CM Himanta Biswa Pays Tribute to Gopal Krishna Gokhale on His Punyatithi

Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma paid homage to the memory of Gopal Krishna Gokhale on his punyatithi, recognizing him as a luminary of India’s freedom struggle and a champion of education and social reform.

“A stalwart of Bharat’s freedom movement,” stated CM Sarma, “Gokhale tirelessly worked to advance the cause of education and foster social empowerment.”

He emphasized how Gokhale’s principles served as a beacon of inspiration for countless individuals, including the revered Mahatma Gandhi, urging them towards altruistic service to the nation.

Gopal Krishna Gokhale, born on May 9, 1866, and departing on February 19, 1915, was not only a prominent political leader but also a dedicated social reformer during India’s quest for independence. As a key figure in the Indian National Congress, he advocated for self-rule and championed social reforms through the Servants of India Society, which he founded.

Gokhale’s moderate approach within the Congress, advocating for reforms through collaboration with existing governmental structures, made him a significant figure in the Poona Association. His leadership and advocacy for social change left an indelible mark on India’s political landscape, guiding the nation towards a brighter future.

As CM Himanta Biswa Sarma commemorates the punyatithi of Gopal Krishna Gokhale, his words serve as a reminder of the enduring legacy of this visionary leader, whose contributions continue to inspire generations of Indians in their pursuit of nation-building and social progress.
