Saffron statue of Ambedkar in UP painted blue

Vandalised Ambedkar statue rebuilt turns saffron in Uttar Pradesh's Badaun

The statue of the father of constitution, Dr BR Ambedkar, was seen in saffron color and was covered with marigold garlands at a village in Uttar Pradesh called Badaun. The new saffron statue was installed by the district administration of Badaun in UP. Ambedkar's statues anywhere in India depict him dressed in a blue-colour coat. He many a times said: "Saffron represents purity... can someone deny the existence of the sun which is also saffron... people questioning all these are narrow-minded".

Very soon after the act, a group of workers came at the spot and repainted the statue in blue color. According to the reports, the opposition accused the BJP of "saffronising" Ambedkar. But when the statue was unveiled by BSP leaders in the presence of large numbers of Dalits, they were shocked to find that it was painted in saffron colour instead of the usual blue.

Recently, the Yogi government had kicked up another row when it had ordered for adding "Ramji" in the name of Dr Ambedkar in government correspondence and records.

It was the only truck that his father owned and the accident took away the only source of income for the family in 2010. Chanu smashed the CWG record with every lift and even broke her personal record and remained in a league of her own.

The statue was vandalised on Saturday sending the district administration officials into a tizzy. But then BSP district president himself led a bunch of his supporters and repainted it blue.

The Hindu activists have reportedly painted the newly developed statue of Ambedkar, after vandalizing, in the saffron color to show their aggression against the protest held on April 2.

Saffron is the favourite colour of BJP and the Yogi Adityanth government. This has included using saffron paint for the chief minister's office, police stations and even public buses.
