President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid homage to Dalit social reformer and father of the Indian Constitution Dr BR Ambedkar on his 128th birth anniversary, also known as Ambedkar Jayanti or Bhim Jayanti. A social reformer, economist and jurist, BR Ambedkar was the force behind the Dalit Buddhist Movement in India.

“I pay my homage to the chief architect of Indian Constitution and a person who has worked for social justice – Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar -on his birth anniversary. Jai Hind!” Prime Minister Modi tweeted in Hindi along with a video.

Dr BR Ambedkar played a key role in the formation of Reserve Bank of India – the country’s central banking institution.

“Homage to Dr B.R. Ambedkar on his birth anniversary. An icon of our nation, and Chief Architect of the Constitution, Dr Ambedkar waged a life-long struggle for a modern India free of caste and other prejudices, ensuring equal rights for women and weaker sections,” President Kovind tweeted on Ambedkar Jayanti, after which he paid floral tributes at Parliament House Lawns in New Delhi.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Ambedkar Jayanti tweeted: “I bow to Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar on his Jayanti today. Babasaheb’s vision for the uplift of the poor and downtrodden inspires us to work for the welfare and  empowerment of weaker sections. The nation will remain indebted to Babasaheb for his immense contribution.”

Congress chief Rahul Gandhi also took to Twitter to remember Babasaheb on Ambedkar Jayanti, who dedicated his life to working for the upliftment of untouchables, women, and labourers.

“On Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar’s jayanti, let us re-dedicate ourselves to the 4 universal values of JUSTICE, LIBERTY, EQUALITY & FRATERNITY enshrined in our Constitution. Those who pay him tributes on this day, while insidiously weakening these values, do his memory disservice,” Gandhi said.

BR Ambedkar was posthumously conferred with Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian award in 1990.

Bahujan Samaj Party leader Mayawati on Ambedkar Jayanti said that by giving a priceless constitutional right of one person-one vote, and the same value for each vote, Baba Saheb sought the mastery key for the upliftment and welfare of Dalits, oppressed, backward and religious minorities. “We have to fulfill that.”
