The DMK Working President MK Stalin alleged that the BJP-led Centre was hampering Ambedkar's ideals behind the making of the Constitution. They are also planning to honour Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath with the title of "Dalit Mitra". Security has been beefed up in Uttar Pradesh in view of Ambedkar Jayanti today to prevent any possible attempt at inciting violence, with political parties drawing up separate plans for the occasion.

Recalling Ambedkar's contributions to the country, Kovind said he had always adopted non-violent means to fight for the rights of SCs/STs, other weaker sections of the society and women.

The groups clashed last night, on the eve of Ambedkar's birth anniversary, over the installation of a board and renaming of a "chowk" (intersection) in Phagwara, the police said.
