He said, “Our government is your government. We are working for your empowerment. Financial inclusion is at the core of our focus. We want to create job-creators, not job-seekers.”     

While inaugurating the conference Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, “We all know Baba Saheb as the man behind our Constitution, but not many know him as a master economist."         

The conference is being organised by the Dalit Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DICCI), on the occasion of 125th birth anniversary of father of the Indian constitution Dr BR Ambedkar.        

Quoting Ambedkar, PM Modi said, “Babasaheb rightly said that industrialisation will give maximum benefit to our Dalit sisters and brothers.”

The programme, which is being conducted to seek the support from the Centre in promoting entrepreneurship among Dalits, is being attended by more than 1200 Dalit entrepreneurs.            

Prime Minister Modi has initiated several measures to boost entrepreneurship among youth, and especially among Dalits.
