BJP government saffronises BR Ambedkar's statue in Uttar Pradesh's Badaun

The damaged statue of Dalit icon and father of the Indian Constitution Dr BR Ambedkar, which was rebuilt with a saffron-colour coat a couple of days ago in Uttar Pradesh's Badaun, was repainted blue on Tuesday. "Our first priority was to install the statue, so we did not bother about the colour", he said adding a request that the administration should paint it a blue since it had been installed.

The statues of Ambedkar are usually in black or blue coat dress across the country. Later the Hajj House was repainted after much protest. The demonstrators lifted the dharna after an assurance from the district and police administration to replace the statue with a new one. Another Ambedkar statue here was vandalised in 2014.

However, others like Kalicharan, the head of Ambedkar Suraksha Samiti, were not ready to accept the saffron colour.
