Congress feared Ambedkar's prowess, neglected him: Parrikar

Panaji, Aug 6: Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Saturday accused the Congress of trying to ignore the achievements and intellect of the Constitution's prime architect Babasaheb Ambedkar, because it had feared that he would overshadow everyone else in the party.

"But they were afraid that if his intelligence came to the fore, then it would have overshadowed all Congress leaders. Therefore the Congress always tried to banish him to the background," he said at a meeting of the Bharatiya Janata Party Scheduled Caste morcha meeting held in Porvorim, near here. 


Parrikar also said that people should emulate the qualities of Ambedkar in the true sense and emphasised on the importance of educating children.
