Parkash Ambedkar accuses PM Modi of ‘shielding’ Maharashtra Hindutva leader

Says PM is like Hitler


Our Correspondent /Mumbai

Dalit leader and the chief of Bharipa Bahujan Mahasangh Prakash Ambedkar on Monday alleged that BJP-led Maharashtra government was not arresting rightwing Hindutva leader Sambhaji Bhide alias ‘Guruji’ because he “enjoys the backing of Prime Minister Narendra Modi”.

Addressing a huge gathering of Dalits and other parties’ activists who took part in the ‘Ealgar Morcha’ here, Ambedkar – the grandson of the B. R. Ambedkar – without mincing words said “it is a well-known fact that Modi considers Bhide as his Guru.”

“We are not interested in fighting with Modi. However, if action is not initiated against Bhide by Maharashtra government, then we know how to deal with it at the appropriate time,” he warned.

Attacking the PM, Ambedkar compared him with German leader Adolf Hitler who he said never listened to anybody.

“Hitler heeded nobody. He functioned according to his whims and ultimately committed suicide. Even Modi conducts himself like Hitler, treats all his cabinet colleagues as prisoners,” he said.

Ambedkar made it clear that everybody will have to bow before the wishes of the people and “we know how to make the Prime Minister or the Chief Minister bend before the masses, or we will expose them”.

“If the law is not implemented, and Bhide is not arrested within eight days, we shall chalk out our future strategy. Why should the law not be equal for everybody? If another Hindutva leader, Milind Ekbote can be arrested, what has prevented Bhide’s arrest since he is the prima accused in the Bhima-Koregaon incidents,” he said.

Earlier, he led a delegation to Fadnavis reiterating his nearly three-month old demand for the arrest of Bhide.

“The CM says the state government cannot arrest him due to lack of evidence. I would like to inform him that there is ample proof against Bhide,” Ambedkar countered.

Ambedkar has also sought the arrest of Maharashtra BJP chief Raosaheb Patil-Danve for his social media comments on the Bhima-Koregaon caste riots.

In a retaliatory development, Bhide’s supporting groups plan to take out processions all over Maharashtra including Mumbai on March 28 to oppose the campaign against him by Dalit groups.

Launching a counter-attack last week, Bhide had blamed Ambedkar and others like Gujarat Dalit leader Jignesh Mevani, JNU leader Umar Khalid and retired Bombay High Court judge Justice B. G. Kolse-Patil for the Bhima-Koregaon incidents.

On March 19, the Shri Shiv Pratishthan leader had demanded their arrests, alleging they had “incited people to indulge in violence and rioting” at their public meeting in Pune on December 31.
A youth was killed during caste-based clashes and protests had erupted across Maharashtra. On January 2, a day after the violent clashes, the Pune police had lodged a case under the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act against Bhide and others.
