CONG NOT KEEN TO TAKE ON RSS, SAYS PRAKASH AMBEDKAR

MUMBAI : The Congress party is clearly not interested into taking on the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and hence there are chances that we may go into an alliance with the Congress party said Bharip Bahujan Mahasangh (BBM) chief Prakash Ambedkar grandson of Bharat Ratna Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar. He was speaking to newsmen in Palghar, where he addressed a rally on Monday afternoon. The All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi, MP from Hyderabad who was also to attend the rally chose to skip the same, as no reason were given for his absence.

 The Congress  has not given any strong plans as to how to take on the RSS so as to bring in the framework of the Constitution,said Ambedkar. India follows the Constitution headed by the President of India, and the RSS runs a parallel Contitution, which is anti national,said Ambedkar. But the Congress is going slow on the same, and hence it is a bleak possibility that BBM will allign with the Congress,said Ambedkar, and if the alliance is in place, then the BBM will fight the Palghar Lok Sabha seat,said Ambedkar. We have formed the Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi (VBA) comprising of AIMIM and other parties, but the CPI(M) is also silent on joining us, said Ambedkar. We have asked for 12 seats in the State, as we can get the votes of the Agri, Koli Bhandary and other communities, if the Congress alliance takes place, as our main opposition is the BJP, who cannot win the 12 percent Dhangar votes in the State, and hence we have strong chance to win the LS seats, said Ambedkar. 

PRIYANKA'S ENTRY IN CONGRESS IS WRONG TIMING

 

The entry of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra in the mainstream Congress politics is ill timed, as it will be difficult at this juncture for the party to regain its lost mandate, said Ambedkar.

  DEMAND FOR MARINE UNIVERSITY

 

We want a Marine University in the Konkan region, so that skill development of the fishing community can be developed,said Ambedkar. There are 30 per cent fishermen in the coastal region of the State, and we want to tap their talent in the construction of  boat making and other skills,said Ambedkar.With the introduction of the Marine University, local fishermen can sell indigienous made boats, as local fishermen from the Koli community are expert in constructing wooden fishing boats, said Ambedkar.
