TN declares april 14th as 'equality day'

Chief Minister MK Stalin has on Wednesday announced in the Assembly under Rule 110 that April 14, the birthday of Ambedkar, will be celebrated as Equality Day.
Addressing the Assembly session, CM Stalin said, “Ambedkar is the rising sun of equality in the North; He served as the one who was the Eastman in the lives of many; A fighter who balanced the ups and downs of society through education, law, and political upheaval.”

He praised the deeds of Ambedkar and his contributions to society.
A high-level awareness and monitoring committee meeting was held yesterday on behalf of the Adi Dravidar and Tribal Welfare Department. The meeting called for the celebration of Ambedkar's birthday, April 14, as 'Equality Day', just as Periyar’s birthday had declared 
as 'Social Justice Day'.

His birthday will be celebrated as Equality Day and a pledge will be taken, Stalin said. He also mentioned that the government has accepted the request of Thirumavalavan, the chief of Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi. He then announced, “His full-size statue will be installed in the mani mandapam. Further, selected books of Ambedkar will also be translated into Tamil and published. 

“A.Raja, DMK MP and former Union Minister praised the translation of Periyar's texts into 21 languages ​​and demanded that the selected texts of Annal Ambedkar be translated and updated as an opportunity to read them in Tamil. That request was accepted and I am pleased to announce that the Government of Tamil Nadu will publish a selection of Ambedkar's books in Tamil.

This House is not only aware that the purpose of social justice is to achieve equality, and that these two are the two eyes of our goal; The entire Indian subcontinent knows. I would like to inform you that what is happening now is a regime that will immediately consider any request to achieve the highest status of all Tamils.” Thus he said. It is noteworthy that On September 17, 2021, Stalin had announced the 143rd birth anniversary of leader 
EV Ramasamy, popularly known as Periyar, as Social Justice Day. 

He also administered a pledge to officials and staff at the Secretariat, affirming that they will follow the social activist's ideology based on social justice, self-respect, rationalism and equality.
