Vijayawada, Jan.30 (Hydnow): Governor of Andhra Pradesh Biswabhushan Harichandan has paid rich tributes to Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi, on Martyrs’ Day, also observed as Shaheed Diwas, by people all over the country.
Harichandan in a message said that “the day marks the death anniversary of Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi, who was assassinated on January 30, 1948 at a prayer meet at Birla House. On this day, the country remembers and pays homage to Mahatma Gandhi and other freedom fighters who sacrificed their lives during the freedom struggle to free the Motherland.”
“Gandhiji’s contribution to India’s freedom movement cannot be measured in words as he, along with other freedom fighters, compelled the British to leave India by following the agenda of non-violence,” said the Governor.
Governor further said “I once again appeal to the people of Andhra Pradesh to be more vigilant over the prevailing Omicron variant of COVID-19 which is spreading faster. It is not the time to be complacent and everyone should remain guarded and take all precautions by adhering to COVID-appropriate behaviour and prevent spread of the virus, in the interest of yourself and your family members.” (Hydnow)
