On December 7, Prime Minister Modi is going to inaugurate the Dr Ambedkar International Centre at 15 Janpath, Delhi. "Then nothing happened for 23 years... when our government came we not only laid its foundation in April 2015 but are also dedicating it to the nation today", he said.

PM Modi added that the government had developed five places related to Baba Saheb Ambedkar into pilgrimage spots.

He said that the BHIM App for digital transactions, is the Union Government's homage to the economic vision of Dr. Ambedkar. In this context, he mentioned the sites at Alipur in Delhi; Mhow in Madhya Pradesh; Indu Mill in Mumbai; Deeksha Bhumi in Nagpur; and the house in London. The centre is made on fusion of Buddhist and present day architecture.

Prime Minister paid tributes to the leader before he heads out for Gujarat.
