In his released message, President Kovind stated, "On the occasion of the birth anniversary of Dr BR Ambedkar, I pay my homage to this icon of our national life, and extend my warm greetings to all fellow citizens". 26, Alipur Road is the place where Ambedkar lived in his last days and died in 1956. A Bodhi Tree, a musical fountain and a facade lighting are the other attractions of the memorial. "As a country, as a society we all are ashamed of it", the Prime Minister said.

Earlier this month, PM Modi had slammed opposition parties for politicising the legacy of Dr Ambedkar, saying no regime had honoured the Dalit icon like his government had.

The Prime Ministers comment on the recent horrific rape cases in Unnao and Kathua have been welcomed by some but there are citizens questioning as to why did it take so long for the Prime Minister to speak on the issue.
