Rajiv Gandhi’s birth anniversary

Dimapur, Aug. 20 (EMN): Government officials at the Nagaland Civil secretariat observed Sadbhavana Diwas, the birth anniversary of the late prime minister of India Rajiv Gandhi. During the event, the officials took a pledge to foster communal harmony among people of all religions.
The government publicity agency department of Information and Public Information issued updates on Tuesday informing about the programme. The Sadbhavana pledge, according to the IPR, was administered to the officers and staff of the Nagaland Civil Secretariat by Home Commissioner Abhijit Sinha, during the programme. Sinha was the chairman of the programme, updates stated.

Earlier, before administering the pledge to officers, the Home commissioner said that the nation remembers its former prime minister on his birth anniversary. People do have differences but with ‘Sadbhavana’ as ‘communal harmony’ the nation determines to resolve all differences and maintain oneness and harmony among the people regardless of caste, region, religion or language, Sinha said. This can be done through dialogue and constitutional means without resorting to violence, he said.

Sadbhavana Diwas is celebrated on August 20 every year to commemorate the birth anniversary of Rajiv Gandhi. This day is observed to encourage national integration, foster peace and communal harmony among the people of India and people of all religions.
