HMR installs Dr Ambedkar’s stratus at KP ‘Y’ Junction

Hyderabad, Nov 26 : A newly installed statue of Dr.B.R.Ambedkar at the improved Ambedkar ‘Y’Junction at Kukatpally was unveiled by the Union Minister of State for Road Transport & Highways Sarvey Sathyanarayana in the presence of Peddapalli MP G Vivekanand, Kukatpally MLA Dr.Jayaprakash Narayan and HMR MD NVS Reddy at a function organised by Dalit Aikya Vedika, Kukatpally here on Tuesday. The installation of statue and Junction improvement were done by Hyderabad Metro Rail Ltd.

Unveiling the statue, Sarvey Satyanarayana appreciated HMR for taking care of the sentiments of SC, ST & BC communities and accommodating their request for installation of a good bronze statue of Dr.Ambedkar and improving the `Y’ Junction. Along with Vivekanand and Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan, the Minister specifically appreciated the efforts being made by HMR MD NVS Reddy in enlisting the cooperation of all sections of the city in solving the contentious issues and speedily implementing the Metro Rail project.

Speaking on the occasion, NVS Reddy acknowledged the proactive role played by the dalit organisations in accommodating the Metro Rail alignment at several places by agreeing to relocate the idols of their community deities and the statues of Dr.B.R.Ambedkar. He stated that it will be acknowledged in a special chapter on the role of dalit communities in implementation of the Hyderabad Metro Rail project in a book on the Metro project to be penned by him after its successful completion.

The true spirit of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity as envisaged by Dr.Ambedkar in the Indian Constitution will be reflected in Metro travel as the Metro trains equalise everybody and a poor worker and a high profile corporate executive travel in the same AC coach sitting next to each other, added NVS Reddy.
