PM Modi posted on Twitter: “On Mahaparinirvan diwas, I pay tribute to Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, and recall his exemplary services to our nation.” His struggle gave hope to millions, and his efforts in giving India such a comprehensive Constitution cannot be forgotten.
Congress MP Rahul Gandhi also posted Ambedkar’s photo on Twitter with the caption “My homage Babasaheb Ambedkar.” His message and life inspire us to fight for justice for all. Jai Bhim.”
Many leaders and ministers paid tributes to BR Ambedkar, a great social reformer and philosopher, anthropologist historian, writer, economist and scholar.
Bhimrao Ramji was born 14 April 1891. Many memorials and representations of Ambedkar’s legacy are found in popular culture. His impact on India today was deeper as a socio-political reformer.
