NEW DELHI: Ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, Rural Development and Panchayat Raj Minister Priyank Kharge on Thursday lashed out at Kalaburagi MP Umesh G Jadhav and said that he has received a threat letter saying that the Dalits must not indulge in politics.

“The Kalaburagi MP has been saying that there should be free and fair elections in Kalaburagi. I am not sure what he means by free and fair election and collapse of law and order in Kalaburagi”, he said.

Lashing out at the BJP for ‘misusing’ central agencies, he said, “When the entire CBI, ED, IT and the EC are with them, I don’t know what his apprehensions are.”

“And more importantly, recently, again I have received a threatening letter from ‘Manuwadis’ saying that Dalits should not be speaking out this loud. Dalits should not enter politics and Dalits should not climb the ladder of society. And if you continue to speak out we will have to ensure that we encounter you”, he added.

The Congress leader further stated about taking the help of the police in this regard. “An FIR has been lodged in the case”, he added. (ANI)
