  • Another Ambedkar statue is vandalised

April 14 (ANI): Remembering Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar on his birth anniversary, renowned filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar on Saturday visited architect of Indian Constitution's house in London.

In the state's Mehsana district, Dalit activists allegedly "cleansed" Ambedkar's statue after Gujarat Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel garlanded it, TV9 Gujarati reported. Singh said that the damaged statue was being replaced with a new one.

He said on the basis of a police Intelligence report about the festival causing possible tension in the area, the committee was asked, in the eleventh hour, to hold the event at an alternative venue.

The UP police planned to monitor and ensure the security of the statues of Dalit icon and father of the Indian Constitution Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar. As per the call, the workers raised slogans as Solanki reached the venue.

Political leaders from different parties and people from different walks of life also paid floral tributes at the statue of Dr B R Ambedkar in the state capital and various places in Odisha.

In Madhya Pradesh, Gwalior-Bhind region, where eight persons died in violent April 2 protests, the administration deployed additional police force and prohibited assembly of four or more people to prevent any untoward incident.

Outside the country, Ambedkar's birth anniversary became a rallying point at the United Nations where a group of Sikhs held a protest against the atrocities against minorities and Dalits in India. It also referenced how Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi had been inspired by the life and message of Dr Ambedkar. Rupani said the government was always committed to protect the rights, given in the Constitution, of any community. He said the country remains indebted to Babasaheb for his efforts towards the making of our Constitution.
