Inder Raj and Anil Kumar Lamdharia, President and General Secretary respectively of Dr Ambedkar Study Circle were also present on the occasion. A cake cutting ceremony was organized to end the celebration on a merry note.

 An annual festival in India, Ambedkar Jayanti is celebrated to commemorate the birth anniversary of Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar who is a social reformer, economist, jurist, and the architect of India's Constitution.

 As many as 1000 people gathered at the event in which lectures were delivered highlighting the contributions of Dr BR Ambedkar who promoted the notion of equality in the society. On the occasion, CWT founder Satnam Singh Sandhu, paid tribute to Bhim Rao Ambedkar and said that Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar is remembered as the man of great moral character who advocated equality throughout his life and Constitution is his greatest gift to the nation. “The Indian constitution, whose main architect was Dr BR Ambedkar, is the custodian of the rights of Indian citizens. The constitution ensures the equal rights to all the citizens that is why this day is also celebrated as equality day,” he said.

 Satnam Singh Sandhu also said that the present Modi government’s mission of ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’ is also based on the ideology of BR Ambedkar.


Baisakhi celebration held

 Satnam Singh Sandhu also participated in the Baisakhi Samagam that was held at the Gurudwara Sant Sar Sahib in sector 38-west. Around 1000 people participated to celebrate the festival which is a prominent day celebrated by the Sikh community. The festival holds great significance in the historical and religious context of Punjab. The incident of Khalsa Sajna on 13 April 1699 is a revolutionary achievement, which commemorates the formation of Khalsa sect of warriors by tenth Guru of the Sikhs, Shri Guru Gobind Singh. The word ‘Khalsa’, which means pure and free, in itself explains the objective of the Khalsa Panth, which was formed for to instill valor and confidence in the people to fight against tyranny and unite them as one by eradicating the growing caste system and discrimination in the society.

 On the occasion, siropa, a robe of honour, was also bestowed upon Satnam Singh Sandhu, at the Gurudwara. “The Baisakhi festival is an important day for Sikh community. The festival however, gives us the message of communal harmony and brotherhood,” said Satnam Singh Sandhu while extending his best wishes on the Baiskahi festival.

 Meanwhile, Sandhu also visited the Gurudwara Bhagat Ravidas ji in Manimajra to commemorate the 132nd birth anniversary of Dr BR Ambedkar. Langar was also served during the event where Sukhmani Sahib path was also recited.
