Describing Mahatma Gandhi as a great icon and apostle of peace, the Governor said, we feel proud be a member of that country where he was born and suggested to spread the message of Gandhiji particularly his philosophy of non-violence, peace and patriotism.
Peace and non-violence being prerequisite for prosperity, he opined that various problems could be solved through peace.
