After christening parks in the name of Dalit icons and installing
their statues, Uttar Pradesh government on Saturday decided to name
state awards for small industrialist, craftsman and export after
Bhimrao Ambedkar and BSP founder Kanshiram.

A proposal to name these awards given by the government was passed
during a meeting of the state cabinet which was chaired by Chief
Minister Mayawati.

The small industrialist state award scheme will be renamed as Baba
Saheb Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar Small Industrialist State Award scheme.

Similarly, state award given to special craftsman will be remaned as
Baba Saheb Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar Special Craftsman state award scheme.

Export award has been named after BSP founder Kanshiram.

"These prominent personalities had made an important contribution to
upliftment of the country and the society. The decision taken by the
cabinet will not only enhance the prestige of the awards but also the
persons getting them will feel proud," a government spokesman said.
