Government plans to instigate riots before elections: Prakash Ambedkar

Bharip Bahujan Mahasangh (BBM) chief Dr Prakash Ambedkar on Wednesday slammed BJP government and alleged that the government is conspiring to create chaos in the country between those who oppose reservation and those who possess it.

Later, the government plans to impose emergency in the country to postpone elections. Bhima-Koregaon Violence is the example for the same, he added.

While addressing the media at BBM’s headquarters, Ambedkar asserted,

For the last four years, we have been fighting against BJP and it is afraid now. Out of this fear, BJP is attempting to riot and to make things work in their accordance. The government had anticipated that there will be riots after the Supreme Court’s decision on Maratha reservation. However, this did not happen.”

The BBM chief further said that there has been no action taken against the accused (Milind Ekbote and Sambhaji Bhide) who instigated the Bhima-Koregaon Violence. Rather, the government is using its police force to attack them, he added.

Speaking on the arrests of five activists in connection with the Bhima-Koregaon violence, Ambedkar alleged that despite court’s order, the police conducted raids and it has refused to give any reply.

When asked about the letter which mentions the assassination of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Ambedkar rejected the claim and said that it is a publicity stunt to gain sympathy.

In the threat issued to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and PM Modi, a name, Comrade Prakash, was mistaken to be as Prakash Ambedkar by the media. However, the police clarified that Comrade Prakash is from Assam and the name mentioned in the letter has nothing to do with the BBM chief.
