RBS pays homage to Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar on his 128th birth anniversary

Hyderabad: MA Mujeeb, National Convener Rashtriya Bahujan Sena (RBS) on Sunday paid homage to Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar on his 128th birth anniversary. Calling Ambedkar an icon of India and chief architect of the Constitution, Mujeeb remarked that he worked against Manuwadi system, waged a life-long struggle for a modern India free of caste and other prejudices. He added that Ambedkar worked throughout his life to ensure equal rights for women and weaker sections.

Mujeeb said “Ambedkar is an inspiration to crores of Bahujans the OBSCs, SCs, STs, Minorities. It is not necessary for a person to born in a rich family. In India, a person born in a poor family can also dream of big things and can achieve them.” Nobody except Ambedkar faced the caste discrimination, Mujeeb added.

Congress also remembered Dr Ambedkar with Nitin Raut, Chairman of SC Department of the party, issuing a press release paying homage to Dr Ambedkar and praising his works.

Dr Ambedkar was born on April 14, 1891 in Mhow (now in Madhya Pradesh). The town is now known as Dr. Ambedkar Nagar. Dr Ambedkar was the 14th and the last child of his parents.

Dr Ambedkar has the highest number of statues in the world. His first statue was built in Kolhapur city in 1950. He is the only Indian whose statue is attached with Karl Marx in the London Museum. Dr Ambedkar’s birth anniversary is celebrated in different parts of the world. Ambedkar’s statue was pulled down in Telangana by TS employees. RBS demanded CM KCR’s resignation by taking responsibilities for hurting SCs, STs and other Bahujan

Dr Ambedkar passed away on December 6, 1956, in New Delhi. He was posthumously conferred with Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian award, in 1990.
