The Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, believes it is a privilege for the BJP that after sustained efforts, success is being achieved to develop the sites related to Baba Saheb as ‘Panch Teerth’. The Prime Minister has visited these places on many occasions.

Union Minister of State Vijay Sampla said this while addressing a programme held to commemorate BR Ambedkar at Bajwara village.

He said whether it was Ambedkar’s birthplace Mahu or the initiative to purchase the land of Indu Mill in Maharashtra to develop a memorial on the ‘Chaitanya Bhumi’, developing the convocational place at the international-level in Nagpur or initiative to raise memorials at the Mahaparinirvana site of Baba Saheb in Delhi and at 15 Janpath. The government is devoted to develop the ‘Panch Teerth’.

He said besides the ‘Panch Teerth’, the Prime Minister inaugurated the Ambedkar Memorial on November 14, 2015, in London too. The Devendra Fadnavis government of Maharashtra bought that three-storied house, where Dr Ambedkar used to live and converted it into a museum by spending Rs 800 crore.”

“Baba Saheb has taught us that when we work with the integrity of the nation and the integrity of the society, our direction will always be right. That is why he has become the inspiration for all,” said Sampla. He said Bajwara was added to the ‘Prime Minister Adarsh Gram Yojana’ and RS 45 lakh were spent for the development of the village.

“Rs 14 lakh were spent on Bajwara from MPLAD fund for the development of the village. Keeping in view the history of Bajwara, it will be developed as a tourist place,” he added.

He urged the residents of the village to come forward and join hands with him for the cause.
