β€œThe place for installing the statue had been finalised ten years ago, but no steps were taken on ground due to politics,” said All India Adivasi Sena (AIAS) chief, D N Ughade.

He said the issue was being neglected even after change of guard in Maharashtra after the defeat of the Congress-NCP government.

β€œI will sit on hunger strike in front of Mantralaya from Friday. I want government to take a decision on installation of the statue before April 14, the birth anniversary of Ambedkar,” he said.
