Goa accords state-level status to Ambedkar Jayanti function


Panaji: Goa chief minister Pramod Sawant on Friday announced that his government will accord state-level status for the function annually organized to mark Ambedkar Jayanti.
Sawant said that at present, a function is held annually in association with State Social Welfare Department and like-minded organizations.
“I do hereby announce that the function of Ambedkar Jayanti will be accorded state level status from next year onwards,” he said.
The chief minister was addressing a function organised to commemorate the day.
Sawant said that the State government had acquired a land to construct Ambedkar Bhavan near Panaji but the acquisition was stalled due to technical reasons.
He revealed that the State government has already acquired another plot at Housing Board in Porvorim where Ambedkar Bhavan will take shape. “The foundation stone for Ambedkar Bhavan would be laid soon,” he added.
