India Needs Harmony Not War, Says President Ram Nath Kovind From Mhow on Ambedkar Jayanti

India Needs Harmony Not War, Says President Ram Nath Kovind From Mhow on Ambedkar Jayanti

He attributed his own success to the chief framer of the Constitution. So many years after the independence they remained backward despite the Babasaheb's Constitution having given enormous opportunities and had encouraged to move forward.

"On occasion of Ambedkar jayanti I appealed the youths not to take up arms and ruin their life". You do not need to ruin your life. We are all ashamed of them and I am here to assure that no culprit will be left free and complete justice will be done. None of them is a local and they are not from amongst you.

Chhattisgarh now boasts of over 11,583 VLEs who are working at the Gram Panchayat level across the 27 districts of the State. The scheme aims to provide footwear to Tendu leaves (tendupatta) collectors to facilitate their smooth movement in the forest area. "We demand that you set a true example and prove that the current Indian government does care about the well-being and dignity of its children".

Mr Modi said Babasaheb enshrined the rights of weaker and marginalised sections of society in the Constitution and it was the responsibility of the government to realise them.

The scheme was launched by PM Modi at Jangla village in Bijapur. The birthday of Dr B R Ambedkar will be observed on Saturday, April 14. While the government has pressed for a review of the court order, a nationwide protest earlier this month by Dalit bodies turned violent in several states. Modi also launched the first phase of the ambitious Ayushman Bharat scheme here. These two health sector initiatives under Ayushman Bharat Programme will build a New India 2022 and ensure enhanced productivity, well being and avert wage loss and impoverishment. During his tenure as Prime Minister, this was his fourth visit to Chhattisgarh and second visit to Bastar region.

"Ambedkar had a huge contribution in awakening the aspirations and expectations of millions of people like me".

The line, part of the Dallirajhra-Rowghat Railway project, will help connect the people of north Bastar. I want to say to their mothers and fathers, your daughters and sons have walked down this path. If Bijapur can see development in 100 days then why can't the other districts witness the same? "After so many years of independence these districts still remain backward", he said.

On 5 January, Modi had asked officials to devote the coming three months in developing these backward districts.

He said the Centre has identified 115 most backward districts in the country to give a special focus on their development. He said it was Modi's love and affection for the state that he was leaving no stone unturned for the development of the state.
