"Let us not limit Babasaheb Ambedkar as a Dalit leader only, as he was much more than that. He was the one who gave us our Constitution and worked hard to see that everyone gets equal opportunity. He was a true national icon and true patriot. He was an international leader," Patel said at an award distribution ceremony held here.
The ceremony was conducted as part of Ambedkar's 125th birth anniversary celebrations by the Gujarat government. The Gujarat Chief Minister also asked people to walk the path shown by Ambedkar and come out of the age-old traditions and social evils.
"I believe that only education cannot eradicate social evils and superstition from the society. Even today, people who are doctors are not ready to go for inter-caste marriages. We have to change our mindset to bring revolution," she added.
