Babasaheb statue premises at Tank Bund used to be strewn with posters, banners, cut-outs etc., Erstwhile SCI cleaned up the area to declare, “This is sacred place for the sarvajanas, no posters, banners, hoardings be displayed here”. The premises now is exclusive with Babasaheb Statue.
Babasaheb statue gets garlanded here every day by a dedicated PBI team.
On 15th of August Babasaheb launched the first political party, the Independent Labour Party (ILP) in 1936.
To commemorate his political vision, the PBI decided to Hoist the Blue Flag every year on the 15th of August at his statue at Tank Bund, Hyderabad.
