In his address to the Parliamentary party, Modi also spoke about the upcoming birth anniversaries of BJP stalwart Atal Bihari Vajpayee and spiritual leader Swami Viveknanda, asking members to start projects which they deem fit on the former prime minister's birth day on December 25.

With BJP assiduously wooing Dalits, Modi said his government had given 'maxium respect' to Ambedkar as he spoke about the Centre organising a number of events related to Ambedkar, including the announcement of November 26 as the 'Constitution Day' and the launch of special coins to honour him.

Noting that the birth anniversary of Vivekananda, whom the prime minister has often referred to as an inspiration to him, is observed as the 'National Youth Day', he asked the party leaders to 'work overtime' to spread his vision and connect youths with BJP, sources said.

Modi also asked the MPs to start some welfare project in their constituency on Vajpayee's birth anniversary.
