Speaking on the occasion, Naidu said the thoughts and ideals of Swami Vivekanand are eternal. Considering the way the society is heading these days these thoughts are more applicable today than at any other time, he added.

He said the present Government is fully committed to ‘Antyodaya’ and to carry forward its objectives, several activities like skill up gradation, construction of night shelters, formation of self-help groups and providing financial support for livelihood activities will be taken up in all towns across the country with a population of more than 5,000.
