Srinagar 02 Oct (CNS): On the 154th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi aka the Father of the Nation, Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Monday unveiled a statue of Mahatma Gandhi at the Civil Secretariat, here.

As per the news agency CNS, Office of LG J&K in a series of posts on X (formerly Twitter) said, “Unveiled a statue of Pujya Mahatma Gandhi Ji and a Charkha installation at Civil Secretariat, Srinagar. Charkha was used as a significant tool by Bapu in the fight against British Rule. It is a symbol of Swadeshi movement, self-reliance and economic freedom.”

“Bapu’s ideals are for all humanity. I hope our officers, inspired by Bapu’s ideas and ideals, will continue to work dedicatedly for the dignity of every citizen in the society, for equality, social justice, and for a developed and self-reliant Jammu Kashmir,” said Manoj Sinha.

He further said that Pujya Bapu always believed that the message of Charkha’s circumference is much broader than its tangible circumference. The goal of the Charkha is to serve mankind, to live without hurting others, to create an inseparable bond between the rich and the poor, capital and labour, LG added.

Following Bapu’s ideals, J&K in 2021-22 had established 21,640 manufacturing & service units in the villages with the help of KVIC, providing employment to more than 1.73 Lakh. In the last FY, more than 10,628 new units had been installed, Sinha said.

“Today, J&K villages are witnessing unprecedented growth due to the availability of various sources of income. New entrepreneurs are starting their new innings from villages. In terms of basic facilities, the gaps between village and the city are disappearing,” LG concluded the series of posts. (CNS)
