Gandhi helped bring out people's inner strength: Modi

New York, Sep 25 (TIWN) Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that Mahatma Gandhi helped bring out the inner strength of people and inspired them with his philosophy, even among those who had never met him.

 World leaders, including Modi, also inaugurated the Gandhi Solar Park at the UN headquarters here and released a commemorative stamp issued by the UN on the occasion of Gandhi's 150th birth anniversary. In a series of tweets in Hindi, the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) said speaking on "Relevance of Mahatma Gandhi in the Contemporary World", Modi said the platform was a living example that Gandhi was from India but did not belong only to India. 

"Even those who had never met Gandhiji were deeply influenced by his life. Whether it was Martin Luthar King Jr or Nelson Mandela, the foundation of their beliefs was Gandhiji, his vision," he said. The prime minister said today the meaning of democracy had come to be confined to it that people would elect a government of their choice and the government would act as per the expectations of the people. "But Gandhiji had stressed on the real strength of democracy. He taught people to be self-sufficient and not to depend on governments," he added.
