Hitting out at political parties for politicising the legacy of B R Ambedkar, Prime Minister Modi had earlier this month said that no regime had honoured the Dalit icon like his government had.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today travelled on the Delhi Metros busy Yellow Line to reach the venue of an event in north Delhis Civil Lines area.

Dr Ambedkar Mahaparinirvana Sthal at 26, Alipur Road was dedicated to the nation by former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee in December 2003.

"The Prime Minister's choice to launch his most ambitious programme of Ayushman Bharat from the tribal district that is counted among the most backward districts of the country and that too on the birth anniversary of Ambedkarji is very significant", Dinesh Kashyap, BJP MP from Bastar, told IANS. After resigning from the Union Cabinet on 1 November 1951, Dr. Ambedkar started residing in the house of Maharaja of Sirohi at 26, Alipur Road, Delhi where he breathed his last and attained Mahaparinirvana on 6 December 1956.

"Prime Minister @narendramodi had laid the foundation stone of the memorial on March 21, 2016".
