Lakhs of people visited ‘Chaityabhoomi’ in Dadar on the occasion of the death anniversary of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar on Thursday.

A sea of humanity poured into Shivaji Park, where Dr. Ambedkar’s last rites were performed in 1956.

The event had given sleepless nights to the State administration officials owing to the makeshift memorial of deceased Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray, recently cremated a stone’s throw away from Chaityabhoomi.

Apart from the Mumbai Police personnel, many companies of the State Reserve Police Force and Riot Control Police were seen patrolling the area.
