Shame! Congress tortured Dr Ambedkar in his lifetime, but now misuse his name for Dalit votes!

The standards of the Congress Party are all-time low! If Emergency was their lowest point while in rule, their stinking Caste based politics is the lowest possible point while in opposition! Just for their political conspiracy to achieve power by hook or crook, Congress is creating riots after riots! India will never forgive them for their anti-national acts! Maharashtrians will never forgive them for the New Year gift Congress has given them by burning Maharashtra over fake issue! The way 200 year old Bhima Koregaon war anniversary was used to turn it into anti-BJP riot was utterly disgusting. The way they use Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar’s name for their political benefit is extremely shameful.

Dalits comprise of 25% votes. Hence Congress is playing their ‘Ambedkar card’ without a trace of remorse. During their regime of 60 years, Congress never ever gave Dr Ambedkar his due by keeping his legacy alive. All his visionary writings have been kept hidden from public. None of the books on Ambedkar’s writings was published by Congress in sixty years. It is PM Modi, who has launched a Village Self Governance Campaign at Babasaheb’s birthplace Mhaw. PM Modi also laid the foundation stone for Ambedkar National Memorial at 26, Alipur Road in Delhi which was the last home of Dr Ambedkar.

Congress Party, the self-acclaimed Messiah of Dalits, is squirming uneasily by PM Modi’s attention to the Icon of Dalits , Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar. Today, Congress tries to cash on Babasaheb Ambedkar’s popularity. But during the political career of Babasaheb Ambedkar, Congress treated him extremely inappropriately. As stated by Ambedkar himself in during his Constituent Assembly address in November 1949, Nehru wanted him out of Constituent Assembly. Due to Mahatma Gandhi’s intervention, Nehru had to make concessions to Ambedkar’s presence in the Constituent Assembly.

Dr Ambedkar’s Resignation Letter dated September 27th, 1951 is a detailed write-up of the injustice inflicted upon him by Nehru and Congress Party. Dr Ambedkar wanted Nehru to introduce ‘Hindu Code Bill’. But Nehru was not in favor of reforming Hinduism and turned his back on it. The Hindu Code Bill of Dr Ambedkar was visionary and modern. He felt it the duty of elected members to create awareness in the newly independent country through Law. His sole aim to enter politics was to uplift people of India. He believed that if the ills present in the society are removed, the country will progress on its own. But Nehru off-handedly turned down the ‘Hindu Code Bill’ by Ambedkar saying that the Nation was not ready for his modern thoughts on the issue of giving rights to Hindu girls in family property.

Dr Ambedkar clearly stated in his resignation letter that his personal equation with then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru was hostile. Dr Ambedkar was in disagreement with Nehru’s Foreign Policy that turned every friendly Nation in the world as our enemy. We became friendless in just four years span. Dr Ambedkar also objected to Nenru’s policy towards Pakistan as self-defeating. History is the proof of Nehru’s POK blunder. He also raised his voice for focusing on East Bengal for the alarming situations of unrest. His fore sightedness was ignored with cold shoulder by Nehru Government. In the wake of the drastically collapsed demography of Hindus in Bangladesh in present times, one might wish Dr Ambedkar’s prophecy was paid heed to by Nehru Government.

There was a lack of trust on Nehru’s part that led to the deprivation of plum posts, projects and portfolios for Dr Ambedkar. So much so that Dr Ambedkar was even kept out of Economics Affairs Committee though he was a learned in the branch of Economics and Finance. The ill treatment by Nehru and Congress was getting unbearable for Dr Ambedkar. At last, Ambedkar lost hopes and resigned. Thus, The genius Architect of Indian Constitution was humiliated and disposed of by someone who has marked Indian History with his epic political blunders.

It’s the epitome of shamelessness of Congress Party to boast about Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar after all the injustice done to him. It’s disheartening to see the Congress creating Caste related riots in BJP ruled states, one after the other. It’s a depressing fact that after allowing this oldest party to rule and squeeze our India for 60 years, they are now taking revenge on us for electing PM Modi. On Global map, our India seems to be making a noticeable mark, be it in economy, FDI or Ease of doing business! But India will never forgive Congress for taking India backwards by two centuries by raking up forgotten caste injustices of past!

In the times when the younger generation wants caste-based reservation system to be abolished, Congress is raking up new reservation issues with Jaats, Patidars, Marathas, Dalits and Lingayats as per their election mode. In spite of playing the caste politics, Congress is Secular while PM Modi, whose Mantra is ‘Sab ka saath, sab ka vikaas’ is Communal!
