PM Modi to introduce coin on BR Ambedkar's birth anniversary
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will introduce a coin on April 14 to mark the 125th anniversary of B.R Ambedkar, the leading framer of the Constitution. The week-long calendar of celebrations over his 125th birth anniversary is part of the plans the Modi government has taken to embrace Ambedkar. The PM's pitch for popularising BHIM app, named after Ambedkar, is significant because of the near consensus that popular endorsement of note ban was one of the factors which contributed to the saffron landslide in UP. The PM asked MPs to enlist youths as ambassadors of the government's public welfare work and good governance.
