Ambedkar, Owaisi address joint rally


Press Trust of India  |  Aurangabad (Maha) 

AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi and Bharip Bahujan Mahasangh leader Prakash Ambedkar shared the stage here Tuesday for the first time after announcing a tie-up for the Lok Sabha and Assembly polls.

All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Owaisi said at the joint rally that the two parties want "freedom" from the Narendra Modi government, as the followers of the prime minister's ideology have committed "atrocities" on Dalits and the minorities.

Ambedkar, a prominet Dalit leader and grandson of Dr B R Ambedkar, called for increasing feelings of brotherhood among communities.

Without naming anyone, Owaisi said the head of a prominent political party in Maharashtra is talking about saving the Constitution, but in fact he is trying to save his nephew, who is facing allegations of corruption.

He was apparently referring to NCP chief Sharad Pawar, who had in January this year led 'Save the Constitution' march of opposition parties in Maharashtra.
