“It is never possible to move society forward on any principle other than non-violence. The mantra of non-violence preached by Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi is still relevant to us today. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is also engaged in service to the country following Gandhi’s ideals of non-violence.”
Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha said this while unveiling the memorial statue of Mahatma Gandhi at the Renters Society of Jogendra Nagar on Friday.
The statue of Mahatma Gandhi was erected under the initiative of the Mahatma Research Foundation.
At the beginning of the program, a minute’s silence was observed at Kumarghat for the tragic accident occurred during the reverse chariot procession on June 28.
Speaking on the occasion, the Chief Minister said that recently Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled the statue of Mahatma Gandhi in Hiroshima, Japan.
In that sequence, the statue of Mahatma Gandhi was unveiled at Renters Society.
The Chief Minister thanked all the members of the Mahatma Gandhi Research Foundation for this initiative.
CM Saha further said, “Mahatma Gandhi was the leading figure of India’s freedom movement. He emphasized the three principles of non-violence, satyagraha and swaraj in the movement. Mahatma Gandhiji’s dream was that every village in India would be self-reliant and self-sufficient.”
CM Saha said that the present government of the state is also working for public welfare following the ideals of Gandhiji.
