Republican Party of India chief Ramdas Athawale reiterated the resolve
of his party to join hands with the Shiv Sena in a party rally held at
Somaiya grounds on Sunday. "We too have given much to you," said
Athawale, referring to the Congress-NCP alliance. "The RPI workers
will not be the slave of
any political parties in future," he added.

Athawale told a party rally on Sunday that the Congress did not have
any moral right to use Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar's name for political
gain, responding to allegations of his joining the Sena-BJP for
similar reasons.

The Dalit leader, who was a minister in the Congress-Nationalist
Congress Party state governments and later an alliance-sponsored Lok
Sabha member, said he wanted to work with the Sena-BJP to put up a
joint fight against the state and Centre governments.
