Agartala, May 01, 2023: SC Welfare minister Sudhangshu Das on Monday said that those who forget history cannot make history and hence, the achievements of Dr BR Ambedkar, the framer of the Constitution, should not be forgotten. His direction is alive and the Constitution of India given by him is alive. All must move forward in the coming days by following these. India is being governed on the basis of the constitution of its largest democratic country and is advancing with great respect in the court of the world. Therefore, it is very important for students to know the achievements of great people in the country, he added.
While speaking at the closing and panel discussion of week-long celebration of Dr. BR Ambedkar’s 133rd birth anniversary at Rabindra Satabarshiki Bhawan on Monday, SC Welfare minister Das said that long before the country became independent, those from outside the country tried to rule the countrymen and their policy was divide and rule. That policy is still followed by some political parties in the country. It is unfortunate for the country, even after 75 years of independence, some political parties want to rule the country by dividing the people on the basis of caste.
He also said that some government employees are not present regularly in various offices. They keep giving fake signatures. One aspect is that the government will take strict action against them. But on the other hand, until they develop the mindset of working for the people and don’t think about paying salaries with the people’s tax money, garlanding the portrait of Dr. BR Ambedkar and discussing it is nothing but a failure.
Addressing the students present on the occasion, the minister also said that they will play a big responsibility to take the state and the country forward in the coming days.
Mayor Dipak Majumder, former MLA Rebati Mohan Das, MLA Minarani Sarkar and officials of the organizer of the event were also present.
