Mamata pays tribute to Swamiji

11 Sep 2017

Chief minister Mamata Banerjee today paid homage to Swami Vivekananda on the occasion of the 125th year of his historic address at the World Parliament of Religions in Chicago. "Our heartfelt homage to Swami Vivekananda on the anniversary of his historic address to the Parliament of Religions in Chicago in 1893," Mamata wrote on her Twitter handle. The University Grants Commission (UGC) had sent letters to universities and other institutes of higher education to facilitate arrangements for viewing Modi's speech, which the Mamata Banerjee-government had described as a "Tughlaqi' decision", and accused the Centre of "forcibly" trying to impose such orders.
