BJP eroding Ambedkar's legacy, PM Modi playing politics, says Congress

Why Rahul Gandhi wished this newly-married couple

Referring to reports of Ambedkar's sculpture locked in an iron cage for protection in Badaun, Selja said, "You (NDA government) have not kept his statue in the cage but his ideologies". India wants to know: "when?" asked Gandhi on Twitter late on Friday evening.

Shelja also rejected the BJP's claim that the Congress was "politicising" the Unnao and Kathua rape cases. "The incidents that have been in discussion for the last two days are shameful".

The party has also sought the resignation of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. "We wish he will convert the words into deeds". We want that the prime minister should initiate some steps. "Mere slogans and "jumlas" will neither prevent nor reduce Unnaos and Kathuas", he said. Her body was found in the same area a week later.

"When we talk about Unnao and Kathua rape cases, you could straight away see the politics in it". Kuldeep Singh Sengar, MLA from Bangarmau constituency, was today arrested by the CBI. The Congress leader said the BJP can inaugurate as many memorials as they like, "but the fact is that they are reducing sub-plans, financial allocations". Who puts a question mark on reservation every now and then? "Any attempt to rewrite history, erase history will not work", he said.

"Is it respect if you try to amend the legacy of Babasaheb Ambedkar?" A day after the PM's acerbic speech targeting Congress on the Dalit front, AICC spokesperson Kumari Selja said, "One should not forget what views RSS and its ideologues had about Ambedkar during his lifetime".

On the other hand, an eight-year-old girl belonging to a nomadic Muslim tribe in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir was allegedly abducted, drugged, gang-raped, tortured and killed in January.
