Lok Sabha Elections: Case filed against Prakash Ambedkar for remarks against EC

Yavatmal district collector lodged a complaint against Dalit leader Prakash Ambedkar at Digras Police station and booked him under various sections of IPC


After Bharip Bahujan Mahasangh (BBM) chief Prakash Ambedkar made a controversial remark against Election Commission (EC), a case was registered against the Dalit leader on Thursday at Digras Police station in Maharashtra’s Yavatmal district.  

The case was filed by Yavatmal district collector under sections 503 (criminal intimidation), 505, and 189 (Threat of injury to public servant) of Indian Penal Code (IPC) after Ambedkar said that if voted to power, they will jail EC for two days.  

After the announcement for Lok Sabha election dates, EC had directed the political parties to not talk about Pulwama terror attacks which happened earlier in February. 

How can EC restrain us from talking about Pulwama attacks which took the lives of 40 jawans? Our constitution has given us the right to speak. If voted to power, we will jail EC for two days,” Prakash Ambedkar reacted while addressing a rally in Yavatmal.
