Telangana Assembly’s Resolution Urges Centre to Name New Parliament Building After Ambedkar

 - Sakshi Post

Hyderabad: The Telangana Assembly on Tuesday adopted a resolution urging the Centre to name the newly-constructed Parliament building in New Delhi after B R Ambedkar. 

Minister for Municipal Administration and Urban Development and Industries KT Rama Rao, also known as KTR, moved the resolution in the House. The AIMIM and Congress party supported the resolution while the BJP legislator was not present in the House. Assembly Speaker P Srinivas Reddy announced the passing of the resolution unanimously by a voice vote.

All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) and Congress party supported the resolution while the BJP legislator was not present in the House. 

After moving the resolution, KTR said Dr BR Ambedkar, who is the architect of Indian Constitution, showed the direction to the country and it would be more appropriate to name the new Parliament building after him. 

KTR further said Ambedkar symbolised social justice, greatness of democracy and national integration. He recalled that Ambedkar fought against all kinds of discrimination and was a firm believer in equality. The TRS leader said their party and leader KCR followed the principles of Ambedkar to achieve Telangana state after a 14-year-long struggle.
