Ghazipur (UP): Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha addressed the birth anniversary celebration of Mahamana Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya and Atal Bihari Vajpayee today at Mahamana Inter College, Ghazipur.
According to an official press release, paying tributes to Malaviya and former Prime Minister Vajpayee, the LG said vision and values of the two great personalities continue to guide us on the path of peace and progress.
“Mahamana and Atal Ji dedicated their lives in the service of the nation. Mahamana made an unparalleled contribution to build strong national character in youth, and women empowerment, and Atal-ji laid the foundation for the modernization of India & the progress of its people,” said the LG.
Remembering their significant contribution to nation-building, the LG said, “Mahamana and Atal-ji were instrumental in making development a powerful people’s movement. They created a new future for the country. It is our resolve to march together and realize their dream of making India a developed nation.”
He also said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given “concrete shape to Mahamana and Atal-ji’s resolve for a progressive India. Today, inclusive development and consistent systemic reforms brought massive changes in all sections and sectors, making a positive impact in the lives of many.”
“Hon’ble Prime Minister has ensured good governance translates into inclusive growth for all and socio-economic development raises people’s living standard. Disparities across the sectors have been removed and the government is successfully fulfilling people’s aspirations,” said the LG.
The fourth industrial revolution, transformation in agriculture, and National Education Policy have opened new vistas of endless possibilities in livelihood generation and economic and individual growth. Today, India has become the fastest-growing economy and is confident to achieve bigger goals, he added.
“Jammu and Kashmir is also on the move with the commitment to establish peace and bring prosperity in the lives of all. We are developing Aspirational Town & Aspirational Panchayat to ensure benefits of progress and development in the country reach every household in the UT,” the LG added.
Shedding light on the life of Mahamana, the LG said the establishment of Banaras Hindu University was the biggest effort of Mahamana in the direction of realizing the dream of an economically strong, culturally and educationally prosperous India.
“Mahamana was a staunch supporter of equality in society. He worked tirelessly to restore human dignity and empower women. His ideologies and life deeds are continuously providing a new path to every generation to work selflessly for the wider interest of the country,” added the LG.
The LG also shared his experience of working with former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
“For Atal-ji, development meant empowerment of the poor, tribals, youth, and women. He firmly believed in socio-economic justice, equality, and transparency in the governance to establish a progressive society. He always believed that fruits of development must reach the poorest of the poor,” the LG observed.
The LG urged the people, especially the youth to work with a sense of collective responsibility for the upliftment of the underprivileged and safeguard the economic, social & educational rights of all sections of society as a befitting tribute to Pt. Madan Mohan Malaviya-ji and Atal Bihari Vajpayee-ji.
