Advisor Sharma, CS greet people on Gandhi Jayanti

Advisor to Lt Governor, KK Sharma Thursday extended greetings to the people on the 151st birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

In his message, the Advisor said that the philosophy as preached by the icon has more relevance in today’s context and we should steadfastly follow it. “The concept of self-reliant nation and ahimsa is being recognized as a means for achieving economic and spiritual objectives of the our great country,” Advisor Sharma in his message said.

Meanwhile, the Chief Secretary, B V R Subrahmanyam, extended greetings to the people on the 151st birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

In his message on the eve of Gandhi Jayanti, the Chief Secretary said “the ideology of Gandhism emphasizes on self-reliance to be achieved through self rule.”

Taking inspiration from his preaching, the CS said, that the concept of back to village has been developed and is beginning from today as a mark of respect to the inspirational leader.

Urging the Gram Panchayats to enthusiastically participate in B2V3, the Chief Secretary said that the achievements made under the recently concluded Jan Abhiyan / Awami Muhim will be evaluated by the visiting officers who are mandated with the task to assess the needs and requirements of the Gram Panchayats towards developing them into a truly empowered local self-governance model.
