Government sources here said that instructions have been forwarded to all government offices, ensuring that the records have full name of Dr Ambedkar, which include his father Ramji's name as middle name.

The Yogi Adityanath government has made a decision to introduce "Ramji" as the middle name of the Father of the Constitution B R Ambedkar in all official correspondence and records, an order that has raised Opposition hackles ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

The order, passed on the recommendation of Governor Ram Naik, was issued on Wednesday night by principal secretary (admin) Jitendra Kumar, an official spokesman said in Lucknow on Thursday. Why create a controversy unnecessarily?

Reacting to the development, the Samajwadi Party accused the state government of politicising the Dalit icon. "The Dalit community has expressed its displeasure", BJP parliamentarian Udit Raj has said, news agency ANI reported. Deepak Mishra, an SP leader, felt that the move to change the name was a mere political strategy to change the perception of the ruling government from being anti-Ambedkar. While its English spelling is correct, the spelling will have to change in Hindi, as will the pronunciation.

The governor, who has been campaigning since past year to "correct" the name, reportedly wrote to PM Modi and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath that even Dr Ambedkar used his full name in his signature.

Ramji was the name of Dr Ambedkar's father. "As per common practice in Maharashtra, father's name is used as a middle name for sons", Dr Lalji Prasad Nirmal, the director of Babasaheb Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar Mahasabha was quoted by Times of India.
