Dr Ambedkar is undoubtedly one of the immortal icons of this country. There is a lot of attribution to the growth and development of neglected classes with his name. However, things have honestly not been going smooth with the way students have taken the aid of the great visionary. The rise of leftist movement in the country has left a stark impact on the rest who do not see a viable outcome of it.
In the prevailing circumstances, CM N Chandrababu Naidu had announced his decision to erect a 125 ft. long statue of Dr Ambedkar in the new capital city Amaravati. Mr Naidu plans to commemorate the statue marking the 125th birth anniversary of the legend.
“We are planning to develop the memorial as a garden which will have a convention center and a Buddhist meditation hall. We are also planning to set up a museum and a library to make people aware about the great leader’s teachings” said Mr Naidu, adding that the museum will depict the life and teachings of Ambedkar that will come up on a 15 acre site.
Adding to the other plans of making Amaravati one of the largest Buddhist attractions of the globe, CM said that this statue will hold and ‘anti-discrimination week’ and will host an international Buddhist convention.
While the CM is leaning towards the cause for good results that reflect the real spirit of Dr Ambedkar, the critics and the sceptics cannot but stop wondering the timing of it all.
