Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi chief and senior leader Prakash Ambedkar fired a salvo against the NDA government and questioned the role of Union Minister for Transport, Shipping and Ganga Rejuvenation, Nitin Gadkari and his silence in Cabinet which was seized of Intelligence inputs much before the attack on CRPF convoy in Pulwama.
Ambedkar who is contesting from Solapur and Akola citing intelligence inputs said even after specific information, the Government failed to check and the matter was discussed in the Union Cabinet but no measures were taken to thwart the terror attack on CRPF Jawans, Ambedkar alleged at a press conference, here today.
He posed a question to Gadkari who is contesting from Nagpur Lok Sabha constituency that was he part of the Cabinet discussion Ambedkar said the intelligence input was loud and clear that +before occupying your place of deployment please, sanitize the area properly as there are inputs of use of IED (improvised explosive device.
Further attacking Central government, Ambedkar said the CRPF convoy should have been of less impact to minimize the impact of attack. Ambedkar even dragged the RSS chief Mohan Bhawar in the negligence of intelligence inputs saying he is part of the process and has close proximity with government.
To a question, Ambedkar said if he wins both seats he would decide which to vacate. He wanted to know how come, NCP top leader Praful Patel withdrew from the race in Bhandara-Gondia Lok Sabha constituency and fielded Nana Panchbudhe
