Hyderabad: The 122nd birth anniversary of Dr BR Ambedkar, the architect of Indian constitution, was celebrated on a grand note. Various political parties and social organisations paid tributes to the Ambedkar statue on Tank Bund, while calling for the accomplishment of his philosophy and vision for caste-free developed India. Even as political leaders from the ruling party recalled the great contributions of Dr Ambedkar and counted on the schemes introduced by the government for welfare of underprivileged community, certain leaders pointed out government's failures in addressing common man's woes. CPI (M) State secretary BV Raghavulu came down heavily on the government for failing to appoint a chairman for State's ST/SC Commission from years. "Not appointing a chairman for the Commission from years is nothing but the inefficiency of the government and its Cabinet members," said the left party leader. Lok Satta party chief Jayaprakash Narayan pointed out that having about 90 to 95 per cent illiterate people from SCs and STs, even after spending so much money, was a betrayal and lack of sincerity towards the community. Earlier, Jayaprakash accompanied by his supporters paid floral tributes to the statue. Meanwhile, TJAC chairman Prof. Kodandaram stated that Dr Ambedkar, in his vision for a reorganised nation had put forward the idea of smaller states for a stronger nation. A number of processions from various parts of twin cities were headed to Tank Bund to pay respects at the statue.
