UP CM conferred with 'Ambedkar Priya Yogi Adityanath' honour

UP CM conferred with 'Ambedkar Priya Yogi Adityanath' honour

Lucknow, Dec 6 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was conferred with 'Dr Ambedkar Priya Yogi Adityanath' honour on Friday.

In a programme organised on Baba Saheb's death anniversary, the honour was conferred upon the UP CM by Baba Saheb Dr Ambedkar Mahasabha Trust.

On this occasion, Mr Adityanath was gifted a three feet high statue of Dr Ambedkar.

Conferring the honour on Mr Yogi, the Trust's president Dr Lalji Prasad Nirmal said the Chief Minister had directed that Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar's pictures be put up on all offices and government schools.

In view of the Chief Minister's special attachment towards Dr Ambedkar and weaker sections of society, he has been conferred with the 'Ambedkar Priya' honour.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Yogi announced that the Dr Ambedkar Asthi Kalash Bhawan will be made as a grand monument wherein, facilities like an auditorium, library, etc will be available. He also talked about preparing its action plan.

Mr Yogi said that Baba Saheb had opposed Article 370 because he believed that this will give rise to divisive thinking. But the Congress did not pay heed to this. The work of realising Dr Ambedkar's dream has been done my Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This is a true tribute to Baba Saheb.

A special session in the Legislative Assembly was organised to relive the memories of Baba Saheb after 70 years in the form of Constitution Day.

Mr Adityanath said that Dr Ambedkar's soul lies in the Indian Constitution and PM Modi gave directions for November 26 to be celebrated as Constitution Day, to give respect and honour Baba Saheb.

On this occasion, Uttarakhand Governor Baby Rani Maurya paid her tributes to Dr Ambedkar and said that apart from being the architect of the Constitution, he was also a great economist, politician and philosopher. He gave priority to education and achieved progress through it. His principal slogan was, 'become educated, get organised and then struggle.'

Cabinet Minister Swami Prasad Maurya and Brijesh Pathak, Lucknow Mayor Sanyukta Bhatia, Ambedkar Mahasabha office-bearer Beena Maurya, Amarnath Prajapati, Dr Satya Dohre, Virendra Vikram Suman, Sarvesh Patil, Pramod Saroj, Jai Shankar Sahai, Ravishankar Havelkar, Bhaggulal Valmimi also paid their respects to Baba Saheb and shared their thoughts on this occasion.
