Father of Indian Constitution, Dr. Bheemrao Ambedkar's name has been changed in Uttar Pradesh (UP). As per UP government orders, the Dalit leader's name will henceforth be read as Dr. Bheemrao 'Ramji' Ambedkar. The change was suggested by UP Governor, Ram Naik, who wrote to Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi for approval. The state government has ordered that the name change should be initiated in all the records, old and new. Ramji is the name of Ambedkar's father. It is the practice in Maharashtra to use the father's name after one's own name.
