"Attempts to erase Baba Saheb Ambedkar's role failed, he has been more influential in the minds of people, much more than the family for which all this was done", he said. The Union Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment, Shri Thaawar Chand Gehlot, the Ministers of State for Social Justice & Empowerment, Shri Vijay Sampla & Shri Krishan Pal and the Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs and Statistics & Programme Implementation, Shri Vijay Goel are also seen.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today inaugurated the Dr B.R. Ambedkar International Centre here and said it would be an important place for research on social and economic issues. Mr Modi said Dr Ambedkar was always hopeful for India's socio and economic development.

The Prime Minister said Ambedkar Centre will function as a think-tank for inclusive growth and related socio-economic matters in line with Ambedkar's push for socio-economic equality. He said that this "Panchteerth" is the today's generation's way of paying homage to Dr. Ambedkar.

The Prime Minister said that there are forces trying to divide the country on caste lines, and the present generation understands well that India can not progress with pace if such divisions are allowed. "I think this centre is for the youth... where they can see and understand the vision of Babasaheb Ambedkar", Modi said.
