We begin by giving you good news on the defenders front. Chandrashekhar the Head of the Bhim Army was released today from detention under the National Security Act after one year in jail. His case in the Supreme Court was to come up today but was shifted to Monday. In the meanwhile he was released this morning at 2:30 a.m. from Saharanpur Jail. We are trying to get him for the meeting but the logistics is daunting.
Attached you will find the revised programme.
