Reacting sharply on the outburst of senior Akali leader and Chief Parliamentary Secretary (CPS), Virsa Singh Valtoha against Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar for spreading castism, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today said that Valtoha should immediately tender his apology for undermining the father of the constitution.Addressing a press conference here today, Head of the SC/ST wing of AAP, Dev Mann today termed the ‘outburst’ of Valtoha against Dr Ambedkar as highly ‘condemnable and deplorable’ said that he (Valtoha) owes an apology from entire Dalit samaj, as he not only only tried to undermine Dr Ambedkar, but the entire community.Mann said that Valtoha has hurt the sentiments of entire dalit community and Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal should explain whether he supports the views of Valtoha or he would immediately sack Valtoha for such a shameful act.“If Valtoha will not submit his apology, AAP is ready to launch an extensive agitation in entire state”, Mann announced.Valtoha must know that Dr Ambedkar’s work for the upliftment of the dalits was commendable and he was the person, who kept ample provisions in the Indian constitutions for the concerns and causes of Dalits. 

Mann said.Mann was accompanying with General Secretary of SC/ST wing Santokh Singh Salana, Vice President Mandeep Kaur, Zonal In-Charge Varinder Kumar and Dr Balbir Singh, Pradeep Joshan, Kripal Saini, Savender Dhananya, Lalit Kumar and Maninder Singh Bhatto.It is pertinent to mention here that the said malicious statement was made by Valtoha during a TV debate at Amritsar yesterday, in the presence of a large gathering as audience.Valtoha when confronted by a member from the audience that Akali's are not living up to the slogan of Guru's "Manas ki Jaat sabhi ek hi pehchanbo" or equality of human beings, Valtoha squarely held Dr. Ambedkar responsible for fanning castism in India through reservation for different categories of scheduled castes.The audience reacted very sharply to his defamatory remarks and pandemonium prevailed, due to which the TV anchor had to halt the proceedings of the debate. Raj Kumar Verka MLA, AAP leader Major Singh and a BSP leader were present in the said debate. ( http://punjabexpressnews.com/Punjab/virsa-singh-balthoa )
