Mumbai, Oct 2 (PTI) Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on Friday called for translating Gandhiji's dream of 'atmanirbhar Bharat' into reality.
He was speaking at the Deepotsav celebrations held by the Mahatma Gandhi International Hindi University, Wardha on completion of 150th anniversary celebrations of the father of the nation.
Koshyari said Gandhiji laid the foundation of atmanirbhar Bharat (self-reliant India) in Sevagram and it was now the duty of every citizen to turn his dream into reality nationwide.
He said Gandhiji, an icon of the world like Mahavir and Buddha, was more relevant than ever today.
He expressed hope that Mahatma Gandhi International Hindi University would become an 'International university' in the true sense of the term.
