Politics in Chhattisgarh seemed to be taking an ominous turn when the great-grandson of the architect of India constitution Dr. BR Ambedkar came calling on former CM of the state and founder of Janta Congress Chhattisgarh Ajit jogi. It was almost immediately linked with the coming Assembly elections pegged at the end of this tear.
This meeting of Ajit Jogi and Prakash Ambedkar has at once given rise to an intense debate on the shape of things going to emerge in near future. Since Prakash Ambedkar has for long been considered to be an advocate of Dalit and backward welfare and has also maintained a steady relationship with all poilitical parties committed to the cause of dalit and backward welfare, the meeting is seen as a tacit move from Ajit jogi to make a dent upon this class of voters.
While it was not immediately known about what transpireds between the two leaders of the downtrodden segments of indian society, it was largely conjectured to have something to do with Ajit jogi’s long overtures towards inching closer to the former UP CM Mayavati’s Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP). Those in the know, said that Ajit jogi could definitely make quite an an impression on state poilitics if he could ensure Mayavati’s support in the run-up to the coming polls.
Political conjecturs apart, after meeting jogi, Prakash Ambedkar alleged that the present ruling dispenstion at the center was trying to destruct ans deconstruct the constitution of India written by Dr. BR Ambedkar. The government is out to create an environment in the entire country, that could deprive communities, traditionally downrodden, from receiving social justice. Prakash Ambedkar feared that such an effort, if pushe hard, could give birth to anarchic siotuations in the coutry.
Prakash Ambedkar also claimed that this government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is continuously trying to push the nation to the verge of a civil war. He alleged that some organisations, supported by this government is trying to disturb the social fabric of india by creating riot-like situqations.
Replying to a question from journalists, Prakash Ambedkar claimed that his meeting with Jogi was focussed completely on these issues. No politics was discussed between them.>
