On December 7, Prime Minister Modi is going to inaugurate the Dr Ambedkar International Centre at 15 Janpath, Delhi. 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.

Modi further said that the Central government was developing places related to Ambedkar's life as pilgrimage sites.

In a veiled attack against Nehru-Gandhi family, PM said, "Ambedkar is still in the minds of people much more than 'the family for which all this was done".

"Baba Saheb's contribution to nation building is very important, there had been attempts to undermine his role, but such attempts were unsuccessful", he said. He said that this "Panchteerth" is the today's generation's way of paying homage to Dr. Ambedkar.

Ambedkar International Centre is a fusion of Buddhist and present-day architecture.

Hundreds of people gathered at the Samvidhan Square to pay their glowing tributes to Architect of Indian Constitution Bharat Ratna Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar on his 61st Mahaparinirvan Din. He had laid the foundation stone of this Institute in April 2015. The house on King Henry Road in London, where Ambedkar lived as a student in the London School of Economics, has already been acquired and is being developed into a memorial and research centre.

He said the Congress had planned the centre in 1992 but it was only now during the BJP's tenure that work was completed. He said that we have still not been able to fulfil the vision of Dr. Ambedkar.
