Kickstarting the 150th birth anniversary celebration of Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad of Vadodara Chief Minister Narendra Modi said the administration during Gaekwad regime was unparalleled and was a benchmark of pro-people welfare activities.
 

Amid a great zeal of citizens the Chief Minister flagged off ‘Sayaji Sawari' which will showcase the initiatives and customs of Sayajirao regime through 110 tableaux-floats. The Gaekwad royal family also graced the occasion.

Chief Minister said the foreign rulers feared that Indian dynasties would prove challenge for them in getting hold of India. And so they planned to write perverted history of Indian kings as if they were all indulged in passions only. In fact, the pro-people initiatives taken by Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad such as education, fitness, water, roads, industrial and agricultural development, nurturing the culture of art and literature, among others, were commendable and inspirational. The time has come to acquaint people about the true history of monarchical time, he said.

Maharaja Gaekwad's book ‘Minor Hints' is still relevant for the modern-day administrators. Gaekwad regime is the best example of good governance, Mr. Modi said. Chief Minister also called upon people to take 150th birth anniversary as an opportunity for infusing fresh vigor.

On the occasion, the Chief Minister released the book ‘Sayajirao Jivan Darshan', penned by Dr. Bansidhar Sharma and a coffee table book complied by Mr. C.B.Patel, publisher of Gujarat Samachar, London.

Members of Gaekwad royal family, In-charge minister Nitin Patel, Minister of State for Tourism Jitubhai Sukhadiya, Parliamentary Secretary Yogesh Patel, LP Balkrishna Shukla, MLAs, invitees and citizens of Vadodara in large number were present on the occasion.
