“Dalit leaders whom Congress and NCP have shown the door are now talking about the republican unity. I fear whether this unity will last till assembly elections,” he told a convention of party activists here.
Dalit leaders are talking about unity, but they have not yet dissolved their groups, he said.
“They asked me to join them, but I am not going to do that until they all dissolve their groups and send a letter to that effect to election commission,” Ambedkar said.
Even if they come on a single platform, they have not decided who will lead them, he said.
“Will they be able to give leadership to republican population?” he asked.
