Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Saturday accused the Congress of trying to suppress Babasaheb Ambedkar due to fear of being overshadowed by a Dalit leader.

Addressing a meeting of BJP SC/ST wing in Goa on Saturday, Manohar Parrikar said the Congress feared that the Dalit leader would overshadow everyone in the party.

“They were afraid that his intelligence, if it came to the fore then he would have swallowed all Congress leaders. Therefore the Congress always tried to banish him in the background,” he said.

He further urged that everyone should follow Ambedkar and added that there are many people in the country who have mastered the art of twisting things.

“Everyone should emulate Babasaheb Ambedkar, because currently in our country there are many people who are experts at twisting things,” he said.
