Press Trust of India Bhopal
Madhya Chief Minister Kamal Nath will kick off Gandhi Jayanti celebrations here on October 2 by leading a procession with participants singing 'Vaishnava Jana', a 15th century bhajan long held as the Father of the Nation's favourite.
The march will begin at 8:25 am from Roshanpur Chowk and proceed to Minto Hall where Nath will garland a statue of Gandhiji, said Congress' Bhopal unit president Kailash Mishra.
"He will then proceed to garland the statue of Lal Bahadur Shastri's statue near Vidhan Bhavan as October 2 is the former prime minister's birthday as well," he added.
MP Congress spokesperson Bhupendra Gupta said several such bhajan-singing processions will be held across the state.
A state government official said collectors have been instructed to organise programmes throughout the year to propagate Gandhiji's principles.
October 2 is the 150th birth anniversary of Gandhiji.
