Bengaluru: Today is the Jayanti of Ambedkar, the father of Indian Constitution. 

While the nation celebrates the birth anniversary of genius, it is also important to know how the Congress party has insulted him. 

None other than JP Nadda, the BJP party chief hit out at the grand old party for its step-motherly treatment. He said, "Congress didn't give Baba Saheb the respect he should have been given when he was alive. Bharat Ratna was conferred upon him 4 decades after his death. But the BJP government have been making a systematic effort to make his resolutions a reality."

He also added, "By making Panch Tirtha the sites of Baba Saheb, the Modi government has proved that our attitude towards them, by achieving their inspiration, is to raise the level of the deprived, the exploited and the backward. Baba Saheb is ideal for us and always will be."

He also promised the citizens that BJP would carry forward his ideals. 

He said, "On behalf of all BJP workers on Babasaheb Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar's birth anniversary, we pledge to carry forward his ideals and ideas in social life with a determined spirit." 

The BJP president also recalled the multifaceted personality of the Ambedkar. He said, "Babasaheb Ambedkar's personality was multifaceted. His contribution to social, economic, political, educational, religious, historical, cultural, constitutional areas in 65 years of his life is unforgettable. The nation will always be grateful to Babasaheb for his contribution and his role in building modern India."

President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid homage to the great leader. 

Ambedkar’s life has a lot of teachings that are relevant even to this day. The social rights activist has left a deep impression on the minds of the people. His jayanti is celebrated at Chaitya Bhoomi in Mumbai and Deeksha Bhoomi in Nagpur.
