In the video aired by Times Now, Prakash Ambedkar, who is the grandson of BR Ambedkar, is seen hurling abuses and issuing threats to Anand Narasimhan. Ambedkar first warns to stop ‘these ongoing thing’ meaning the channel’s report regarding the explosive letter that was accessed by them and threatens Anand using foul language that the government will change in 6 months and then he can harm Anand.
Times Now had yesterday aired a long exclusive report on a letter accessed by them. The letter, allegedly written by a Maoist activist to Rona Wilson, stated that Congress senior leadership will provide all the legal and financial help to exploit the Dalit-Bramhin divide and instigate ‘chaos’ all across the country to stop the Modi Juggernaut in 2019.
The letter hailed Jignesh Mewani, Umar Khalid as ‘young fighters’ and allegedly added that with the help of Prakash Ambedkar, the trio will help to consolidate Dalit struggles all across the country in a few years. The letter had also stated about using the death of a young man to exploit their agenda of violence further.
The letter was allegedly seized by the Maharashtra Police among the documents and laptops/mobiles seized from Rona Wilson’s house. The letter was dated 2nd January and the police reportedly believe that it is an appreciation letter after orchestration of Bhima Koregaon Violence the day before.
Rona Wilson, Surendra Gadling, Sudhir Dhawle, Professor Shoma Sen and Mahesh Raut were arrested by Maharashtra Police yesterday with alleged links to the Bhima Koregaon violence. All of them are accused of having links to Maoists.
