The poorest and most vulnerable sections of society should be made capable to live a proper life. Patel said gender equality, respect for women, guarantee of social justice, dignity of labour and sense of community service need to be ensured.
“Cleanliness, to treat nature as a companion to live with, balance between development and ecology should also be ensured. Local cultural heritage should be preserved, mutual cooperation, continuous practice of self-help and self-reliance, peace and harmony in rural communities should be promoted,” Patel added.
