In a solemn tribute to the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, the Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC) observed Gandhi Vardhanti with a heartfelt ceremony. ADCs Sri Y Srinivasa Rao, Sri V. Sanyasi Rao, and Sri SS Varma, along with Heads of Departments (HoDs), came together to garland the statue of Mahatma Gandhi on this significant occasion.
The gesture, carried out on the occasion of Mahatma Gandhi’s Death Anniversary, aimed to honor and remember the profound contributions of the leader who played a pivotal role in India’s independence movement. The presence of ADCs and HoDs signifies the collective respect and admiration for Gandhiji’s ideals and teachings within the administrative leadership of GVMC.
The event was not merely a ceremony; it carried the spirit of #EcoVizag, emphasizing sustainable and environmentally conscious practices. The hashtag #ISupportEcoVizag echoes the commitment of GVMC and its officials towards building a cleaner and greener city, aligning with Mahatma Gandhi’s emphasis on simple living and sustainable practices.
The garlanding of Mahatma Gandhi’s statue serves as a symbolic act of gratitude and remembrance, reinforcing the values of truth, non-violence, and simplicity that Gandhiji championed throughout his life. As the city of Visakhapatnam commemorates this solemn occasion, it also reflects on the enduring legacy of Mahatma Gandhi and the continued relevance of his teachings in today’s world.
GVMC’s observance of Gandhi Vardhanti stands as a testament to the organization’s commitment to promoting values that resonate with Mahatma Gandhi’s vision, fostering a sense of unity, respect, and environmental consciousness within the community.
