Martyrs' Day 2019: Governor pays tribute to Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi
TIWN Jan 30, 2019

AGARTALA, Jan 30 (TIWN): Tripura Governor Kaptan Singh Solanki paid tribute to Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi on his death anniversary.

A rich tribute to the Father of the Nation at Gandhighat on the occasion of the death anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

The Governor also paid floral tribute to the statue of Mahatma Gandhi at Circuit house on morning.

Along with the nation the state on Saturday paid tribute Mahatma Gandhi on his death anniversary.

Prominent leaders from various political parties and other dignitaries paid floral tributes to the father of the nation in the state.

The day is also observed as Martyrs` Day. On this day in 1948, Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated at a prayer meeting.

On this day, Mahatma Gandhi, whose life was an inspiration not only to those struggling for India's freedom but continues to inspire all people of conscience the world over that are struggling for freedom, social justice and genuine democracy, was assassinated by Nathuram Godse, on the steps of a building where a prayer meeting was going to take place.

Although India had won its independence from the British on August 15, 1947, Gandhiji continued his struggle for social justice and against sectarian hate that threatened the social fabric of the nation, until the last breath of his life.

It is disheartening to note that while other occasions in India are celebrated with much vigor, Mahatma Gandhi death, which was for the nation and social justice, hardly finds any attention.
