Prakash Ambedkar, the chief of Bharipa Bahujan Mahasangh claims that Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat possesses illegally weapons and also demanded his arrest under the Arms Act, reported India Today,
In a protest rally against the RSS in Mumbai, Ambedkar speaking to the party workers said, along with its chief Bhagwat, the organisation should also be booked for possessing such weapons.
“We have an Arms Act in the country which prevents anyone from possessing weapons. The RSS people are found possessing weapons. Photographs of Bhagwat and (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi with weapons like AK 47, multi-firing guns, shoulder to fire rockets etc have been published. I have asked the government to explain why no action is being taken against him”, said Ambedkar.
Prakash Ambedkar went on to demand Maharastra government to charge Bhagwat under the MCOCA (Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act), for possessing illegal weapons and asked the government to confiscate weapons from the RSS.
“They say the weapons are being worshipped on the auspicious day of Dussehra. If I want to worship a tank or a combat aircraft on such occasion would the government permit me to do that? If an action can be taken against a common man for possessing even the country-made crude weapons, similar action needs to be taken against Bhagwat”, said Ambedkar as per reports.
Prakash, the grandson of BR Ambedkar, heads a Dalit political outfit called Bharipa Bahujan Mahasangh in Maharastra and intends to contest in the upcoming elections to be held in the state. Ambedkar, a controversial man has been caught live threatening a TimesNow journalist, Anand Narasimhan after his channel had exposed the role of Urban Naxals in creating unrest in the country. Agitated by this expose, Prakash Ambedkar had abused the journo and warned him of consequences once the present government loses power.
