PM visits Jaguar Land Rover manufacturing unit
The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today unveiled a Basaveshwara Statue at Lambeth in London.
Speaking on the occasion, the Prime Minister said he was deeply pained by the terror attacks in Paris yesterday. He said this was not just an attack on the people of France, but on all of humanity, and the time had come for all humanitarian forces from across the world to unite to fight this global menace. He said it was imperative that the United Nations finalises a definition of terrorism.
The Prime Minister described Basaveshwara as a great philosopher and social reformer, who had fought against social evils of his time, and worked for the strengthening of democracy at the grassroots.
The Prime Minister inaugurated the Dr. Ambedkar Memorial at King Henry’s Road in London. He lit a candle in front of Dr. Ambedkar’s bust. He unveiled a plaque to mark the dedication of the Memorial. “This is the sacred spot where Dr. Ambedkar pursued his quest for knowledge, overcoming all the difficulties and the barriers placed before him,” the Prime Minister wrote in the Visitors’ Book. “I bow to the great man who worked ceaselessly for the oppressed sections of society,” he added.
The Prime Minister visited the Jaguar-Land Rover Manufacturing unit at Solihull.
