Ambedkar was born in Mhow cantonment town of Madhya Pradesh on April 14, 1891. The state government has built a grand memorial at his birth place.

"Modi is the first Prime Minister of the country to pay a visit to Ambedkar's birth place, Mhow," Ambedkar Social Science University, Mhow, Vice Chancellor R S Kureel claimed while talking to PTI.

The Prime Minister was accompanied by Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and other dignitaries on the occasion.

Modi took a look at the grand memorial and spent over 15 minutes there. He will later address a public meeting in Mhow and launch the 11-day-long 'Gram Uday Se Bharat Uday Abhiyan' (village self-governance campaign).

Earlier, the PM was accorded a warm welcome on his arrival at the Indore airport by Chief Minister Chouhan and state Health Minister Narottam Mishra. From Indore, Modi left for Mhow in a helicopter.
