Congress accuses Hindutva outfits of triggering Maharashtra clashes

They are trying to drive a wedge between the Marathas and Dalits in Maharashtra,” Kharge alleged. The minister’s response infuriated the Congress MPs who trooped into the Well of the House and shouted slogans like ‘Stop humiliating Babasaheb Ambedkar’, ‘stop dividing the country’ and ‘PM speak up’. Earlier, when BJP MPs tried to disrupt Kharge’s speech, the Congress leader even tore some papers and voiced anguish over not being able to put across his point of view.
