  • Another Ambedkar statue is vandalised

However, amidst many messages of greetings, minor clashes were witnessed in states like Punjab and Gujarat. In some regions, internet was also suspended anticipating violence.

A person had died in Meerut, another in the nearby Muzaffarnagar in the April 2 nationwide Dalit agitation.

Districts magistrates and superintendents of police have been asked to ensure peace and check any violence in their respective areas of jurisdiction.

This is probably the first time that political parties have shown such a zeal in celebrating Dr Ambedkar's birth anniversary.

The event commenced at 8.00 am with a prayer song sung by the choir members followed by thought for the day by Vaishnavi Suresh of Class X and Significance of the Day by Sonali Umanath of Class X. Principal Fr Robert D'Souza, vice-principal Belita Mascarenhas along with the student representatives offered a floral tribute to Dr B R Ambedkar.

Thakor Solanki, general secretary of SC/ST the Employees Union of Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, claimed that they had gathered at the venue to pay their tributes before the BJP leaders.

I "probably" won't attend White House Correspondent's Dinner
President Donald Trump will refuse to participate in the annual event, making this the second time he does so. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be attending the event and sitting at the head table.

Punjab's Phagwara was tense after a communal clash broke out between a Dalit and a Hindu outfit over renaming of a traffic intersection in a bid to pay tribute to Ambedkar late Friday night.

The chief minister has ordered suspension of mobile Internet services in Kapurthala, Jalandhar, Hoshiarpur and SBS Nagar districts to check rumour-mongering on social media, according to an official release. Heavy police force was deployed in view of the tense situation.

A group of Sikhs also protested outside the United Nations headquarters in NY against alleged atrocities perpetrated against minority communities in India.

In the morning, Prime Minister Modi tweeted: "Pujya Babasaheb gave hope to lakhs of people belonging to the poorest and marginalised sections of society".

Bhubaneswar: April 14, 2018 marks the 127th birth anniversary of Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar, popularly and lovingly called as Babasaheb Ambedkar or Dr. BR Ambedkar.

He said Ambedkar had recognised the difference between India and other countries and accordingly prepared plans for shaping future of the country. He said it is his government which has strengthened this act to prevent atrocities against Dalits.
