Dr.Bhimrao Ambedkar talks to BBC Reporters in 1955


Dr. Ambedkar was interviewed by BCC reporters. He was 65 year old and  very ill at the time when he gave his interview. They asked  Ambedkar about “Gandhiji”. It was broadcasted on31 st December 1955.

You can listen to the talk: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdmO3tZNWaw

Speaker was a distinguished Constitutional Lawyer and Human Rights champion of the 21st Century who played an important role at the Round Table Conferences held in London . He was opposed to Gandhi’s policy relating to a separate electorate. Memories of the few times he had met Gandhi in 1929 and after the signing of the Poona Pact in jail. Feels as he saw Gandhi in the capacity of an opponent, he saw more of the real man than his devotees. Maintains he was “an episode” rather than “an epoch-maker”. Believes he deceived the people and was two-faced (double dealing) over caste.
