Former JNUSU President Kanhaiya Kumar was previously with the CPI while Dalit leader Jignesh Mevani is an independent MLA from Gujarat and the convener of RDAM.
An independent MLA from Gujarat Jignesh Mehvani said he will join the Congress along with former JNU student leader Kanhaiya Kumar on September 28.
Mevani made the accusations while taking part in the motion to thank Governor O P Kohli for his address to the House.
The trio "raided" the house of a woman with over a dozen supporters claiming they wanted to expose the alleegd "liquor den" operating there.
Khalid tweeted he has asked for police protection.
In the complaint letter the BJP accused Mevani of calling Prime Minister Modi 'a corporate salesman and a thief.'
"I request my dalit brothers and sisters to protest as much as they want, but please don’t destroy public property as it is our tax money,” Mevani told reporters.
Mevani has alleged the police pulled him out of his car, broke his car keys and detained him on way to a protest at Ambedkar statue in Sarangpur, Ahmedabad.
Kanhaiya, Rashid, Khalid and Left activist Kavita Krishnan took to Twitter to remember Lankesh.
General elections are due to be held in 2019 and Radhika Vemula has been urging dalits from across the country to come together to defeat the BJP.
Mevani was brusquely told that he cannot dictate terms to the media and that there was no need for the press meet.
Recently, Union minister Ramdas Athawale, also a dalit, had blasted Mevani, saying he was putting Dalits in "danger".
Mevani and his supporters were reported to be going ahead with the rally despite Delhi police denying permission for the event.
