Congratulating the organizers of the seminar, Shri Modi affirmed that the event became stronger with the participation of respected judges of the Gujarat High Court. “A sanctity was created with their presence. This is a very big thing,” he stated. He also expressed hope that with experts talking, this seminar will throw further light on the various aspects of the field that will make those associated with it more aware of their responsibilities. “Lots will come out of this discussion,” he avowed.
The Chief Minister spoke about the need of instilling a trust in the Government framework. He said, “We have not been able to instill a sense of ownership. People mistrust the institutions they themselves made. No one feels the Government is ours. When we sit in the bus we say this is a Government’s bus but it is our bus as well!” Shri Modi added, “In every activity a new atmosphere of trust must be created. We should create a trust that this is the framework and the result will come out in this framework itself.”
Shri Modi expressed joy that many of the attendees on the seminar are visiting Mahatma Mandir for the first time. He shared that the uniqueness of the Mahatma Mandir is that soil from every village, state and part of the world where Indians live has contributed in its creation. He also invited those present to visit the exhibit on Mahatma Gandhi’s life.
Earlier, Justice Ravi Tripathi and Justice Jayant Patel spoke on the occasion. Minister Shri Pradeepsinh Jadeja also addressed the session. Speeches were made by Advocate General, High Court of Gujarat Shri Kamal Trivedi and Shri Prakashbhai Jani. Delegates from all over Gujarat are attending the seminar.
