GUWAHATI, Sept 16 � Governor JB Patnaik today said that only by pursuing the ideals of humanitarianism a new India can be built. The Governor was addressing a function held on the occasion of the 127th birth anniversary of Sri Sri Thakur Anukul Chandra at the Bhangagarh Satsang Vihar here.
Addressing the function, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said that every religion lays stress on engaging in the service of mankind. Every religion is against dividing people on the lines of caste, language and religion. Religions are for extending help to the poor, ill and distressed people.
The ideals preached by Thakur Anukul Chandra are relevant in these contexts, said the Chief Minister. The function was also addressed by Assam Public Service Commission chairman Rakesh Kr Paul, who is also the secretary of the celebration committee, said an official press release.
