Achieving the goals of the Swachh Bharat Mission by October 2, 2019, will be an appropriate tribute to the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, on his 150th birth anniversary.

At an event held at the United Nations headquarters in NY to commemorate the International Day of Non-Violence, the top Indian diplomat said the three leaders advocated non-violence to usher social and political changes that were national in nature.

Mahatma,"The man of the peace" gave the nation the sense of Non-violence and Non-cooperation that actually played a crucial part in the nation getting free from the slavery of the "White skin" people.

This will mean stepping up its efforts in conflict prevention, he said. A documentary on the life of Mahatma Gandhi was shown at the occasion too. Uma Jee sang the famous hymn of Gandhiji titled "Baishanab Jan to tene kahiye jo peer parai jane re" on the occasion.

"Gandhiji's teachings on non-violence will always be relevant". I bow to beloved Bapu on #GandhiJayanti.
