Venkatesh, deputy commissioner Udupi district garlanded the statue of Mahatma Gandhi and paid floral tributes to the father of the nation.

Speaking on the occasion DC Venkatesh said that Gandhiji had a lot of concern for the society, and came up with solutions for the problems. His ideals such as truth, non-violence, peace and simplicity are relevant at all times. Gandhiji’s birthday is most appropriate as he had always emphasized on the adoption of cleanliness in our daily lives. Gandhiji said that ‘Cleanliness is next to Godliness’. He had stressed the importance of a disease free and clean body.
