Governor C. Vidyasagar Rao and Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis were among those who paid tributes to the Dalit icon Dr Ambedkar at Chaityabhoomi in Dadar's Shivaji Park yesterday, observed as 'Mahaparinirvan Diwas' by his followers.



“The BMC made elaborate security arrangements, apart from constructing an 8,000 sq metres 'Bhojan mandap' for people who come from outside the city to pay their respects. The food was provided by social organisations. We have for the first time provided 200 mobile charging points for people," a civic official said.



The civic body has also made special arrangements to provide toilets and drinking water facilities, he added.
