Baripada: After reinstalling the statue of the leader, the Mayurbhanj district administration today organised the birth anniversary of Dr BR Ambedkar at Darogadahi in Baripada municipal area.
The statue of Dr Ambedkat was demolished during an eviction drive on April 6.
However another statue was reinstalled at the demolition site last night by the district administration over a newly built pillar.
District Collector Rajesh Prabhakar Patil, accompanied by the other officials of the district, garlanded the statue on the occasion of his birth day and offered floral tributes to the father of Indian Constitution.
A meeting was also organized at the conference hall of the district collector where people from different walks of life remembered the contributions of Baba Saheb.
A number of local people, however, resented the manner the Ambedkar statue was re-installed alleging that the administration could only arrange a makeshift statue with out putting a concrete umbrella and fencing the area.
The National Commission for Scheduled Caste (NCSC) is being moved by various people demanding an inquiry into the statue demolition incident.
