Anti-CAA protests: In Mumbai, hundreds march from Five Gardens in Matunga to Chaityabhoomi in Dadar on Women's Day eve
Hundreds of women from different organisations in Maharashtra participated in a march against the CAA, NRC and NPR at Matunga in central Mumbai on Saturday
After renaming Oshiwara, an upcoming railway station in the Western line of Mumbai suburban railway, to Ram Mandir, the Maharashtra BJP government on Friday passed a resolution to change the name of Elphinstone Road railway station to Prabhadevi.
For the Dalit and the socially backward citizens of our country — many crores of them — this day marks the loss of their ‘Father’, Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar
Instead of London, the Maharashtra government could work to build a memorial to Dr Ambedkar at his Mumbai home.
Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan and former deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar were among the leaders who paid homage to Ambedkar at 'Chaityabhoomi'.
Over 700 followers of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar today forcefully entered the premises of Indu Mill in Dadar in central Mumbai, demanding the mill land be allotted for the construction of Dr Ambedkar's memorial.
A day before Ambedkar Jayanti, 72,000 pay homage at his cremation spot, and other news.
The call to rename Dadar Station as Chaityabhoomi is nothing but pure politics. It has nothing to do with honouring the memory of Ambedkar. It's good that Raj Thackeray, for his own political reasons, has opposed this form of tokenism.
