BJP eroding Ambedkar's legacy: Congress

Later on Sunday, the Congress dismissed Javadekar's call for action against Mir, saying it was his demand that pushed the investigation into the case initially.

Raking up the 2016 Nirbhaya gang rape, and the incidents of atrocities against Dalits in Mirchpur, during the Congress-led UPA government, Javadekar slammed shot at Gandhi, " Why did you not take out a candle march then?" "Local population believe that investigation is motivated, the real culprit is being let go and they're trying to fulfil their political criteria".

Mir's remarks came after the BJP this morning played a video purportedly showing him calling the police probe into the rape and killing of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua as motivated and defending the public protests against it.

"Hence, the basic issue is not the correlation of the Left with the Congress party, but the leadership role of it in the vast alliance against the BJP, which is controlled by the fascistic RSS", Krishnaprasad has written in the article. We want to ask Rahulji, our two ministers had resigned for joining the rallies in support of the rape accused.

Addressing reporters, former Union Minister Kumari Selja also charged the Prime Minister with doing politics over the legacy of the Dalit icon. Why are you silent? Party leaders said women were not safe in today's environment as incidence of crimes against the fairer sex had shown a sharp rise.

Javadekar and Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari also referred to an incident, in which some people, sporting saffron "gamcha" and wielding swords, raised provocative slogans in front of a mosque here during a Ram Navami procession. He said that the Congress was trying to defame the BJP.

Claiming that they were Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) workers, Tiwari alleged that they wanted to instigate riots and blame the BJP for the same.
