Babasaheb Ambedkar’s influence was not merely restricted to India’s domestic policies but is also reflected in India’s commitment as a development partner. Dedicated to this and various other aspects of Ambedkar’s policies, Leaving No One Behind was an initiative by the Permanent Mission of India to the United Nations.
Syed Akbaruddin, Permanent Representative of India to the UN shared that they organize the event annually to commemorate observance of Babasaheb’s birth celebrations. During the event they had speakers speaking on different aspects of his global vision be it financial, social, legal or developmental.
The idea of the event was to bridge the gap between the government and citizens so that the community can be aware of benefit from the policies released by the government. The theme reflected the overall vision of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar for equality, social justice and empowerment of the poor and the marginalized sections of the society.
With senior UN officials, diplomats academia, civil society and private sector from India the event was a huge hit.
