Rahul insulting Ambedkar by taking credit for laws: Modi
On the 123rd birth anniversary of B R Ambedkar, Narendra Modi on Monday attacked Rahul Gandhi saying he was "insulting" the chief architect of the Constitution by taking credit for enacting laws and giving rights to the people.

On the 123rd birth anniversary of B R Ambedkar, Narendra Modi on Monday attacked Rahul Gandhi saying he was "insulting" the chief architect of the Constitution by taking credit for enacting laws and giving rights to the people.

"It is unfortunate that these days Congress party's 'shehzaade' (Rahul Gandhi), I don't know why, enjoys humiliating Baba Saheb Ambedkar by repeatedly saying that Congress has given this right or that right. All the rights and laws have been given to us by Ambedkar," he said.

"If someone claims that he has given any right or law for the country, then he is insulting Ambedkar. Those who do not know the Constitution, they are today taking credit for these things due to political reasons," the BJP Prime Ministerial candidate said.

Modi's comments have come at a time when Rahul Gandhi and Congress have claimed that the UPA government has given the Right to Information, Right to Education and Right to Food to the people in the country.

Ambedkar was born on this day in 1891 in the town of Mhow in Madhya Pradesh and was independent India's first law minister and principal architect of the Constitution of India.
