Congress to mark Ambedkar jayanti with 'samvidhan bachao abhiyan'

As the first Minister of Law and Justice in Independent India, Ambedkar was the principal architect of the Indian Constitution. Popularly known as Babasaheb, he was an Indian jurist, economist, politician and social reformer who inspired the Dalit Buddhist Movement and campaigned against social discrimination against untouchables and also supported the rights of women and labour.

India's Permanent Mission to the United Nations had organised a special event titled "Leaving No One Behind" at the United Nations yesterday to celebrate Ambedkar's 127th birth anniversary.

However, did you know that Dr Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar, wanted to burn the constitution if it did not take into consideration the welfare of the minorities in India. He said, it is important to appreciate Dr Ambedkar's personality and message in all its dimensions, and not to compartmentalise, as people often do.

Rao said Ambedkar recognised the difference between India and other countries and accordingly prepared plans for the country's future. He will pay his tributes to the Babasaheb at his memorial in Mhow and grace a function being organised on his 127th birth anniversary.
