Ram Das Athaule, who came out in support of Sameer Wankhede, told NCB officer Dalit, gave this warning to Nawab Malik.
Now Union Minister Ram Das Athaula has joined Sameer Wankhede, zonal head of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), which is investigating the Mumbai drug case, and NCP leader Nawab Malik, a minister in the Adu Thackeray government. Sameer Wankhede’s father and wife met Union Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment Ram Das Athaula in Mumbai on Sunday. After the meeting, Athaula said, “Samir Wankhede is a Dalit, so he is being harassed.” Nawab Malik, stop making false accusations against yourself. On behalf of RPI, I would like to ask Nawab Malik to stop the conspiracy to defame Sameer Wankhede and his family. If Nawab Malik says that Samir is a Muslim then they are accusing him of being a Muslim? The Republican Party stands with them. Samir will not be harmed.
Sameer Wankhede’s father Gyan Dev Wankhede said after meeting Ram Das Athaula, Nawab Malik says that we have taken away the right of a Dalit. We are Dalits ourselves. If you have something to say, go to court. Just because my son arrested your son-in-law, you are making accusations. My son or I never converted, the accusations are false.
Sameer Wankhede’s wife Kranti Redkar said
“We came here today and met the minister,” said Kranti Redkar, wife of Sameer Wankhede and a Marathi actress. “It’s unfortunate,” he said. He stands by us because he cares for every Dalit. All the allegations of Nawab Malik so far have been proved false.
