“The centre will prove to be an inspiration for the promotion of the thoughts and teachings of Dr Ambedkar. The centre will be an important place for research on social and economic issues,” the prime minister said.
Modi added that the government had developed five places related to Babasaheb Ambedkar into pligrimage spots.
