The BSP also celebrated his Jayanti at all 72 district HQs with gaiety. At these functions, the people were also informed about various works conducted by BSP to honour Baba Saheb.
Similar programmes were also organised at the capitals of all the States, which were attended by a large number of BSP workers. The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji, at first, arrived at the Prateek Sthal situated on the bundh and paid floral tributes on the statue of Baba Saheb Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar. Thereafter, she arrived at the Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar Samajik Parivartan Sthal and paid floral tributes on the statue of Baba Saheb Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar installed at the main premises in the Abraham Lincoln pose.

Thereafter, she walked around the entire premises and paid floral tributes on the statues of the hero of the Bahujan Samaj Manyawar Sri Kanshiram ji and other great men as well.
Earlier, the Hon’ble Chief Minister ji addressed a large number of the followers of Baba Saheb Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar, ministers and people present at the Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar Samajik Parivartan Sthal. The Hon’ble Chief Minister, in her address, said that she felt proud to inform that Baba Saheb Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar was the Architect of the Indian Constitution and he made efforts to ensure that the deprived sections and victims of the varna system could lead a better life and become self sufficient. He also made arrangements in the Constitution to strengthen secularism in the country. She said that his contribution could not be forgotten and his name would be inscribed in golden letters in the history of the country.
The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that keeping the mammoth contribution of Baba Saheb Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar in view, the U.P. Government had accorded honour to them in various shapes. She said that her Government had taken a huge lead over Central Government as well as Governments of various States as far as honouring him was concerned. She made it clear that apart from the U.P. Government, the Central Government and Governments of other States had made very insignificant efforts to honour Baba Saheb Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar. She said that the history had already evaluated the works and thought of Baba Saheb Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar. She said that he was a great man and respected all over the world.
Ms. Mayawati ji said that Baba Saheb Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar was a very knowledgeable person as far as law was concerned and he was expert as it. She said that she was very impressed by it and herself (Hon’ble Chief Minister ji) studied law at Delhi University and got a degree of LLB. She said that her Government had watched the interests of Government and non- Government advocates, Hon’ble Judiciary and poor people of Sarva Samaj.
She said that few months ago the State Government had given a lot of facilities to Government counsels. Besides, the State Government had also watched the interests of non-Government advocates of the State. The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that the previous Governments talked tall but did not do anything for them. She said that the National General Secretary and currently the Chairman of the U.P. State Advisory Council Mr. Satish Chandra Mishra ji and her party MLC Mr. Gopal Narayan Mishra ji often said that she can do something for their welfare. The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that the previous Governments made several announcements for the welfare of Government Counsels and non-
Government advocates, but never made honest efforts to arrange budget for them. She said that it was evident that the previous Governments made these announcements just to mislead the advocates. She said that her Government always fulfilled its promises. The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji, on the occasion, announced that the State Government would provide Rs. 60 crore amount for the Nyasi Samiti for the welfare of advocates. This amount would be utilised for the insurance of the advocates, to provide pension to their widows, for the construction of new chambers of the advocates all over the State and to provide facility of library and computer in the bar association.
The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that the construction of new building of the Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court had been pending for long time now and the Government of India had not released its share so far. On this occasion, she announced to provide about Rs. 500 crore, 70 percent of the total expenditure on the construction of new building. She said if needed, the State Government would also make available the additional amount for this construction. The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji also announced to provide about Rs. 50 crore additional amount for library and other facilities for the judges of High Court, which would be made final after consultations with the Chief Justice.
The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that Government advocates would plead free of cost in the pending cases and the cases to be filed in favour of poor people in which Government is not opposite party. This decision would help the beneficiaries of Uttar Pradesh Mukhyamantri Mahamaya Garib Arthik Madad Yojna and BPL card holders in Uttar Pradesh. The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that with these announcements on the occasion of 120th anniversary of Baba Saheb Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar, all advocates, Courts and poor people of Sarva Samaj would definitely feel happy.
