Mumbai: The civic-run Shatabdi Hospital in Kandivali (Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Municipal Hospital) has finally got the approval of setting up a full-size statue of Bharat Ratna Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar.  On October 9, the Brihanmumbai Municipal corporation approved the proposal which was floated by Gopal Shetty, Member of Parliament (MP) for building a statue of Dr Ambedkar in the hospital premises. The approval came in correspondence with the Municipal Commissioner Ajoy Mehta. The proposal was presented in July 2018 in front of the Law Committee. However, due to loopholes in the proposal, it was sent back. Shetty said, “This 11-foot statue is in the final phase of installation and will be unveiled on the death anniversary of Dr Ambedkar.”
