Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Monday addressed a gathering at the inauguration ceremony of Former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s birth centenary exhibition. While speaking, an ‘Azaan’ was heard in the background. Sonia, to show respect, paused her speech in middle, and only continued after the ‘Azaan’ ended. In her address, Sonia said that Indira’s biggest concern was to strengthen and develop the nation. “Indira Ji’s biggest concern was to empower and develop the nation,” she said. The ceremony was also attended by Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and her sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. Recently passed November 19th marked 99th birth anniversary of India’s former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. With that, 2016-17 also marks centenary year for Indira.

Earlier, on her birth anniversary, Sonia had shared heartwarming details of her relationship with Indira. “Indira Gandhi was not a figure of history for me, she was my mother in law, lived under the same roof, shared joys and sorrows,” Sonia had said in New Delhi on Saturday. “It is from her that I learnt about India, its culture, values. It is from her from where I imbibed my earliest political lessons,” added Gandhi.  Delivering an emotional speech, the Congress president recalled Indira Gandhi’s contribution to the country. ‘She was a remarkable woman, the like of whom the country has never seen since. But she was much more than that,” she said.

      19-11-2016. Caste and religion are mainly personal and is used for praying God, marriage and domestic functions and should not be used for governance. So far as governance and administration is concerned honesty and dedication for work should be the criterion. Citizens must be treated as citizens based on their education ability to do honest work for the country free from corruption. Unfortunately our politicians in their greed for getting elected rule the country and am wealth and properties divide the citizens based on the religion. It is high time a test or examination is conducted for politicians and their members regarding character essment, ability for honest work etc like employees. Their character and antecedents must be verified by a neutral body like judiciary. This is my views for getting honest politicians to rule and this method reduces growth of too many political parties, and politicians who are dishonest. B S GANESH BANGALORE
