BBM chairperson Prakash Ambedkar threatens to send election commission to jail for two days if voted to power

The Election Commission taking note of Ambedkar's remark has asked the District election officer to submit a report on the same

Bharipa Bahujan Mahasangh (BBM) chairperson, Prakash Ambedkar has stirred a controversy by passing an outrageous remark against the Election Commission. Addressing a rally in Yavatmal, Ambedkar said that he would jail the EC officials for two days if voted to power.

The Election Commission of India is an autonomous constitutional authority responsible for administering election processes in India. The commission has the powers under the Constitution, to act in an appropriate manner when the enacted laws make insufficient provisions to deal with a given situation in the conduct of an election.

The Election Commission taking note of Ambedkar’s remark has asked the District election officer to submit a report on the same.

Ambedkar had further, addressing the crowd in Yavatmal said that we are told to not talk about Pulwama but I would like to know why we shouldn’t talk about it when the constitution permits us to say what we want.

Prakash Ambedkar, who has tied up with Asaduddin Owaisi’s All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) in Maharashtra, filed his nomination papers from Solapur, the district from where BJP has fielded the Lingayat spiritual leader, Jai Siddheshwar Shivacharya and also from Akola Lok Sabha constituencies as a Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi (VBA) nominee.

Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi (VBA) is an alliance of Bharip Bahujan Mahasangh, Asaduddin Owaisi’s AIMIM and Janata Dal(S) in Maharashtra.

This is, however, not the first time Prakash Ambedkar has meted out such veil attacks. In a similar display of animosity, Ambedkar had in October last year, lashed out at Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat, claiming that he possessed illegal weapons and also demanded his arrest under the Arms Act.

In a protest rally against the RSS in Mumbai, Ambedkar speaking to the party workers had said that along with its chief Bhagwat, the organisation should also be booked for possessing such weapons.

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.
