Modi accuses Cong of ignoring Ambedkar legacy

Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the village self-governance “Gramoday se Bharat Uday” campaign on Thursday - Dr Ambedkar’s 125 birth anniversary from his birthplace at Mhow in Madhya Pradesh.

Slamming the Congress, Modi accused it of  getting “restless” over his government’s efforts to develop the legacy of Baba Saheb Ambedkar.

Detailing his initiatives towards this direction, Modi said that some people are perturbed over why he is doing so.

Addressing a rally at Mhow, the Prime Minister said that the Congress did nothing to develop “five holy places” (Panchteerth) associated with the life of Ambedkar. He said that the Congress should repent for it.

“Successive governments during 60 years did nothing. We had not stopped them from doing it. When we are doing it, why are they getting disturbed,” he said.

“For us, this is a matter of dedication and conviction. We believe that social unity, social harmony and social justice can be achieved only by following the path shown by Baba Saheb. I feel proud to work at his feet,” he said.

He said that Ambedkar had the vision of future India.

Speaking about “Gramoday se Bharat Uday”, he described the government’s efforts to uplift the poor and downtrodden.
