Attempts to undermine Ambedkar's role failed : PM Modi”

Paying tribute to the stalwart, he said that attempts made to erase Baba Saheb Ambedkar's role failed. Vice President M Venkiah Naidu, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Speaker of the Lok Sabha Sumitra Mahajan also offered tributes to the Father of the Indian Constitution. He had laid the foundation stone of the centre in 2015.

"The centre will prove to be an inspiration for the promotion of the thoughts and teachings of Dr Ambedkar".

"Baba Saheb Ambedkar's contribution to nation building is very important, there had been attempts to undermine his role, but such attempts were unsuccessful", he said after inaugurating the Dr. Ambedkar International Centre For Socio-Economic Transformation (DAICSET), a day after the Dalit icon's 61st death anniversary. He was speaking after inaugurating Dr. Ambedkar International Centre in Delhi.

Ambedkar International Centre, a sprawling building in the government district, will mark the "arrival" of the Dalit icon in the heart of the capital on Thursday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his message on the occasion said, "I bow to Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar on his Mahaparinirvan Diwas", and added that he had felt extremely blessed when he had prayed at Chaitya Bhoomi in Mumbai.

Modi also said the government had realized Baba Saheb's dream of an inclusive India that gives equal opportunities to every citizen irrespective of caste, creed and faith.

He said the Congress had planned the centre in 1992 but it was only now during the BJP's tenure that work was completed.

"We had said that in one year we will build toilets for girls in all government schools, we have already constructed over 4 lakh such facilities".
