Mumbai: Congress in Maharashtra today accused the state government of "dilly-dallying" the acquisition of the Indu Mill land here for Babasaheb Ambedkar's memorial and alleged it was indulging in politics in the name of the architect of Indian Constitution.

The National Textile Corporation (NTC) is ready to hand over the Indu Mill land. However, BJP-led government in Maharastra is dilly-dallying and hasn't completed the acquisition process, leader of Opposition in Maharashtra Assembly Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil said.

According to him, "the BJP-led state government is indulging in politics in the name of Ambedkar".

"The Prime Minister performed 'bhumipujan' of the land. However, it is yet to be acquired by the state government," Patil told reporters.

NTC is willing to hand over the land but in absence of any concrete action on part of the state government, the acquisition hasn't taken place yet, he claimed.
