Congress President Sonia Gandhi today hailed B R Ambedkar as one of the greatest icons of Modern India and said his life is a guiding light to all Indians who want to live together. Greeting fellow citizens on Ambedkar Jayanti, Gandhi said ‘Babasaheb’ was indeed one of the greatest icons of Modern India and his contribution to the making of India as a nation shall always remain undisputed.

“Dr. B R Ambedkar’s life is a guiding light to all us Indians who want to live together, united and under the shade of our Constitutional laws and ethos.
“The Indian Constitution is a living affirmation of the inclusive cohesiveness and guarantees for equality that Babasaheb envisaged,” she said in a statement. Paying tributes to one of the greatest sons of India and a champion of social equality and democracy, Gandhi said that the path of social democracy shown by Babasaheb shall forever remain relevant.
