The constitution of India
After the independence of the country, the Constituent Assembly of India was formed. The Constituent Assembly had a total of 379 members, of which 15 were women. The President of the Constituent Assembly was Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar. It was a big deal in those times when untouchability and caste and caste were considered, then an untouchable person got an influential position. According to many experts, Babasaheb was selected in the Constituent Assembly because of his administrative efficiency and political influence.
Ambedkar was elected as the head of the drafting committee that was formed for the making of the constitution. In fact, when Nehru had presented an outline of the objectives of the Constituent Assembly, Jayakar, then another member, opined that no motion could be voted on without a representative of the Muslim League. On this Ambedkar also intervened for the first time and gave his opinion. Many Congress leaders were impressed by his advice.
