"Homage to Gandhiji on his birth anniversary. To mark his 150th birthday, we are setting up a university, dedicated to Gandhiji, in Purba Medinipur district," Banerjee wrote on her Twitter handle today.
"Today is International Day of Non-Violence, in remembrance of Mahatma Gandhi and his philosophy of non-violence or ahimsa. We must focus on spreading the Gandhian philosophy across the country," she added.
