Tamil Nadu Governor CH Vidyasagar Rao has issued a message on International Human Rights Day.
He said in a Raj Bhavan statement, “India is one of the largest democracies in the world. We are all blessed to have born in this great democratic country.”
He further said that the Constitution of India promises to secure all its citizens Justice, Liberty, Equality and Dignity.
“United Nations has called to “Stand up for someone’s rights” on the ‘Human Rights Day’ this year. On the occasion of International Human Rights Day, let us resolve to uphold basic human rights, promote human values, peace, harmony and strengthen the bondage of brotherhood to embark on to a prosperous future,” he added.
Recently, the Governor appreciated the people of Tamil Nadu for maintaining peace and calm during this trying time and displaying to the entire nation their law abiding culture and disciplined attitude, a Raj Bhavan statement said.
No major untoward incident or law order issue arose since December 5, when Jayalalithaa died following a cardiac arrest, and the next day when her mortal remains were kept in the state before she was laid to rest.
In his letter to Chief Secretary P Ramamohana Rao, the Governor said he was proud that the government machinery “had taken incredible and timely efforts in facilitating required arrangements at Rajaji hall, where the mortal remains of Hon’ble Madam (Jayalalithaa)” were kept for the people to pay respects.
