BR Ambedkar is now 'exemplary figure' in Californian

From Amrik Singh article:  
  • In May 2011 California State Assembly adopted a Resolution in recognition of Dr. Ambedkar’s struggle for civil rights to lower castes and minorities of India.  California State Assembly Member Ms. Mariko Yamada, a signatory to the resolution states, “Resolved, That the California State Assembly-- 
(1) Celebrates along with all Californians of Indian descent the 120th birth anniversary of Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar, which fell on April 14 of 2011; and

(2) Recognizes Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar as an exemplary figure in the struggle for human rights and civil liberties for oppressed people around the world.”
  • In June 2011 Citrus Heights City Council signed a Proclamation to commemorate Dr. Ambedkar’s genius.  Council Members Jayna Karpinski-Costa and Steve Miller personally came to announce the Proclamation on behalf of the City Council.
