Hyderabad: TDP Chief Mr. N. Chandrababu Naidu has said that Dr. B R Ambedkar was a great benefactor of the weaker sections and there was need to follow his ideals.
Dr. Ambedkar’s 120th birth anniversary was observed at the NTR Trust Bhavan, head quarters of the TDP on Thursday. Mr. Naidu garlanded the photo of Dr. Ambedkar and paid rich tributes to him.
Speaking on the occasion, he said Dr. Ambedkar, apart from playing a leading role in the making of the Indian constitution, fought all his life for the removal of un-touchability, caste system and other social evils. He said that TDP has been striving for the fulfillment of the ideals of Ambedkar right from the day it was launched. NTR, founder of the TDP has announced with great conviction that he took Ambedkar as his ideal, Naidu added.
Naidu has claimed that it was the TDP government that has appointed SC, ST Commission for the first time in the country to prevent atrocities on the weaker sections. He has alleged that the present Congress government was diverting the funds of the SC, ST sub plan as it had no commitment for the welfare of the weaker sections.
Lamenting that there was still discrepancy in the society, he said there was need for continuing the fight Dr. Ambedkar had started with his spirit as the driving force. He has called upon his party cadres to be in the fore front of the fight.
TDP senior leaders Varla Ramaiah, Motkupalli Narsimhulu, Rumandla Ramachandraiah, Peddi Reddy, Sudhish Rambhotla, LVSRK Prasad, TD Janardhan, Sai Tulasi and others took part in the programme. (NSS)
