Aam Aadmi Party, Maharashtra leaders Brigadier Sudhir Sawant and Mr.Dhananjay Shinde along with AAP volunteers supported the Elgar March at Azad Maidan.
Manohar Bhide, also known as Sambhaji Bhide is the main accused in the violence that broke out at Bhima Koregaon in which one person lost his life. He had been booked under non bailable sections of the SC/ST Prevention of Atrocities act , yet he roams free!
It is no secret that Hindu extremist Sambhaji Bhide enjoys great relations with Prime Minister Modi and the BJP government.

PM Modi had tweeted a video on 19th February,2018 being Shivaji Jayanti with photos of Bhide on the stage with him. Important to note that this was after the Bhima Koregaon incident and he was accused at the time.
PM Modi is infamous for following trolls on Twitter who had ‘celebrated’ the murder of rational writer Gauri Lankesh. He also had photos with Nirav Modi, who pulled off one of the biggest financial scams in India.
The major question, Why has Bhide not been arrested yet?is it due to his closeness with the ruling party?
In a functioning democracy, when there arises the need for such a large scale protest for Government to nab a notorious and dangerous element, can we really believe that the government is running fairly?
Aam Aadmi Party condemns the state and central government for failing to do their duty and to arrest Sambhaji Bhide who is a threat to the society.
