Goa Governor Satyapal Malik has recalled how Dr Ram Manohar Lohia had described Mahtma Gandhi. The Mahtma was killed by Nathuram Godse, but his soul was killed by his successors in the Congress and converted him into Charkha.

The Governor spoke passionately about Mahatma Gandhi at a function of 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi organized by Art and Culture department in collaboration with Raj Bhavan.

Also present at the function were deputy CM Babu Kavalekar and Goa University Vice Chancellor Varun Sahani.

Stories of Gandhi were read out by CEO of Gandhian Forum for Ethical Corporate Governance Dr Shobhana Radhakrishna and Dr Ravi Chopra. Favourite Bhajans of Gandhi were also recited in different languages.

Governor Malik also narrated a story of how Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi became the Mahatma.

Governor also said that Mahatma Gandhi was the first man to practice value-based politics.

Such a towering personality never had any ego. But today’s leaders start acting mad after becoming the MLA.
