Nation pays rich tribute to Dr Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar on 127th birth anniversary

Quoting "Ambedkar ki dincharya" - a book by Baba Saheb's secretary - Darapuri said he was also fond of good food and used to cook for his friends and guests.

Leader of the Opposition N. Rangasamy, former Speaker V. Sabapathy and AINRC MLAs also paid floral tributes to the statue.

President Ram Nath Kovind on Saturday received the first copy of the book Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar: Vyakti Nahin Sankalp from Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu, who formally released it at a function held at Rashtrapati Bhavan.

Chief Minister said that Baba Saheb empowered weaker sections with fundamental rights through Constitution and showed them the way to live and grow with self-respect.

Mr Kovind said the best tribute to him will be to build a just, egalitarian and developed India and an India that lives up to the republican ethic that Dr Ambedkar shaped and defined for people and for future generations. The constitution ensures equality for all citizens and representation for all castes.

Addressing the event, Adityanath said that the BJP government has worked tirelessly for the upliftment of Dalits. Ambedkar had a different perspective about freedom and often asked "Freedom for Whom". The Prime Minister said special courts are being set up for an urgent hearing of cases involving atrocities on SCs and STs.

Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayansamy, his cabinet colleagues, legislators and senior officials of the territorial administration among others garlanded the Ambedkar statue inside the Bharathi park in front of the Legislative Assembly to mark the occasion.
