Nitin Kumbalkar, AICC Member added that Rajivji will be remembered for a long time. Whenever in need, citizens immediately seek help from their corporators or their sarpanchs depending upon the place they live in. This bottom-up approach of governance, known as the Panchayati Raj and conceptualized in 1986, has completely revamped our understanding of democracy.
His vision of women empowerment lead to 33 percent reservation of the seats for women, are all started by Rajivji.
â€œIn addition, the reduction of voting age from 21 to 18 in 1989 has placed our youth behind the steering wheels of our nation,â€ Kumbalkar said.
Citizens coupled with knowledge are the most potent mixture for any country to progress. Indians are laden with knowledge from agriculture to manufacturing and from science to economics. Mobiles, laptops and internet have been the medium of this knowledge transfer. We would have been nowhere close to where we are today, if telecom revolution would not have been unleashed in the 1980s by Rajiv Gandhi.
â€œOn the death anniversary of a man who continues to prosper our lives even today, let us remember himâ€œ said Trisharan Sahare, Congress leader.
