States alerted ahead of Ambedkar Jayanti”

Amid incidents of vandalism across India, that started with razing of a Lenin statue in Tripura, a statue of BR Ambedkar was found to be locked in an iron cage in Uttar Pradesh's Badaun district.

According to the police, miscreants broke a statue in Gajana village in Gaurabadashahpur police station area of Jaunpur. The incident happened a day before the 127 birth anniversary of Dalit icon, said police.

Suniti Singh, SP (rural), said a case was registered against unknown persons for vandalism and that the guilty would not be spared.

A "saffron" statue of Ambedkar, unlike usual blue, was installed in Budaun's Dugraiyya village on Monday. Police called a mason and got the statue repaired.

"We would enlighten the participants, particularly the party members, about Ambedkar's life and his struggle, his role in drafting the Indian Constitution and also about his monumental role for the uplift of the Scheduled Caste people", he said, adding that he had recently met the administrative officers in Haridwar and asked them to make fool- proof arrangements for peaceful celebration of Ambedkar Jayanti in the district.

Badaun's SDM Parasnath Maurya said directives were issued to extend security till Ambedkar Jayanti on April 14 as there were chances that some anti-social elements might damage the statues to disturb social peace.
