Earlier, he garlanded Gandhiji’s statue installed at the same place (at Ajjarkad) visited by the Mahatma on February 25, 1934. Minister Madhwaraj also remembered the former Prime Minister Late Lal Bahadur Shastri, whose birth anniversary too falls on October 2. He inaugurated the Swatchchata Sapthaha programme and distributed badges to pourakarmikas. The release of a special edition on Gandhiji brought out by the Information and Public Relations Department was observed at both places.
