Tripura remembers Dr BR Ambedkar on his 61st death anniversary
By Our Correspondent, 06/12/2017, Agartala

Along with the nation, Tripura on Wednesday also remembered Dr BR Ambedkar on his 61st death anniversary. As a part of the program, Minister of Welfare of Scheduled Caste (SC) Ratan Bhowmik on Wednesday paid floral tribute to the statue of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar at Ujayanta Palace to commemorate the celebration of ‘Mahaparinirvan Din’. The day is observed to mark the death anniversary, Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar .

Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar had died on 6th of December in the 1956 that’s why Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Mahaparinirvan Din or death anniversary is celebrated every year all over the India on 6th of December to pay him a lot of tribute and honor. He is called as “The Father of the Indian Constitution”. 

BR Ambedkar, fondly called Baba Saheb, was born in a Dalit family during the colonial era of India. He grew up seeing the atrocities meted out to the Dalits, who were treated as untouchables and were ostracised. He later campaigned against the social discrimination against the Dalits and became the force behind the Dalit Buddhist Movement in India.
