“My respectful tributes to the father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi ji on his birth anniversary today. Universally revered as an apostle of peace and non-violence Gandhiji was an embodiment of selfless service, kindness and compassion,” the Vice President Secretariat tweeted quoting Naidu.

Mahatma Gandhi led the struggle to liberate India from colonial rule based on the values of truth and non-violence. His principle of ”ahimsa” (non-violence) will continue to guide us and the rest of the world in our shared quest for peace, harmony and universal brotherhood, he said.

“The nation also celebrates Swachh Bharat Diwas as a tribute to Mahatma Gandhi, who had famously said ”sanitation is more important than independence”. I urge everyone to participate in Swachh Bharat campaign and make it a part of their lives,” the vice president said.

Violence can never solve any problem and dialogue is the only way forward to resolve even the most intractable issue, he observed.
