We will follow ideology & principles of Mahatma, Shastri: Amit Patkar

Panaji, Oct 2 (UNI) Goa Congress President Amit Patkar on Sunday said the party will follow the ideology and principles of Mahatma Gandhi and Lal Bahadur Shastri in its roadmap ahead.

"Mahatma Gandhi and former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri always adopted the path of truth, non-violence and simplicity. Both the great leaders gave their contribution in making of India. We will follow their ideology in our roadmap ahead," he said while speaking at the Gandhi Jayanti and Shastri Jayanti celebrations at Congress House.

"Our leader Rahul Gandhi is walking from Kanyakumari to Kashmir with his "Bharat Jodo Yatra. This yatra is to unite India as per the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. We should support the Yatra to ensure India remains one," Patkar said.

Attacking the government, the Congress leader said it is most unfortunate that the insensitive Government of Goa announced 5 per cent hike in Water Tariff on the eve of Gandhi Jayanti.

"Mahatma Gandhi and Bahadur Shastri dedicated their life to help and uplift the downtrodden. We must come together and fight for the rights of poor. This will be the real tribute to the great leaders," Leader of Opposition Yuri Alemao said.

Former Deputy Speaker Shambhu Bhau Bandekar, Senior Vice President M K Shaikh, Media Cell Chairman Amarnath Panjikar also spoke on the occasion and paid their tributes to Mahatma Gandhi.

Earlier, floral tributes were paid to Father of Nation Mahatma Gandhi and former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri.
