Important role in removing caste discrimination

In fact, he himself had seen and experienced caste discrimination very closely in his childhood. His father was in the army and when he retired, he settled in Satara, Maharashtra. Here, when Bhimrao was admitted to a school, he was called an untouchable caste and was made to sit in a corner of the school.
In such a situation, Bhimrao decided that he would continue his education and fight for this evil. Bhimrao pursued higher education in America and London and became a barrister. When the country became independent, Bhimrao was made the Law Minister in Pandit Nehru’s cabinet. After this Bhimrao played an important role in constitutional matters. In his life, he did a lot of work towards providing justice to Dalits, backward people and women. He was in favor of equality.
