India’s Foreign Minister attends Ambedkar anniversary at Indian Consulate, NY


The Indian Consulate in New York commemorated the 131st birth anniversary of B.R. Ambedkar, the author of India’s Constitution, April 14, 2022. The gathering was joined by India’s Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar who is on a visit to the United States engaging top U.S counterparts in the 2+2 dialogue in Washington, D.C.

Speaking at the event, FM Jaishankar stressed that Ambedkar’s views were even more relevant today as India celebrates the 75th year of its independence. And the best way to advance his vision and aspirations was to further the freedoms.

“The legacy that he gave us as the architect of India’s Constitution, which he bequeathed to us, has actually become even more valuable with the passage of time,” Jaishankar said, adding that Ambedkar’s aspirations “are actually the blueprint to guide us … and provide a compass for clarity,” as the world is again debating the virtues of democracy.
