Gujarat's Chief Minister Shri Narendrabhai Modi will perform the ground-breaking ceremony of the Mahatma Mandir here on Monday, June 7, 2010 at 10.30 a.m.

The majestic memorial to Mahatma Gandhi is being built by 'kar sevaks' with symbolic samples of soil and water brought in 50,000 pitchers from 26 nations, all the states in India, from all the 159 towns and 18,000 villages in Gujarat. The project has been undertaken as part of the state's golden jubilee celebration.

A 'time capsule' chronicling the march of the state since its foundation on May 1, 1960 will be lowered into the ground under the site of the Mahatma Mandir. The box, christened 'Kaal Sanduk' of 'Smriti Manjusha' is made of special gauge stainless steel after given proper treatment. The scripts too are written on a special paper mixed with plastic to last a long time.

It will contain audio-visual compact discs prepared by the Government of Gujarat, besides Ravishankar Maharaj's word-by-word speech delivered at the time of Gujarat's Foundation Day on May 1, 1960, the concept of the Mahatma Mandir and the opinion of 'kar sevaks' participating in the construction of Mahatma Mandir.

The time capsule will also carry the resolution passed by Gujarat's present and past Chief Ministers, MPs and MLAs at the unique parliamentary conclave, named 'Swarnim Gujarat Sanasadiya Parishad' held at the State Assembly on January 1, 2010.

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi held an interaction with representatives of religious and social organizations to discuss the Covid-19 situation earlier today via video conferencing.

Prime Minister said that the interaction is yet another example of society and government working together for the benefit of the country. He appreciated the work done by these organizations towards meeting the challenges posed by Covid-19. He said that the help provided to people was beyond caste or religious considerations and was a shining example of ‘Ek Bharat-Eknishtha Prayas’. Across the country, Temples, Mosques, Churches and Gurudwaras doubled up as hospitals and isolation centres, while also helping the needy get food and medicines, he said.

Prime Minister discussed the rapid rollout of the vaccination drive in the country, adding that the ‘Sabko Vaccine Muft Vaccine’ campaign is like a shield in the fight against Corona. He exhorted the religious and community leaders to join the efforts of the government by helping spread awareness about vaccination and help combat rumours and confusions about the vaccines. He asked them to work in collaboration with the government, especially in areas where there is high vaccine hesitancy. This will go a long way in helping our health workers reach out to each and every citizen.

Prime Minister also asked the leaders to be a part of the celebration of 75 years of independence. He asked them to ensure that everyone becomes a part of ‘Azaadi ka Amrut Mahotsav’. He said that on this occasion, we should work toward uniting the entire length and breadth of the nation through a ‘Bharat Jodo Aandolan’, and showcase the true spirit of ‘Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat’.  

The interaction was attended by Prof. Salim Engineer, Convenor, Kendriya Dharmik Jan Morcha and Vice President, Jamaat-e-Islami Hind; Maha Rishi Peethadheeshwar Goswami Sushil Maharaj, National Convenor, Bharatiya Sarv Dharam Sansad, Uttar Pradesh; Swami Omkaranand Saraswati, Peethadheeshwar, Omkar Dhaam, New Delhi; Singh Sahib Giani Ranjit Singh, Chief Granthi, Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, New Delhi; Dr. M.

K. Merchant, National Trustee & Secretary, Lotus Temple and Indian Baha'i Community, New Delhi; Swami Shantatmanand, President, Ramakrishna Mission, New Delhi; and Sister B. K.
