New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s attempt to woo the dalits continued as he hailed dalit icon B.R. Ambedkar’s contribution in realising the value of a vibrant maritime sector, saying his efforts augured well for the people of India. Mr Modi said that Dr Ambedkar’s efforts augured well for the people of India. He said the maritime sector in India, with its rich history, has the potential to power our nation’s transformation.

In a series of tweets on the National Maritime Day, Mr Modi said his government affirms its commitment to harness the  maritime strengths for the nation’s prosperity. “Our efforts for a vibrant maritime sector are inspired by Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar. It was Babasaheb who gave topmost importance to Jal Shakti, waterways, irrigation, canal networks and ports. His work in this sector augured extremely well for the people of India,” he said.
