Ahmedabad, Oct 1 (ANI): President Pratibha Patil has said Mahatma Gandhi's idea of all round development was a key to stable and a secure society.
Addressing a gathering here on Wednesday, President Patil said, "Gandhiji gave the message that our task would not be complete unless we wipe the tears of each and every poor in this country so only when each and every section of the society is able to benefit from the country's development only then we would be able to set up a stable and a secure society."
