Mysuru, October 2:- “Mahatma Gandhi showed the world what all can be achieved by walking on the path of non-violence,” said district in-charge minister V Somanna.
He was speaking after garlanding the Gandhi statue at Gandhi circle in the city to mark 150th Gandhi Jayanti on Wednesday.
“150th Gandhi Jayanti is being observed everywhere. Gandhi has given his contributions and message to the nation. He is one among the greatest leaders of the world. Prime Minister Narendra Modi started an initiative against plastic to mark the birth anniversary of the Mahatma. We should extend our support to the Prime Minister to make the dreams of Gandhi come true,” he said.
MP Pratap Simha, MLA L Nagendra, mayor Pushpalatha Jagannath, and others were present.
While returning from the event, a cut-out welcoming Gandhi Jayanti fell on the car of the mayor and the car got damaged. The minister expressed his anguish over the shabby job done while erecting the cut-out. (MR/KS)
