According to media reports the local council are due to decide if the house, known as ‘Ambedkar House’, can operate as a museum in memory of Dr. Ambedker, who is considered to be one of the founding fathers of modern India after helping create the country’s constitution. Council due to decide on the future use of Ambedkar House, London, United Kingdom – 30 Aug 2019

End of Ambedkar House London  (AHL) inquiry yesterday. Site visit arranged for 16th Oct. AHL forum played a useful part, causing some excitement with new crucial evidence of Dr Ambedkar’s connection to AHL, which the council barrister requested but the High commission witnesses, including the academic was unable to provide. The High commission Q.C. appreciated AIM London’s efforts in digging out useful info (including letters written by Babasaheb proving minimum length of his stay at AHL)  that I had the privilege of submitting almost at the last minute.

Media is surprisingly quiet after the big hype of possibility of AHL closure, except one small tweet by a witness. 

“End of enquiry”

Just waiting for the decision by the Secretary of state. I am hopeful of a positive outcome.
