ITANAGAR, Apr 27: State Governor Gen (retd) J J Singh has been honoured with Gandhi Seva Medal for his contributions to the nation as the Chief of Army Staff earlier and Governor of Arunachal Pradesh now with a team of volunteers of the Gandhi Global Family (GGF) led by its vice president S P Varma, a winner of Pamashree Award-2012, presenting him with the medal at Raj Bhawan here today.
The Governor while receiving the medal appreciated the selfless services of the members of GGF for the cause of the community and the country as a whole and urged them to continue in the same vein.
Stating that the whole world knows India as the country of Mahatma Gandhi, Gen Singh said that an Indian is received with respect and honour because he belonged to that great and magnificent nation called India where a man like Gandhiji was born.
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.
Citing that Arunachal Pradesh is familiar with Gandhiji, the Governor told the GGF that people of the remotest place in the State know him and his contributions to the nation. (DIPR)
