Prime News, National, New Delhi, April 7:- It is the responsibility of all Indians to fight forces that are stopping the country from going forward, former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh has said.
The former prime minister, who was addressing an event to commemorate the 111th birth anniversary of freedom fighter Jagjivan Ram on Friday evening, said striving for equality in the country would be the best homage to the social reformer.
“Today, there are many forces in the country which want to push the country backwards instead of moving it forward. It is our responsibility to fight these forces and stop them from going forward,” Dr Singh said.
Referring to ‘Babuji,’ as Ram was fondly known, Singh said everyone should vow to walk on the path laid down by him “and make the country progress in social justice and equality in every possible way.”-(NGB, Inputs: Agencies)
