Change should be constructive, not destructive-Murli Manohar Joshi
Veteran Bharatiya Janata Party leader Murli Manohar Joshi said that change in society should be constructive, not destructive. He was speaking at the inauguration of a two-day regional conference on ‘Towards Peace, Harmony and Happiness: Transition to Transformation’ here on Friday.
Joshi said that for constructive transformation in society, focus should be on improving social and ethical values, human welfare, environmental protection and correcting the shortcomings. “Today, scientific and technological change has had a profound effect on the social relations and emotional status of the youth. We are living more in the virtual world. There is loss of human sensibilities in communication in today’s generation and it has become more dependent on the digital and virtual. We also need to understand the mutual dependence of humans and the environment and take environmental protection seriously. Focus has to be not only GDP increase but should also be on overall human development.”
Chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat said that the dream of a new India and world peace can be fulfilled only by moving forward in unison with ancient and modern values. “It is a matter of concern that though our GDP is growing rapidly and we are the fourth largest economy of the world, we are lagging behind in happiness index. There is need to look back into our past,” he said. READ MORE POSTS…
