As Per Government of Maharashtra 14th of April is observed as Knowledge Day in memory of Babasaheb Ambedkar.

"The administration has identified a total of 21 spots in Meerut city as hyper-sensitive and 35 in rural areas".

While Rahul Gandhi tweeted paeans - "Paying rich tribute to Baba Saheb Ambedkar on his birth anniversary".

While events led by chief minister Vijay Rupani in Gandhinagar and BJP president Jitu Vaghani in Surat did not see any protest, Subodh Parma and other five supporters of Mevani were detained from Sarngpur. An argument broke out between them and the police personnel, but no untoward incident took place.

In a message, Kovind said, Dr Ambedkar was a multifaceted personality whose impact on the society and nation has remained relevant and will remain relevant. However, police prevented us from garlanding the statue, stating that as per the protocol, it was the mayor's right. "We told the police that since we had gathered there much before the BJP leaders came, it was our right to pay tributes first", Solanki said.

He said Facebook had considered the data collection "a closed case" and had not alerted the Federal Trade Commission. A more poignant line of questioning was led by Rep.

In Vadodara in Gujarat, members of a Dalit group "cleansed" Ambedkar's statue soon after Union minister Maneka Gandhi and some BJP leaders paid floral tributes, a community leader said, claiming that their presence had "polluted" the atmosphere.

The chief minister has ordered suspension of mobile Internet services in Kapurthala, Jalandhar, Hoshiarpur and SBS Nagar districts to check rumour-mongering on social media, according to an official release. Punjab has highest proportion of Dalit population in the country. Ambedkar understood that in order to become a greater nation, India needs spiritual development.

PM Modi said, "A son of a poor mother, belonging to a very backward community, this partner of yours is if today the Prime Minister, that is too due to Babasaheb Ambedkar".

Ahead of Ambedkar Jayanti on April 14, the Centre on Thursday asked all states to beef up security and check any possible attempt to incite violence.

The President said that in his move towards building a better and fairer society, Dr Ambedkar emphasised the values of nonviolence and of compassion in public life.
