With Dalit politics taking a centre stage, all major political parties of Uttar Pradesh are gearing up to celebrate the 127th Birth Anniversary of Dr Baba Saheb Bhim Rao Ambedkar with elan and project themselves as the true saviour of Dalits.

In a tweet, Rahul Gandhi said, "Paying rich tribute to Baba Saheb Ambedkar on his birth anniversary". He stressed on two points - the first one was to be a responsible citizen by following the law and protecting the Constitution.

He also launched the Gram Swaraj scheme to empower weaker sections, tribals, women and backward people, besides the Van Dhan scheme to ensure better marketing and value addition to minor forest produce to benefit forest dwellers. Four persons were injured in the clash forcing the administration to suspend internet connection in four districts of the state - Kapurthala, Jalandhar, Hoshiarpur and SBS Nagar.

After the bandh, the statues of Ambedkar were found damaged in Satna, Bhind and Balaghat districts. Heavy police force was deployed in view of the tense situation.




A case has been registered and efforts are on to nab the culprits behind the act, police said. Security has been beefed up across the state. At some places, policemen have been deputed in areas having statues.

Outside the country, Ambedkar's birth anniversary became a rallying point at the United Nations where a group of Sikhs held a protest against the atrocities against minorities and Dalits in India.

Dalit leaders also took strong objection to the painting of the upper part of an under construction Ambedkar memorial in Gorakhpur (UP) in saffron colour.

The Samajwadi Party has never celebrated Dr Ambedkar's birth anniversary with such gusto as it is doing this time. A large numbers of people also visit local statues in all places to commemorate Ambedkar Jayanti by garlanding them.
