JPCC celebrates 26th death anniversary of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi

Ranchi, May 21 (UNI) The Jharkhand Pradesh Congress Committee today paid floral
tributes to former Prime Minister Bharat Ratna late Rajiv Gandhi on his 26th death
anniversary which was celebrated by the party as ‘Shahdat Diwas’.
In a function organised at the JPCC headquarters here the party leaders garlanded
his portrait and paid their tributes to the departed leader.

remember Rajiv Gandhi as he was the one who in his public meetings in Gumla,
Simdega and Khunti had said that without creation of a separate state of Jharkhand
the development of the tribals and other members of the community was not possible.
The party leaders said the state was given priority during sanctioning of major
schemes, however the dream of establishing the panchayati raj administration in the
state is still unfulfilled.
The leaders said the panchayati raj system would not only ensure development but
would also help to curb corruption.
The leaders described him a visionary and said his dreams for India of 21st century
were carried forward by former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, AICC president Sonia
Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi.
They said that he believed that a turn around in the fortunes of the country can only
be made when the power is designated in the hands of elected panchayat representatives.
Those present on the occasion also included leader of the legislature wing of the
Congress party Aalamgir Aalam, Anandi Brahma, former minister Geetashri Oraon, Alok
Kumar Dubey, Lal Kishore Nath Shahdeo and many more.
