Shastriji forgotten

October 9, 2020


Apropos “City remembers Mahatma” (SOM dated Oct. 2), it is really sad to note that the city has completely forgotten late Lal Bahadur Shastri, the finest Prime Minister India has ever had, whose birth anniversary also falls on 2nd October ! 

While extensive news coverage is given to various events to mark Gandhiji’s birth anniversary, there is no mention at all about any event held to mark Shastriji’s birth anniversary ! Why this step-motherly treatment? 

Shastriji also deserves to be remembered and treated in the same manner as Gandhiji, for his selfless and dedicated service to our nation.

– Ashok Bhushan, Vishveshwaranagar, 3.10. 2020
