Patna, April 14: The Bihar Government on Saturday announced to introduce Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar’s middle name ‘Ramji’ in government and court documents.
The move comes on the 127th birth anniversary of the Dalit icon.
The Bihar Government took this decision a month after Yogi Adityanath-led government decided to add Ambedkar’s middle name ‘Ramji’ in state records.
Last December, the campaign to write Ambedkar’s name correctly was initiated by Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik.
Popularly known as ‘Father of the Constitution of India’, Ambedkar was an Indian jurist, economist, politician and social reformer who inspired the Dalit Buddhist Movement.
