19 April, Ferozepur
Punjab Chief Minister Mr Parkash Singh Badal has said that the Chief Architect of Indian Constitution Baba Sahib Dr BR Ambedkar had taken due care for enshrining the federal structure of polity in the Indian constitution but Congress leadership from time to time diluted this very fundamental principle of the Indian constitution for their own vested interests.
Addressing the gathering during a state level function to mark the 124th birth anniversary of Dr BR Ambedkar at Ferozepur, he described Baba Sahib, a great statesman and an icon of weaker sections of society.
The Chief Minister said that apart from upgrading the infrastructure in all the government schools, six new schools have been opened for the bright students of the weaker sections.
Badal said that the state government was providing free education to these students along with boarding and lodging facilities.
