Our Prime Minister has rooted out the cause of inequality and has given the nation equal citizenry, a common name and freedom of religious expression.

This was the statement made by the Minister for Agriculture, Rural and Maritime Development and Waterways and Environment Mahendra Reddy when giving his keynote address at the 60th Shree Sanatan Dharm Pratinidhi Sabha Fiji annual convention at Tuva Primary School in Sigatoka yesterday.

Mr Reddy said Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama stood up to bring in the change.

“He is a visionary leader of this country as well as a servant of every Fijian,” Mr Reddy said.

“In lord Hanuman’s classification of the three types of servant, he is the first type one who accomplishes the task more than what has been entrusted to him by his people.”

Mr Reddy encouraged the hundreds that gathered at the Convention, to follow in the footsteps of our Prime Minister.

“I strongly urge all Sanatanis to rally behind our leader adopt the identity of oneness and move forward contributing to the growth and development of one and all as well as for our beloved country,” he said.

He told the Sanatanis that it was crucial to protect the values of the Sanatan organisation.

“We as Sanatanis we have to undertake to protect the ethos and founding values of the Sanatan organisation and how we can map out a brighter future for our children going forward,” he added.

“Our success today, in all spheres of life, can be attributed to the sacrifices our forefathers made to establish these institutions when the legal framework for such an establishment was not clearly articulated.”

Mr Reddy also encouraged the Sanatanis to take into consideration the sacrifices that were made by their forefathers who established the organisation.

“I sincerely hope that the organisation will develop a separate advisory body of intellectuals to help steer the organisation in the right direction,” he said.

The Convention will conclude on Monday.
