Bijapur will no longer be known as backward district: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the Ambedkar National Memorial at 26, Alipur Road here on Friday, a government release said on Thursday.

Saluting security forces during the speech that lasted for over an hour, Modi said a memorial has been built in Bijapur to honour the personnel who died in Naxal violence.

Dr Babasaheb had, in his resignation letter, written that'I have not been made party of any committee of the Cabinet - neither the foreign affairs committee not the committee on defence. "I have confidence that on Babasaheb Jayanti, the schemes that we have launched will create new frontiers of development", he said.

The PM said when Ambedkar contested Lok Sabha elections, the Congress put its full weight behind in defeating him.

In a significant development that could cause considerable embarrassment to Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of his London trip next week, Indian students in United Kingdom have written to him asking him to first take action in rape cases.

Apart from the health and wellness centres that will offer free checkups for diseases such as cancer, diabetes and hypertension, these centres are to be equipped with teleconferencing technology so that mid-level medical professionals posted at these centres can consult with doctors at the district headquarters. If a person like me is the Prime Minister of this country then it is also due to BR Ambedkar's efforts.

On January 5, Modi had asked officials to devote the coming three months in developing these backward districts.

He said the Centre has identified 115 most backward districts in the country to give a special focus on their development. "Ironically they remained backward despite huge natural resources available with them", Modi stated. "If the district administration, public representatives and the people join hands in a mass movement, unprecedented results can be achieved".

"I bow to the hope that the name of Babasaheb carries", said the PM on the day the nation celebrated the birth anniversary of the father of India's Constitution.
