Party leaders remember Ambedkar
NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said that Bharat Ratna Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar was a staunch advocate of equality and social justice. He was speaking after paying floral tributes on the occasion of 128th birth anniversary of Ambedkar in a function organized at Delhi Vidhan Sabha.
Kejriwal further stated that Baba Saheb was the chief architect of the Indian constitution, which is unique in the world.
Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel, Delhi Social Welfare Minister Rajender Pal Gautam and MLAs, were also present on this occasion.
Delhi Congress president Sheila Dikshit also offered floral tribute to Bharat Ratna Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar, at a function organized by the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee's SC Department.
On this occasion, Delhi BJP President Manoj Tiwari said that the views being presented by the political parties these days are quite different from the views of Baba Sahab.
"The purpose of Baba Sahab was not class war but social harmony, politics of coordination and right to education and social justice. He tried his best for it. Baba Sahab was so much highly educated person of his time that he could have joined service like IAS, not only this he could have secured highest post in London but he pledged to ensure justice for the last man in the queue in India itself.
Tiwari said that Baba Sahab was of the view that everybody has equal rights over the opportunities available in the country. "Everybody should get equal opportunity to avail it. Baba Sahab tried his best in his entire life for it. He suffered injustice himself with his family but he worked for ensuring justice to the people," he said.
