THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: State Institute of Languages has contributed 40 volumes of the works of B R Ambedkar to the research centre at the Kesari Journalists Trust here on Wednesday. Presenting the books, Cultural Affairs Minister K C Joseph said in spite of various amendments to the Constitution, the fact is that the basic structure of the Constitution had not been affected.

This is a reflection of the stature of B R Ambedkar who is known as the architect of the country’s Constitution.

 He said the country’s Constitution was a model to the whole world. Joseph said Ambedkar’s works unravelled the sufferings of oppressed classes like Dalits.

 He said efforts were on to establish the Malayalam university and get classical status to the Malayalam language. The government is also keen on implementing the decision to take over the house of late Sukumar Azhikode and make it as a museum.  Information and PRD director A Firoz  received the complete works of Ambedkar for the research centre. Speaking on the occasion, State Institute of Languages Director M R Thampan said as Kerala was the first state to get all the works by Ambedkar translated into Malayalam, the Ambedkar Foundation had offered to consider granting an Ambedkar Chair at the State Institute of Languages.  

KUWJ district president Siby Kattampally presided over the function. District secretary Suresh Vellimangalam welcomed the gathering and treasurer N P Jasheer proposed a vote of thanks.
