Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig (Retd) BD Mishra on Tuesday urged upon the people, particularly the youths to be inspired by freedom fighters Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev, and work for the unity and homogeneity of the society, state and the nation.
Speaking at a programme here which was organised on the occasion of ‘Shaheed Diwas’ to pay homage to Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev for the supreme sacrifice made by them for the freedom of the country, the Governor exhorted the youths to be disciplined, constructive, punctual, value time, patriotic and inculcate the integrity to become an ideal citizen.
He advised them to reinforce the good traditional values and bring about positive and sustainable changes in society for a better and stronger nation.
The Governor also commended the National Blood Transfusion Council, State Blood Transfusion Council, Arunachal Pradesh State AIDS Control Society, Indian Red Cross Society and Arunachal Voluntary Blood Doner’s Organisation for organising a blood donation camp on the occasion and said “such initiatives on important occasions promote nationalism.”
He also appealed to all able-bodied persons to donate blood as it saves lives and also imbibes the spirit of community service.
Among the dignitaries, State Health Minister Alo Libang and Secretary Health P Parthiban were present on the occasion.
A large number of volunteer donors from paramilitary forces, NSS and NCC cadets from various colleges, social organisations and individuals donated blood in the donation camp which was inaugurated by the Governor.
