రాజ్యాంగానికి ప్రతి రూపం బాబా సాహెబ్. అణగారిన వర్గాలకు ఆశాదీపం ఆయన. ఆయన భావాలకు మరణం లేదు. 100 ఏళ్ళకు పైగా భారత సమాజాన్ని నిరంతరం నడిపిస్తున్న ఆ మహానుభావుడికి, ఆ మహాశక్తికి, ఆయన జయంతి సందర్భంగా ఘన నివాళులు.— YS Jagan Mohan Reddy (@ysjagan) April 14, 2022
Dr Ambedkar was born on 14 April 1891 in Mhow (now officially known as Dr Ambedkar Nagar) in Madhya Pradesh. He fought against the social evils like untouchability, caste discrimination and oppression. April 14 is marked as Ambedkar Jayanti to honour his contribution to the constitution of India. Chief Minister MK Stalin-led government on Wednesday announced that this year onwards Ambedkar Jayanthi will be observed as ‘Equality Day’ in the state.
