New Delhi : PM Narendra Modi on December 7, 2017, dedicated Dr Ambedkar International Centre in New Delhi, to the nation. He had laid the foundation stone of this Institute in April 2015. Speaking on the occasion, the Prime Minister expressed confidence that the Centre would play a key role in the dissemination of Dr Ambedkar’s teachings and vision.

Noting that the Dr. Ambedkar International Centre for Socio Economic Transformation is also part of this project, the Prime Minister said that this will be an important centre for research on social and economic issues. He said the centre would function as a think-tank for inclusive growth and related socio-economic matters.

The Prime Minister said that thought-leaders and visionaries have shaped the direction of our country at different points of time. He said the country is indebted to Baba Saheb for his contributions to nation-building. He said the Union Government wants more and more people especially the youth to learn about his vision and ideas.

That is why, the PM added, that important places related to Dr Ambedkar’s life have been developed as centres of pilgrimage. In this context, he mentioned the sites at Alipur in Delhi, Mhow in Madhya Pradesh, Indu Mill in Mumbai, Deeksha Bhumi in Nagpur, and the house in London. He said that this ‘Panchteerth’ is the today’s generation’s way of paying homage to Dr Ambedkar. He said that the BHIM App for digital transactions, is the Union Government’s homage to the economic vision of Dr Ambedkar.

Quoting from Dr Ambedkar’s address to the Constituent Assembly in December 1946, the Prime Minister said despite his struggles, Dr Ambedkar had an inspirational vision for the nation to overcome its problems. He said that we have still not been able to fulfil the vision of Dr Ambedkar. He said today’s generation has the capability and the potential to eradicate social evils.

The Prime Minister recalled Dr Ambedkar’s words, that we should make our political democracy, a social democracy as well. He said that over the last three to three and a half years, the Union Government has worked towards fulfilling this vision of social democracy. In this context, he mentioned initiatives taken by the Government such as Jan Dhan Yojana, Ujjwala Yojana, Swachh Bharat Mission, insurance schemes, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, and the recently launched Saubhagya Yojana, according to aPIB release. He said the Union Government is making every effort to complete schemes and projects within their intended duration, and the Dr. Ambedkar International Centre represents one illustration of this.

The Prime Minister asserted that his call of “New India” is the India which Dr Ambedkar envisioned, where everyone has equal opportunity and rights, free from caste oppression, and progressing through the strength of technology.
