Protests, 'cleaning' and tributes mark Ambedkar's birth anniversary this year

City police detained four supporters of Jignesh Mevani for trying to prevent the BJP MP from Ahmedabad West, Kirit Solanki, from paying tribute to Babasaheb Ambedkar at Sarangpur on his 127th birth anniversary.

Chamling hailed Ambedkar for his selfless service to the nation and recalled his role in the framing of Indian constitution.

PM Modi said, "A son of a poor mother, belonging to a very backward community, this partner of yours is if today the Prime Minister, that is too due to Babasaheb Ambedkar". He ensured protection of your rights.It is the duty of the government to take care of your rights. He believed that this was our country, for all of us, and that whatever needed to be done to bring justice to the weaker sections of society could be achieved by adhering to social harmony.

Violent protests on April 2 and April 10 during Bharat bandhs - the first against the Supreme Court ruling on the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities Act) and the second by upper caste groups against reservation - had also put senior police officials into a tizzy in Bihar. He appreciated the five pillars of the Constitution - Sovereign, Socialist, Secular, and Democratic Republic and said that all were blessed to have them as citizens of India.

OH teen trapped in van dies despite pleas to 911
About 800,000 Honda Odyssey vans were recalled in 2017 because of a problem with second-row seats accidentally tipping forward. A 16-year-old sophomore made at least two agonizing 911 calls, pleading for help as his van's seats slowly crushed him.

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 incident in Richhpal Garhi village of Bisrakh came to light when the villagers spotted the damaged statue.

Singh said that the damaged statue was being replaced with a new one.

The situation was said to be under control as authorities imposed prohibitory conditions and deployed additional police force.

After the new found bonhomie with its arch rival BSP, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav unveiled a statue of Ambedkar at its Lucknow office. Chief minister Vijay Rupani paid tribute to Ambedkar before the statue at Swarnim Park in Gandhinagar.
