I extend my heartiest greetings to the peace loving people of Andaman & Nicobar Islands on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, birthday of the Father of the Nation.

Gandhiji was an apostle of peace and a practitioner of non-violence. His teachings have great relevance in today’s materialistic world. Apart from being a preacher of non-violence, he was also a staunch devotee of truth and communal harmony. Let all of us vow to devote ourselves to follow the path shown by Mahatma Gandhi to usher in an era of peace and prosperity and also to foster the spirit of unity among our countrymen.

Lt Gen (Retd) Bhopinder Singh

Lieutenant Governor

Andaman & Nicobar Islands
