Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Monday nobody can snatch the right to reservation from Dalits as he praised BR Ambedkar’s legacy during an event to lay the foundation stone of a memorial for him.
“Nothing has ever happened to the reservation for Dalits, tribals, where we are in power but still this lie is spread to mislead,” Moid said. “When Vajpayee ji became the PM, certain sections started saying reservation will go. He was PM for two terms nothing of that sort happened,” he added.
Maintaining that his government is trying to realise Ambedkar’s dreams by providing electricity in 18,000 villages, he said, “When in these villages you get power supply, do not give credit to Modi (me). Give credit to Ambedkar.”
“These all are his ideas and only in between some people sabtoaged these works,” he said, in a veiled cricticism of Congress. He lamented that even after 60 years some villages in India remain in darkness.
“Babasaheb was the voice of the marginalised,” the prime minister said, adding that the founding father of the Indian Constitution should not be seen as a leader of any caste.
“Rather he was a protector of all human values,” Modi said.
