PM dedicates Dr. Ambedkar International Centre to the Nation

He said he would not be wrong in saying that "more people are still influenced by his ideas than the family for which such efforts (to erase his contribution) were made".

In a clear damage control move, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi distanced himself and his party from Aiyar's remarks, stating "I do not appreciate the tone and language" used by the senior party leader to address the Prime Minister and asserted that both he and the Congress party "expect him (Aiyar) to apologise for what he said".

The Congress is more interested in "Baba Bhole" than DRBRAmbedkar these days, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday, in a veiled jibe at Rahul Gandhi who has been visiting temples as part of his poll campaign in Gujarat. He had laid the foundation stone of this Institute in April 2015. He said the centre would function as a think-tank for inclusive growth, and related socio-economic matters. He said the country is indebted to Baba Saheb, for his contributions to nation-building.

The Prime Minister said that there are forces trying to divide the country on caste lines, and the present generation understands well that India can not progress with pace if such divisions are allowed. He said the Union Government wants more and more people, and especially the youth, to learn about his vision and ideas. He said that this "Panchteerth" is the today's generation's way of paying homage to Dr. Ambedkar.

He also said that his government is making all efforts to develop places related to Baba Saheb Ambedkar's life as pilgrimage sites.

Mr Modi also lamented that Ambedkar's dream of social democracy - where all have a say - is still unaccomplished.

He said the Ambedkar centre will be an inspiration for the promotion of the Dalit icon's thoughts and teachings, and that it will be a fusion of Buddhist and modern architecture.

It will show the way and further discussions on vital issues as well as encourage research, original thinking among the youth, PM Modi had said on Wednesday.
