown and protests against the Supreme Court's ruling on the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe Protection Act.

The government has made a decision to file a review petition in Supreme Court regarding their verdict on the SC/ST protection act.

Tumkur: Rahul Gandhi, who is in Karnataka ahead of the assembly elections, held a road show in Tumakuru on Wednesday and a video of a supporter throwing a garland at him has gone viral.

Shah, whose party has often accused the opposition of fuelling unfounded campaign against it before elections, said the script had now become old and that vested interest groups started spreading panic about reservations before polls. "JDS has to make it clear whether they are supporting BJP or not", he said. "At every juncture and in all possible ways, the BJP stands shoulder to shoulder with the Dalit community", he said. Wylie in a deposition before the House of Commons Digital, Culture, Media and Sports Committee in London had asserted that company had worked extensively in India and believed it was employed by the Congress party. Making a suo motu statement in the Lok Sabha during Zero Hour on the large scale violence during yesterday's Bharat Bandh, the home minister said eight people were killed - six in Madhya Pradesh and one each in Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan, during the bandh which also witnessed clashes between the police and the protesters.

Politics of illusion to cast false impression, says BJP
He is also likely to garner support from opposition leaders on No-confidence motion that is likely to be taken up in Lok Sabha. We were allies, we got elected ... they bitrate us, only to put pressure I raised my voice, my ministers exited the government.

"I wish to assure you that our government is fully committed to the welfare of SCs and STs".

"Of course a review petition on SC/ST protection act should be filed and its the right of the Government, it's a legal procedure".

"Rohit Vemula is murdered. The Prime Minister knows Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi very well, but in his speeches, he never tells you that Nirav Modi ran away with Rs 30,000 crore of your money", Rahul told people at a rally. "Modi prefers not to speak aword", he said.
