Ambedkar said no party has the guts to remove Sc/ST reservation in Lok Sabha and Assemblies at present because of 'vote bank politics' and fear of losing power.
While addressing an election rally at Digras in Maharashtra's Yavatmal district, Ambedkar said he would jail the EC for two days if voted to power.
Prakash Ambedkar, the grandson of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar, is contesting the upcoming Lok Sabha election from Solapur and Akola constituencies in Maharashtra as a candidate of Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi (VBA).
The allegations made by Congress president Rahul Gandhi (in Rafale issue) were opposed by NCP president Sharad Pawar.
The Pune police had on Tuesday raided the homes of prominent Left-wing activists in several states and arrested five of them.
Prakash Ambedkar, the grandson of Dr B R Ambedkar on Monday held the Central Government and the Supreme Court responsible for the violent protests that erupted during the nationwide Bandh.
"This is a wrong decision by the BJP-RSS. They are doing this only for political gain. He is addressed as Babasaheb in Karnataka and Maharashtra and as Baba Bhimrao in the north."
" It is the government's responsibility to act and if not checked immediately, it (violence against Dalits) may spread to the other states."
Ambedkar had called for Maharashtra bandh to protest the state government's "failure" to stop the violence at Bhima Koregaon village in Pune district two days ago.
The CPI(M) have called upon "all democratic and secular minded people in the state to extend their full support" to the Bandh on January 3.
He said Maharashtra Democratic Front, Maharashtra Left Front, besides 250 organisations, have supported tomorrow's shutdown.
"You have to root out those who want to uproot you,” says Ambedkar
