In a hyped up event, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will be cooking over 3,000 kg of khichdi at its Dalit rally in Delhi on Sunday.
This event also aims to create a world record.
It need be mentioned that the local delicacy will be cooked with rice and lentils collected from Dalit homes at Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan.
The prepared food will then be distributed among the party workers and supporters at ‘Bhim Mahasangam Vijay Sankalp’ rally under the leadership of BJP president Amit Shah.
In November 2017, renowned chef Sanjeev Kapoor cooked 918 kg of khichdi, which currently holds the record for the world’s largest khichdi, at ‘World Food India’ festival organised by the Ministry of Food Processing Industries in Delhi.
Amit Shah will also address the rally recounting the work done by the party for the Dalit community in Delhi.
Interestingly, this comes amidst the continuous allegations levelled by the Congress against the Prime Minister Narendra Modi that he has failed to address the needs of marginalised sections of the society and not making enough efforts to uplift the Dalits in the country.
