1952, CPI founding member – “spoil your votes but don’t vote Dr. Ambedkar”, Dr Ambedkar lost election


We know your love for Dalits since Dr. Ambedkar’s time. If you have forgotten, let me remind you what CPI founding member, Shripad Amrit Dange, had said during 1952 elections. In his vile call to the voters, he asked to spoil their ballots in the reserved constituency for Central Bombay rather than vote for Dr. Ambedkar. Dr. Ambedkar lost the election and attributed his defeat to communist campaign.
