New Delhi, Jan. 11: President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam chose the first Governors’ Conference today to tell politicians that the vision of a “developed India” will remain just that if they fail to collectively combat communalism and insurgency, reports our special correspondent.
“We have to collectively fight and eliminate communal differences and insurgency from our country. It was visible everywhere (I visited over the last five months) that people were against violence,” Kalam said, addressing for the first time a conference of governors in Delhi.
Kalam underlined the need for communal harmony to push forward the development agenda and spoke of the “positive role” governors could play.
