'The Architect of Constitution is neglected by CM'A


Mangalagiri (Guntur): Dalit ideologue and Dalit Mahasabha founder Prof Katti Padma Rao has declared the dawn of Ambedkar era as the Architect of Indian Constitution is respected all over the globe for his philosophy on equality of human beings.

He was chief guest at the birth anniversary celebrations of Ambedkar on the campus of Acharya Nagarjuna University here on Sunday. Speaking on the occasion, he lambasted the State government for ignoring the Bharat Ratna when the legend was respected everywhere with the installation of his statues. The government led by Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy was deliberately neglecting the statue erection on the premises of the Assembly.

The Kiran government would be wiped out in the Ambedkar wave if it failed to change its stance on the statue issue. The onus of setting up statue was with the Congress. Any further delay in this issue would be treated as an insult to the great leader of our times at the hands of the national party. This stigma would prove costly for the Congress, he warned.

Declaring that this era belongs to Ambedkar, the Dalit leader said that his birth anniversary was being celebrated all over the country by garlanding his statue. Ambedkar was respected at national level as leaders assemble to pay their tributes at parliament.A Even in London, a statue of Ambedkar was installed at Indian House. It was unfortunate that such a great leader was ignored in the State, he lamented.

Stating that Ambedkar had strived for the uplift of Dalits and tribals, Kanna said the State government was working towards realising his dreams. Former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi had put in serious initiative to make true the vision of Ambedkar for a modern India. The State government was serious on carrying out the agenda set by Indira Gandhi to fulfil the dreams of Ambedkar, he said.
