SHARES


Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday demanded swift action against the culprits involved in the vandalism at Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar’s home ‘Rajgruha’. The Matunga Police has registered an FIR in connection with the incident. 

The flower pots in the premises of ‘Rajgruha’ in Mumbai were smashed and some CCTV cameras were also damaged. However, the police have dismissed the political angle in the attack. 

Reacting to the incident, AAP has labelled this as a “national disgrace” while condemning the destruction caused at Rajgruha in Dadar. Rajgruha also happens to be a heritage property and is part of our nation’s priceless cultural and tangible heritage, it pointed out. 

“Attack on Dr Ambedkar's home is by the same forces who attack the constitution he authored. He remains an ever-inspiring figure who defined immutable constitutional morality in India and was a champion of the oppressed,” AAP said in a statement. 

Maharashtra AAP Secretary Dhananjay Shinde said that this vandalism was shameful and unacceptable. 

“The symbolism of Rajgruha is very important. It reminds us that Dr Ambedkar walked humbly amongst us and yet took the nation to a higher plane. We demand swift action against the culprits and safeguards for the future," said Preeti Sharma Menon, National Executive Member of the AAP.

The act of vandalism at the residence of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar has sparked huge chaos among the followers and politicians in Maharashtra. Leaders across the party lines have condemned the issue and have demanded strict action against the accused.
