India’s Tallest Ambedkar Statue

The chief minister previously said that the statue to be inaugurated by him will be India’s tallest statue of Ambedkar. It has been built next to the state secretariat, opposite to Buddha statue, and located beside the Telangana Martyrs Memorial. He said it would inspire people daily and motivate the entire state administration.

He told his ministers and officials that the unveiling ceremony of the Ambedkar statue should be held on a grand scale with the entire Telangana and the country celebrating the occasion in a big manner.

It took at least two years to finalise technical and manufacturing measures after the decision was taken by KCR to erect the Ambedkar statue, PTI reported. The Telangana Chief Minister had praised the sculptor 98-year-old Ram Vanji Sutar for undertaking such a humongous effort.

Arrangements were made to ensure that over 35,000 people from all 119 constituencies of the state attend the Ambedkar statue unveiling, with 300 people expected from each constituency. As many as 750 state-run Road Transport Corporation buses were to be operated to bring the public to the event.

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Friday unveiled the 125-ft tall statue of B R Ambedkar in Hyderabad to celebrate on a grand scale the birth anniversary of the architect of the Constitution. Flower petals were showered from a helicopter on the statute paying floral tributes to Ambedkar. His grandson Prakash Ambedkar is invited as the sole chief guest at the event.

According to the news agency PTI, the Chief Minister recently met with his Ministers and officials to discuss the inauguration of the giant Ambedkar statue, the opening of the new Secretariat building complex and other matters.

It was decided that flower petals would be showered from a helicopter on the statute paying floral tributes to Ambedkar.
