The Vice President, Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu today called upon the youth to regularly devote some time to helping the needy and underprivileged sections in society. He said that ‘nothing gives greater satisfaction and joy than extending a helping hand to those in distress. ‘Share and care’ is the core value of our civilization.

Shri Naidu inaugurated the ‘Seva Samstha’ building for Rashtriya Seva Samithi (RASS), a non-profit social service organisation’s regional centre in New Delhi. Addressing the gathering, the Vice President said that everyone must be alive to the needs of the community he is living in and try to extend a helping hand.

Vice President urged for eradication of illiteracy

The Vice President further stressed that it is the responsibility of large institutions and particularly those from the affluent sections to use resources at their disposal and to take up service-oriented programs in rural India. In their service activities, Shri Naidu wanted a particular focus on the health of women and children, skill development of youth and welfare of farmers.

The Vice President appreciated the efforts of RASS among the underprivileged communities in backward regions and noted their contribution during the peak of the pandemic. Shri Naidu recalled the efforts of Padma awardee, late Shri Muniratnam Nayudu, the founder of RASS, and called him “a true Gandhian, in letter and spirit”. He said other organisations too must supplement the efforts of the governments in eliminating poverty, and illiteracy and fighting various social evils like atrocities against women and weaker sections.
