Governor’s message on Ambedkar Jayanti
Nagaland Governor, PB Acharya, on the occasion of Ambedkar Jayanti, has issued a message where he stated that Dr. B. R. Ambedkar was truly a builder of a nation and a global leader instead of just a Dalit leader. Ambedkar Jayanti or Bhim Jayanti is an annual festival observed on April 14 to commemorate the memory of Babasaheb Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, marking his birth on April 14, 1891.
In his message sent through the Raj Bhavan PRO, Acharya said that Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar is called “The Architect of the Indian Constitution”. He pointed out that the constitution of India was written by a Committee headed by Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar. The Governor further added that Dr. Babasaheb, being from the Scheduled Caste, knew the pains of being discriminated against and “did a great job” in removing such social injustices.
