It is pertinent to mention that Maharashtra Government has released guidelines for the simple celebration of Dr BR Ambedkar’s birth anniversary on April 14 amid rising Covid-19 cases in the state. The government has urged Dr Ambedkar’s followers to celebrate it between 7 am and 8 pm without crowding.

The government has banned the processions, bike rallies and prabhat pheris. Instead, the government has suggested the followers not more than five can garland Dr Ambedkar’s statue keeping social distancing and adhering to all norms.
