The governor said that no society can progress unless social harmony is strengthened and discrimination ends.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has echoed the same views on Friday as he paid tributes to the chief architect of Indian Constitution at a function in Lucknow. “There should be no holidays in schools on birth anniversaries of great personalities. Instead special two hour programme should be held to teach students about them,” Adityanath said.
