Tamil Nadu Governor K Rosaiah and Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Sunday greeted the people on the eve of Independence Day and urged them to work for the growth of the nation.
“Let us pledge to strengthen the foundations of mutual understanding and resolve to work with deep dedication in our mission to make India a great nation,” Rosaiah said.
“On the joyous occasion of our nation’s Independence, I convey my heartiest greetings and best wishes to all the citizens. Our nation is a tripod of secularism. It is a fusion of diverse tradition,” he said.
Jayalalithaa said, “all of us should work untiredly for the growth of our motherland,” adding such initiative should be carried out with a spirit of unity as Indians rooting out differences like caste, creed, religion and language.
“Independence Day is a golden day to reminisce the sacrifices of our freedom fighters,” she said, adding that the independence won by our freedom fighters should be nurtured. Jayalalithaa said her regime is implementing several schemes for the benefit of freedom fighters and their heirs.
