PM Narendra Modi attacks Congress, says it cashed in on Ambedkar's name

"Attempts to erase Baba Saheb Ambedkar's role failed, he has been more influential in the minds of people, much more than the family for which all this was done", he said. Vice President M Venkiah Naidu, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Speaker of the Lok Sabha Sumitra Mahajan also offered tributes to the Father of the Indian Constitution.

Union Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment Thawar Chand Gehlot, Minister of State Ramdas Athawale and Union Sports and Youth Affairs Minister Vijay Goel and other dignitaries were present on the occasion.

PM Modi added that the government had developed five places related to Baba Saheb Ambedkar into pilgrimage spots.

Ambedkar International Centre, a sprawling building in the government district, will mark the "arrival" of the Dalit icon in the heart of the capital on Thursday.

The Prime Minister said the country was indebted to Ambedkar for his contributions to nation-building.

The Centre has come up at 15 Janpath in the national capital. He had laid the foundation stone of the centre in 2015. "Till now, some 9.75 crore loan (applications) have been accepted and people have been given credits worth over Rs 4 lakh crore", Modi said.

Quoting from Dr. Ambedkar's address to the Constituent Assembly in December 1946, the Prime Minister said despite his struggles, Dr. Ambedkar had an inspirational vision for the nation to overcome its problems. He said the Union Government is making every effort to complete schemes and projects within their intended duration, and the Dr. Ambedkar International Centre represents one illustration of this.

The Prime Minister also mentioned programmes were taking off the ground either on time or ahead of the deadline.
