"In our country three members of the same family received Bharat Ratna. The Congress never gave Bharat Ratna to Ambedkar. This happened only when the BJP came to power."
Lakhimpur Kheri -, April 14 - BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi Monday accused the Congress of disrespecting the iconic B.R. Ambedkar.

Addressing an election rally here on Ambedkar Jayanti, Modi also accused Congress president Sonia Gandhi of choking Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

The Congress is continuously disrespecting and insulting Ambedkar, one of the key architects of the constitution.

It is unfortunate that - Rahul Gandhi does not know anything about the country's history and tradition, Modi said. He cannot look beyond his own family.

Babasaheb Ambedkarji gave us so much but due to the - family politics, Shehzadeji, you all never let what he envisioned to become a reality, Modi said, addressing Rahul Gandhi the way he usually does.

In our country three members of the same family received Bharat Ratna. The Congress never gave Bharat Ratna to Ambedkar. This happened only when the BJP came to power.
