Thiruvananthapuram: Former Gujarat DGP R.B. Sreekumar, in an open letter to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, has called upon the State Government to use 'Ambedkarism' as the tool to design projects and programmes for the disenfranchised.

Surat in south Gujarat is one of the major centres of diamond cutting and polishing industry. This happened following rumour that a diamond trader carrying a packet of polished diamonds lost some pieces of the precious stone on the road due to damages in the packet during transit.
