On this auspicious occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, the President said, let us resolve to rededicate ourselves to the welfare and progress of the nation, to follow the mantra of truth and non-violence, and to build a clean, capable, strong and prosperous India, and to make Gandhiji's dreams come true.
"On the occasion of the 151st anniversary of our Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, I pay homage to him on behalf of our grateful nation," the President said in his message. Gandhiji is remembered on October 2 every year not only in India but all over the world, said the President, adding he remains a source of inspiration for all humanity.
"His lifestory empowers and strengthens the weaker sections of the society.
