Congress celebrated birth anniversaries of Mahatma Gandhi and former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri at Pradesh Congress Committee office on Monday. Congressmen offered flower petals on the photos of both great leaders. Earlier, Congressmen reached old Vidhan Sabha to garland the statues of Mahatma Gandhi and Lal Bahadur Shastri. A unique situation got created at Old Vidhan Sabha when leaders of both Congress and BJP reached simultaneously to garland Mahatma Gandhi’s portrait.

Later, leaders garlanded portrait of Mahatma Gandhi and raised slogans. The newly-appointed APROs for Congress organisation election process, Pradeep Tamta, Jitendra Kansana, Rajkumar Kataria, Ahmed Kesar remembered the contribution of Mahatma Gandhi and Lal Bahadur Shastri in nation building and shed light on their personalities. They urged the Congress workers to follow the path shown by both great leaders of country. The speakers of the programme, however, underlined that the present circumstances are bent on to suppress the Gandhi ideology.

They added that even in adverse conditions, Mahatma Gandhi had never compromised with his values and ethics. Rather, he forced the opponents to bow through the medium of truth. State Congress President Arun Yadav also remembered Mahatma Gandhi by saying that Gandhi is a philosophy and it is the duty to inspire next generation to follow the path shown by father of nation.

Congress General Secretary P C Sharma, senior leader Ashok Jain Bhaba, MLA Hemant Katare, Dhanopia, Ravi Saxena, Durgesh Sharma, corporator Guddu Chouhan etc were also present.
