Dr BR Ambedkar is universal symbol of human freedom and individual dignity: President Kovind
The birth anniversary of Dr BR Ambedkar is celebrated every year on April 14 throughout the country and by his followers abroad. Calling Dr Ambedkar a 'universal symbol of human freedom and individual dignity', President Ram Nath Kovind has greeted fellow-citizens on Ambedkar Jayanti.

In his released message, President Kovind stated, "On the occasion of the birth anniversary of Dr BR Ambedkar, I pay my homage to this icon of our national life, and extend my warm greetings to all fellow citizens."

"Dr Ambedkar was a multifaceted personality whose impact on our society and nation has remained relevant – and will remain relevant. He was an academic and economist, a scholar and moral philosopher, an exceptional legal mind and constitutionalist. Above all, he was an activist for social reform and for legitimate opportunities for women, and a champion of liberty," he added.

He further stated, "Dr Ambedkar waged a life-long struggle for a better and fairer society – for a modern India free of caste and other prejudices, ensuring equal economic and social rights to women and to those from traditionally disadvantaged communities. His ideals and his belief in the rule of law found most eloquent expression in the Constituent Assembly. Appropriately, he is considered the Chief Architect of our Constitution – which continues to be the guiding light for the Republic of India."

He urged, "Let us draw inspiration from this great figure of history and this great Indian. The best tribute to him would be to build a just, egalitarian and developed India – an India that lives up to the republican ethic that Dr Ambedkar shaped and defined for us and for future generations."

President Kovind is scheduled to grace a function today on the occasion of 127th birth anniversary of Babasaheb Dr BR Ambedkar at Mhow in Indore district of Madhya Pradesh.
