LUCKNOW: "Ramji" will be inserted as the middle name of Bhimrao Ambedkar, the man
who drafted India's constitution, in Uttar Pradesh. The state government has ordered
that all documents and records, old and new, should refer to the icon as Bhimrao Ramji
Ambedkar.

The name change was apparently suggested by another "Ram" -- UP Governor Ram Naik --
who had written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently.

"Ramji", which is also used officially in Maharashtra, is the name of BR Ambedkar's father.

The governor, who has been campaigning since last year to "correct" the name, reportedly
wrote to PM Modi and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath that even Dr Ambedkar used his full
name in his signature.

He also suggested that the spelling of the name in Hindi should be amended to reflect its
correct pronunciation -- Aambedkar

The UP government order refers to the name by which Dr Ambedkar is listed as Bhimrao Ramji
Ambedkar.

The opposition Samajwadi Party in UP has accused the Yogi government of dragging the
iconic name into politics just to show people that it is pro-Dalit. "BJP and Yogi
government are afraid of the Samajwadi-Mayawati alliance. BJP always comes up with
new issues as soon as they realise their failure," said the party's Sunil Sajan.
