Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad launches Azad Samaj Party

Prime News, National, New Delhi, March 16:- Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad launched his political outfit the Azad Samaj Party on Sunday — the birth anniversary of BSP founder Kanshi Ram.

Before launching his party at an event held in Safai village in Noida, the 37-year-old Dalit leader made Kanshi Ram’s photograph his Twitter profile picture. He also launched the party flag — a white band between two blue strips with Azad Samaj Party written in the middle.

Azad said the Bhim Army will run parallel to the party and continue to fight for Dalit rights and enrol new members. The advocate-turned-politician has been critical of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati, “for not doing enough for the Dalits.” Mayawati had earlier termed Azad a “BJP agent” and cautioned her supporters not to ‘fall prey to his designs.” (Inputs: Agencies, NGB)
