In an attempt to woo Scheduled Castes (SC) ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections 2019, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) SC Morcha organised a Bhim Mahasangam Rally in Delhi's Ramlila Maidan on Sunday.
The BJP had collected rice and pulses from three lakh SC houses for preparing Samrasta Khichdi, which was served to the people participating in the rally.
