Hyderabad, August 14 (INN): Governor ESL Narasimhan on Wednesday conveyed heartfelt greetings to the people of Andhra Pradesh on the occasion of Independence Day.
“Independence Day is a day of remembrance as well as dedication. Our freedom struggle is the culmination of the sacrifice of generations of selfless patriots; young and old, men and women cutting across the barriers of caste, religion and region from all over the country,” he said.
“Today is a time to bow in remembrance of all those, whose vision made it possible for us to enjoy the fruits of freedom.”
The Governor said that our constitution ensures every citizen equal opportunity to fulfill their destiny without discrimination. “It enjoins upon us the obligations of citizenship to be fulfilled as well as to defend the unity and integrity of the country and to find accord on all issues through tolerance and mutual respect within our democratic framework which has stood the test of time,” he said.
Narasimhan said that Andhra Pradesh has been at the forefront of nation building and particularly our farmers have been the backbone of the nation. “We have a legacy of a great tradition as well as culture. The benefits of development should reach every village, habitat and every citizen to fill his heart with hope as well as joy, should be our endeavour,” he said.
“May all your endeavours bear fruit and I pray for the well-being of the State and its people,” the Governor said.
