BJP's setback in electoral bonds issue and CAA controversy

It is being held in the background of the severe setback which the BJP suffered in the Supreme Court ruling on the electoral bonds issue and the CAA issue which has created a massive controversy with even foreign government's slamming the move. 

All parties are pulling out all stops to mobilise a mammoth crowd at the historic maidan with a large statue of Chhatrapati Shivaji in the backdrop. Efforts are being made to particular mobile Dalit and Muslim voters in huge numbers.

Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra

Officially the rally marks the culmination of  Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra. Gandhi addressed large gatherings in Malegaon, Bhiwandi, Thane and Dharavi. He paid respects to the memory of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar at the Chaityabhoomi  in Dadar.

Earlier, Congress spokesperson Jairam Ramesh targeted the BJP at a press meet in Thane. He said the electoral bonds scam has exposed the BJP completely. He alleged that the party had used ED and other agencies to extort money from businessmen through the bonds. He said once the serial numbers of the bonds are known and their links to the beneficiaries are exposed then a bigger scam will unfold in the country.
