Union Home Minister Amit Shah also remembered Bapu. He tweeted and wrote that he wrote on the death anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, who inspired the country to become self-reliant by following the path of indigenous and self-reliance. Adopting the ideas of Swachhata, Swadeshi and Swadeshi adopted by Pujya Bapu in the golden age of independence would be a true tribute to Gandhiji. Mahatma Gandhi was born in Porbandar, Gujarat.
स्वदेशी और स्वावलंबन के मार्ग पर चलकर देश को आत्मनिर्भर बनाने की प्रेरणा देने वाले महात्मा गांधी जी की पुण्यतिथि पर उन्हें कोटि-कोटि नमन।
आजादी के अमृतकाल में पूज्य बापू के स्वच्छता, स्वदेशी और स्वभाषा के विचारों को अपनाकर उन पर चलाना ही गाँधी जी को सच्ची श्रद्धांजलि होगी। pic.twitter.com/ZBYH3cUg0S
