PM Narendra Modi remembers his caste only during polls, says Prakash Ambedkar
Bahujan Vanchit Aghadi leader Prakash Ambedkar slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday for talking about his caste. Ambedkar was speaking at a campaign rally for Sharad Wankhede, Vanchit Aghadi candidate from Jalna, here. Two days ago, at a rally at Akluj in Maharashtra, Modi targeted Rahul Gandhi on his “why are all thieves named Modi” remark, saying the Congress chief, by making the jibe, had maligned the backward community he hails from. Ambedkar said that “Modi remembers his caste only during the election”.
The prime minister should note that backward class students were not receiving their scholarship money under his rule, the Dalit leader said. Ambedkar also hit out at state Congress chief Ashok Chavan. The talks between the state Congress and Ambedkar for a pre-poll alliance had not borne fruit.
