Fulfilling Ambedkar’s vision of inclusive India: PM Modi

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday that his government was doing everything to fulfil BR Ambedkar’s dreams of “creating a prosperous and inclusive India”.

“Our government is leaving no stone unturned to fulfil the vision and dreams of Ambedkar to create a prosperous and inclusive India,” he said while paying tributes to Baba Saheb on his 60th death anniversary.

He also released two commemorative coins on the occasion which are of the 10-rupee and 125-rupee denomination.

“Honoured to release commemorative coins on Ambedkar. It is because of great men like Babasaheb that India scaled heights of progress,” Modi said.

“He will always be remembered as an original and profound thinker. His views on inclusiveness and harmony continue to inspire us.

“We are aware of Ambedkar’s contributions towards social justice but Babasaheb’s thoughts on economic issues are equally enlightening.”

He also said that Dalit leader’s vision on women empowerment, federalism and economy had their relevance today.

“The more we recall Ambedkar’s thought in the context of issues currently faced by India, the more we come to respect his vision and his approach to inclusiveness.”

Modi said Baba Saheb and the constitution of India should always be discussed and talked about.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley was present on the occasion. President Pranab Mukherjee also paid homage to the iconic leader. The government has announced that it will have a year-long celebration of the 125th birth anniversary of Baba Saheb.
