Dr. JP for installation of Ambedkar Statue before month-end

Lok Satta Party National President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan today requested the Speaker and the Deputy Speaker of the Andhra Pradesh Assembly to install a statue of Dr. Baba Saheb B. R. Ambedkar before September 2012.

He told Telangana Jagriti President K. Kavita, who met him at the Lok Satta Party headquarters, that the Lok Satta Party fully supported her demand for an Ambedkar statue in the Assembly premises. The Lok Satta Party carries a portrait of Dr. Ambedkar along with that of Mahatma Gandhi in its banner.

Since every one cutting across party lines is in favor of installing a statue of Dr. Ambedkar, the architect of the Indian Constitution, Dr. JP wanted the Speaker and the Deputy Speaker to act before this month-end when the Assembly is scheduled to meet.

Mrs. Kavita expressed happiness over Dr. JP informing her that the Speaker and the Deputy Speaker have responded favorably to his request on the statue issue.
