"Where would Narendra Modi have been without Babasaheb Ambedkar?"

Paying homage to Bharat Ratna Babasaheb Ambedkar, the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi said the country can do without both the social untouchability that Dr. Ambedkar faced during his lifetime, and the political untouchability that he faced after death. In his remarks at the Foundation Stone Ceremony of Dr. Ambedkar International Centre, the Prime Minister said that Babasaheb Ambedkar stood for all of humanity, and was, in particular, a ray of hope for the marginalized and downtrodden sections of society.

He said Babasaheb had created great Constitutional institutions such as the Election Commission and Finance Commission, in which the entire nation had immense faith and confidence even today. 

Shri Narendra Modi said Babasaheb united society, and India must make sure that the whole world recognizes his immense contribution to mankind. He said Babasaheb represented a combination of Samata (equality) and Mamata (motherly love), which brought about Samrasta (social harmony).

Noting that this project had been conceived in 1992 – more than 20 years ago – the Prime Minister said he was distressed at the delay in the initialization of this project, and emphasized that his Government had resolved to complete the work within 20 months. He urged the concerned departments to ensure a world-class quality of construction.
