NEW DELHI: Chief Min­is­ter Arvind Ke­jri­wal led the Delhiites in pay­ing homage to the fa­ther of In­dian Con­sti­tu­tion, Dr. Bhim Rao Ambed­kar on his 128th birth an­niver­sary in a func­tion or­ga­nized by Delhi Vid­han Sabha at Old Sec­re­tar­iat, Delhi on Thurs­day. Ke­jri­wal paid flo­ral trib­utes at the statue of Babasa­heb on this oc­ca­sion.

Delhi Leg­isla­tive Assem­bly Speaker Ram Niwa Goyal, Deputy Speaker Rakhi Bid­lan, MLAS Chaud­hary Fateh Singh, Manoj Ku­mar and Pankaj Puskar also paid flo­ral trib­utes to Ambed­kar. Pay­ing his trib­utes to Dr Ambed­kar, Ke­jri­wal said that Baba Sa­heb Ambed­kar was a great ed­u­ca­tion­ist, so­cial re­former, an states­man of out­stand­ing cal­i­bre who al­ways strug­gled for es­tab­lish­ing Equal­ity, Fra­ter­nity and Lib­erty in the so­ci­ety which he in­cluded, while draft­ing the Con­sti­tu­tion and its Pre­am­ble.

On the other hand, Delhi So­cial Wel­fare Min­is­ter Ra­jen­dra Pal Gau­tam on Thurs­day vis­ited Chaitye Bhumi, Ra­ja­gruha Res­i­dence of Dr Babasa­heb Ambed­kar at Dadri, Ma­ha­rash­tra with Brig. Sud­hir Sawant and party work­ers to pay flo­ral trib­utes to Dr. Bhim­rao Ambed­kar. “On Jan­uary 26, 1950, We the Peo­ple of In­dia de­clared our­selves a sov­er­eign repub­lic by giv­ing unto our­selves a Con­sti­tu­tion that guar­an­tees lib­erty, free­dom, fra­ter­nity, fun­da­men­tal rights, a sec­u­lar fab­ric, in­sti­tu­tions for checks & bal­ances, and above all -equal­ity to all of us,” Gau­tam said.

“Although anom­alies in so­cial strata still re­main even to this day, a large sec­tion of the his­tor­i­cally dis­en­fran­chised have been able to lift them­selves out of the tra­di­tion their fore­fa­thers bore for gen­er­a­tions,” the So­cial Wel­fare Min­is­ter said.
