“NANAJI Deshmukh worked in the remote areas where nobody wanted to go. He went there and created a wonderful work. We should learn from his deeds how to do work perfectly,” said Akhil Bharatiya Pracharak Pramukh of RSS Shri Madan Das. He was speaking at a function organised in New Delhi on ninth monthly shradh of Nanaji on November 27. Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Smt Sushma Swaraj, noted saint from Chitrakoot Swami Sankarshan Prapannacharya Maharaj, Education Minister of Madhya Pradesh Smt Archana Chitnis and leading industrialist Dr Rajaram Jaipuriya were also present on the occasion. A painting made by leading painter Shri Suhas Bahulkar was also inaugurated on the occasion.
Shri Madan Das further said he himself drew inspiration and guidance from Nanaji. Quoting Nanaji he said India cannot be developed without the development of villages. The experiments conducted by Nanaji in the field of rural development need to be emulated on larger scale.
Smt Sushma Swaraj said the Chitrakoot project is an ideal with respect of sewa (service), samarpan (dedication), and soch (thinking). She said Nanaji has practically materialised the Gram Swaraj dream of Gandhiji. Swami Sankarshan Prapannacharya Maharaj and Dr Rajaram Jaipuriya also spoke on the occasion. (FOC)
