PM launches BHIM-Aadhaar application

Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the BHIM-Aadhaar in Nagpur on Friday on the occasion of the 126th birth anniversary of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, and hoped that the digital platform would be an “economic giant” like the Constitution, through which Dr. Ambedkar empowered the common man.

Mr. Modi said, “Like Shiva [a Hindu god], Dr. Ambedkar also drank the poison of hatred all his life but he did not carry even the slightest of bitterness neither in the Indian Constitution nor in his speeches. Today, we are trying to give a new system on his birth anniversary.”
