BSNLEU pays its respectful homage to Mahatma Gandhi, on the occasion of his 154th birth anniversary. Freedom from British rule and building an independent and secular India, were Mahatma Gandhi’s cherished ambitions. India got independence from the British. But, the Mahatma paid the price for upholding secular ideal. The bullets of a religious fanatic killed the Father of the Nation. On the occasion of this Gandhi Jayanti, we pledge to follow the path shown by Mahatma Gandhi and spread his message of building a secular India.
राष्ट्रपिता महात्मा गांधी को श्रद्धांजलि।
BSNLEU महात्मा गांधी को उनकी 154वीं जयंती के अवसर पर अपनी सम्मानजनक श्रद्धांजलि अर्पित करता है। ब्रिटिश शासन से मुक्ति और एक स्वतंत्र और धर्मनिरपेक्ष भारत का निर्माण, महात्मा गांधी की अग्रिम महत्वाकांक्षाएं थीं। भारत को अंग्रेजों से आजादी मिली। लेकिन, महात्मा ने धर्मनिरपेक्ष आदर्श को कायम रखने की कीमत चुकाई। एक धार्मिक कट्टरपंथी की गोलियों ने राष्ट्रपिता की जान ले ली। इस गांधी जयंती के अवसर पर, हम महात्मा गांधी द्वारा दिखाए गए मार्ग पर चलने और धर्मनिरपेक्ष भारत के निर्माण के उनके संदेश को फैलाने का संकल्प लेते हैं।
