Also, it is improper to indulge in gambling after worshipping Goddess Lakshmi on Diwali," he said. The chief minister, who was on a visit to the city, located near the Indo-Nepal border, said India and Nepal are "two bodies and one soul" and there is a need to impart skill development training to people residing on both the sides of the frontier.

At a skill development training programme organised by the Sashastra Seema Bal, Adityanath said, "We have to give a befitting reply to those who are trying to target India by making Nepal their centre. From this point of view, it becomes extremely important to give training to Nepalese people."
