Prime Minister Narendra Modi today paid tributes to the architect of the Constitution B R Ambedkar on his death anniversary.

Ambedkar, who was hailed for his contribution towards uplift of Dalits, passed away on this day in 1956.

"I bow to Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar on his Mahaparinirvan Diwas," the prime minister said on Twitter.

In Mumbai, rich tributes were today paid to the architect of the Constitution, B R Ambedkar, on his 61st death anniversary by thousands of followers who converged at his memorial Chaityabhoomi here.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, who visited Chaityabhoomi near Shivaji Park in Dadar this morning, said the work on Ambedkar's memorial at the Indu Mill land here will begin in a



month.Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao also paid tributes to Ambedkar at Chaityabhoomi.

The rain soaked ground at Chaityabhoomi after yesterday's rainfall - the highest December rain in Mumbai in 50 years - did not deter the followers of Ambedkar who gathered from various parts of the state and country.

Those thronging the place shouted slogans like 'Jai Bheem' and 'Babasaheb amar rahe'.

Three persons were yesterday injured when a pandal, set up for Ambedkar's followers, collapsed on them due to heavy rains at Shivaji Park.

At Mantralaya, the state Secretariat, floral tributes were offered to the late leader.

At Vidhan Bhawan, the Legislature staff also paid tributes to Ambedkar.
