Narendra Modi pays tribute to BR Ambedkar

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday inaugurated the Ambedkar International Centre in Delhi.

Dr Ambedkar passed away on this day in 1956 at the age of 65.

"Baba Saheb's contribution to nation building is very important, there had been attempts to undermine his role, but such attempts were unsuccessful", he said.

Modi further said that the Central government was developing places related to Ambedkar's life as pilgrimage sites.

Without taking any names, Modi said a particular "family" wanted to erase Ambedkar's role but the architect of the Indian constitution has remained influential. He was speaking after inaugurating Dr. Ambedkar International Centre in Delhi.
