Modi was speaking at the inauguration ceremony of Dr Ambedkar International Centre in Delhi, which he said took 23 years for completion, blaming the delay on the Congress regime. PM said the party that banked on Ambedkar’s name for votes has conveniently forgotten the Dalit icon and is now invoking Baba (Lord Shiva) for political mileage, in a jibe at Rahul Gandhi.
The Congress leader Rahul evoked Lord Shiva in reply to the BJP‘s criticism terming his temple visits as an election gimmick.
Continuing his tirade against the Congress, Modi said: “Attempts to erase Baba Saheb Ambedkar’s contribution have failed because he been more influential in the minds of people, much more than the family (Gandhis) for which all this was done.”
The prime minister also unveiled two statues of the Dalit icon.
Modi also said the government had realized Baba Saheb’s dream of an inclusive India that gives equal opportunities to every citizen irrespective of caste, creed and faith.
“You will be surprised to know that some 60 per cent beneficiaries of the government’s self-employment loan scheme that transformed the meaning of jobs in the country are Dalits, backwards and tribals. Till now, some 9.75 crore loan (applications) have been accepted and people have been given credits worth over Rs 4 lakh crore,” Modi said.
The Prime Minister said the country was indebted to Ambedkar for his contributions to nation-building.
