As per reports, Rajinikanth, a social worker in Akola had put up a message on WhatsApp, which had gone viral.
Prakash Ambedkar is Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar’s grandson and is the chairperson of Bharipa Bahujan Mahasangh (BBM). Earlier this month a case had been registered against him for threatening the Election Commission under sections 503, 506, and 189 of the IPC for criminal intimidation and threat of injury to a public servant.
Addressing a rally, Ambedkar had said that he would jail the EC officials for two days, for prohibiting discussion about the Pulwama attack, if voted to power. He had furthered that, we are told to not talk about Pulwama but he would like to know why we shouldn’t talk about it when the constitution permits us to say what we want.
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.
Ambedkar had also been caught threatening 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.
