Ambedkar Jayanti: BJP workers clash with MLA Jignesh Mevani's supporters in Gujarat

A statue of Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar locked in an iron cage in Badaun on Thursday

Drawing of Dr Ambedkar Portrait of 15X10 feets by using 2500 kg salts and 40 kg different colours placed at the premises of Divisional Social Welfare office at Kokadpura, is the main attraction of Jayanti. Officials said the two-feet statue was taken off the pedestal on which it had been installed in Gajna village.

In Ahmedabad, five men, including members of Rashtriya Dalit Adhikar Manch (RDAM), were detained when they tried to protest garlanding of Ambedkar's statue at Sarngpur in Ahmedabad by BJP MP Kirit Solanki.

India's Permanent Mission to the United Nations had organised a special event titled "Leaving No One Behind" at the United Nations yesterday to celebrate Ambedkar's 127th birth anniversary.

Leaders of all prominent parties will garland the statue of Dr Ambedkar at Hazratganj while BSP leaders would organize meetings at Samata Mulak Chauraha.
