Gujarat shall March ahead..

Gujarat shall March ahead..

Publication: The Economic Times
Date: May 17, 2002

We, the citizens of Gujarat, from different walks of life, are deeply concerned over the unabated violence in the State. This is no less than a great tragedy. It is clear that the vested interests are behind the orgy and the culprits have no community. The forces behind the nefarious game are out to destroy the image of Gujarat as a progressive and forward-looking state.

There is no alternative to communal harmony in any society. All communities will have to learn to live together peacefully. The time has come for all the concerned citizens of Gujarat to stand up in defense of human values, we so clearly cherish. The continuation of the crisis is neither in the interest of Gujarat as a state nor in the interest of the nation as a whole. Only the forces o anarchy would benefit out of it. These forces even do not mind sacrificing human lives for their ulterior motives, holding the peace loving state to ransom.

We appeal to the fellow citizens to exert their moral pressure and to initiate a movement for the return of peace and harmony in Gujarat and help the government to restore Law and Order forthwith. We also urge the print and electronic media, to help winning the public opinion to do everything that would encourage a return to the path of sanity.

It is felt that the ill-fated statements, lacking in understanding and clarity, by the persons from within and outside the state, do no justice to Gujarat. We appeal to them, to refrain from making such statements.

Gujarat is and will continue to remain business friendly. The trade as well as the industry has taken in its stride the current crisis and is looking to the future with confidence. Gujarat's Spirit o Enterprise remains intact as ever. Gujarat shall march ahead.
