Gujarat Polls: PM Modi addresses rally in Dhandhuka

Ambedkar International Centre for Socio-Economic Transformation (DAICSET) in New Delhi on Thursday.

Such was the incredible strength of Ambedkar that his philosophy and contribution in nation building could not be erased despite the efforts of some people, the prime minister said in his address. "He has been more influential in the minds of people, much more than the family for which all this was done", Modi said.

Modi further said that the Central government was developing places related to Ambedkar's life as pilgrimage sites.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi continued his campaign in Gujarat with just 3 days to go before the first phase of polling on 9th of December. He said today's generation has the capability and the potential to eradicate social evils. "Rahul Gandhi must answer this", said the BJP's Sambit Patra.

"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".

"From the last three years, we have tried to fulfil the dream of Baba Saheb's social democracy". Initiatives taken by the Government include Jan Dhan Yojana, Ujjwala Yojana, Swachh Bharat Mission, insurance schemes, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana and the recently launched Saubhagya Yojana.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his message on the occasion said, "I bow to Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar on his Mahaparinirvan Diwas", and added that he had felt extremely blessed when he had prayed at Chaitya Bhoomi in Mumbai.

He said the Ambedkar centre will be an inspiration for the promotion of the Dalit icon's thoughts and teachings, and that it will be a fusion of Buddhist and modern architecture.

The Union Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment, Shri Thaawar Chand Gehlot, the Ministers of State for Social Justice & Empowerment, Shri Vijay Sampla, Shri Krishan Pal and Shri Ramdas Athawale are also seen.

Saying he has faith in the youth of the country to fight casteism, Prime minister said young Indians will fulfil the dream of New India.
