Nagpur: The monument rich Second Capital City of Nagpur would be adding one more feature of significance to its glory. Country’s first ever Samvidhan Preamble Park is coming up in city. It will be developed in the premises of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar College of Law at a cost of Rs 10 crore collected through public participation.
The concept in the brainchild of Registrar of Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU) Puran Meshram and Deputy Registrar (Academic) Dr Anil Hirekhan. Meshram and Dr Hirekhan said “We have Samvidhan Chowk in Nagpur, we have Deekshabhoomi. This is the place where Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar had taken Deeksha. It was his Karmabhoomi also. So, we thought that such park should be established and which can be the better place than Law College as Dr Babasaheb himself was a Barister.”
The present gate of the college will be re-constructed with two beautifully decorated pillars at each side. The board will have name of the college as well as Samvidhan Preamble Park along with the image of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar. The path from the Amravati Road inside college would go straight to the park, at the extreme corner of which, will stand 7.5 feet statue of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar. The Park will have beautiful lawn and sitting arrangement for the common public. There will be seven digital boards placed in circle around the lawn. Theseven values including Justice, Equality, Liberty, Fraternity etc will be written on the boards. If one touches the board, a detail description of the values will appear on that board. A special type of light effect will be there in the park that will make it look beautiful during night hours. The walls will be made of special type so that to get it cleaned in easier way. The 7.5 feet statue of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar will be the star attraction of the park. It will replace the present bust of Dr Ambedkar.
