Samiti convener Vittal Doddamaini addressing a rally said that inthe Bhima-Koregaon battle the dalits who fought for British EastIndia Company defeated the Peshwa army comprising Marathas.

The editorial questioned the capability of the Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis government, which is "not able to control the ongoing chaos in the state". Here, Congress accused both the BJP and RSS of Bhima Koregaon incident while BJP accused Congress of creating communal tension. Since the Peshwas, who were Brahmins, were seen as oppressors of Dalits, the victory of the Mahar soldiers over the the Peshwa force is seen as Dalit assertion.
