I feel happy that this country’s democracy needs the kind of work AGRASRI is undertaking……In many ways, I discover how thorough lectures and seminars you have made Panchayati Raj a truly powerful democratic feature of our public life. Surely, We, the people of India can truly lead the backbone of our democracy only through village regeneration. I deeply appreciate your work in this behalf and I request you to militantly make Panchayati Raj a major mission of your work and tell the people of India to awake, arise and develop through unity and fraternity, Bharat Mahan.
