Governor pays tribute to Mahatma Gandhi
SRINAGAR, OCTOBER 1: On the eve of Gandhi Jayanti Governor Satya Pal Malik has paid rich tributes to the Father of the Nation.
In a message, Governor has recalled the Mahatma’s monumental contribution to the prolonged struggle for securing freedom from the British colonial rule; his lifelong campaigns against social injustice, racism and suppression of the under-privileged sections of society; and his unending pursuit for the establishment of a truly secular and harmonious society.
He described Gandhiji as a true messenger of peace and a staunch believer of non-violence whose sacrifices and teachings are indelibly imprinted on the global conscience.
Governor observed that the most befitting tribute which can be paid to the Father of Nation would be to revive his values and teachings by re-invigorating and strengthening the bonds of communal harmony, brotherhood and amity, establishing grass root level self governing institutions and a truly secular environment all over the country.
