Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar who was popularly known as baba saheb ambedkar born on 14th April 1891, Madhya Pradesh. He was the 1st minister of law and justice. He played a great role of building the Constitution of India. Ambedkar was a man of honor who fought his whole life for dalits and other low caste people who were considered untouchable by upper class hindus. To protect their rights he reserved seats for dalits in every sector. Back then dalits were severely oppressed by brahmins and other upper castes. To reduce this discrimination and to make sure all kinds of people from all over India could get equal rights, he devoted his life. In his 129th birthday MLM Soft and team pay respect to this great person.
