Chief Minister K Rosaiah on Wednesday promised to take the issue of installing a statue of Dr BR Ambedkar at the Andhra Bhavan in the National capital with the concerned authorities.
The Chief Minister said that he had come to know that some people employed at Andhra Bhavan wanted to install a statue of the great leader there but were denied permission by the government due to certain norms to be followed.
Mr Rosaiah said that, “if I would have informed about the pendency of this issue, I would have examined it and required cabinet approvals might have been released.”
He took part in the celebrations to mark Dr BR Ambedkar’s birth anniversary held at AP Bhavan, where he described the Architect of India’s Constitution as a great son of the India.
Mr Rosaiah said that it is a great coincidence that Dr Ambedkar’s birth anniversary and the Baisakhi festival have fallen on the same day this year.
