Hyderabad, July 15 (Hydnow): Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu today cautioned against forces and vested interests that are threatening the nation’s peace and integrity through a divisive agenda. Stressing that it is ‘not Indian culture to denigrate any culture, religion or language’, he called upon every citizen to take responsibility to thwart such attempts to weaken India, unite and guard the nation’s interests.
The Vice President underscored that India’s civilization values teaches respect and tolerance towards all cultures and sporadic incidents cannot undermine India’s secular ethos. Decrying attempts made to diminish India’s image on the international stage, Naidu reiterated that India’s parliamentary democracy and pluralistic values are a model to emulate for the world.
Releasing a book on the life journey of freedom fighter and journalist Damaraju Pundarikakshudu in Vijayawada today, Naidu said ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ gives us an opportunity to recall the sacrifices made by our leaders and freedom fighters during the freedom struggle. Naidu complimented Yallapragada Mallikarjuna Rao, the author, for his efforts in research and compilation of the book.
Noting the great efforts of Damaraju in popularising Gandhiji’s contributions through songs and drama, Naidu called upon media houses to highlight the efforts of Indian freedom fighters through special programs and series of articles to make the younger generations aware of our leaders’ life lessons.
