President Ram Nath Kovind with Babasaheb Ambedkar's picture

The whole nation is observing the 128th birth anniversary of the father of Indian constitution and so the politicians are. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, President Ram Nath Kovind, Congress President Rahul Gandhi, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee, Suresh Prabhu, and many others paid tribute to Baba Saheb Ambedkar. 

They took to their social media handles to pay tribute to the great social reformer, economist, jurist and a leader who always worked for the welfare and empowerment of weaker sections. 

Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar was an active revolutionary against caste practices and inequality among men and women. He converted to Buddhism in 1956.

Ambedkar is the only person to receive the valuable doctorate degree named "Doctor All Science" from the London School of Economics and the highest number of statues in the world.

It was Babasaheb's idea to place Ashok Chakra in the Indian tricolor flag. He also played a major role in establishing the Reserve Bank of India.

In 1990, he was posthumously conferred with Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian award.
