Dr B R Ambedkar’s enormous knowledge is the reason behind the efficiency of our constitution. He was well versed with each and every pages of human history, said former minister V Srinivas Prasad.
He was speaking after inaugurating a seminar titled ‘Contemporary India and our constitution’ organised by Mysuru Ratna Samskrithika Prathistana at Rotary auditorium, JLB road, Mysuru. He said that soon after India’s independence, poverty, illiteracy and superstitions prevailed. British officers had made fun of India as to how would one run such a country. But Dr B R Ambedkar showed the entire world what an Indian can accomplish, he said.
