By Ians

London, Nov 12: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday described B.R. Ambedkar as a "great son of India" in his speech at the British Parliament and said Ambedkar stood for the empowerment of the weak, the oppressed and the excluded.

"In defining the purpose of our partnership, we must turn to a great son of India, whose house in London I shall dedicate to the cause of social justice on Saturday. Ambedkar, whose 125th birth anniversary we are celebrating now, was not just an architect of India's constitution and our parliamentary democracy."
