MELBOURNE, 29 April: Mahatma Gandhi’s granddaughter and African National Congress (ANC) leader Ela Gandhi today expressed concern over intolerance and deprivation in the world. She was interacting with the media at the Gandhi- The Immigrant Exhibition on at the Immigration Museum, city today.
Ela Gandhi answering to a question from SAT said, “The exhibition is excellent and gives Gandhi’s universal message of diversity. We are all equals. People are people and don’t look at them as specifics.”
In an obvious reference to the removal of South African President Zuma on corruption charges, Ela Gandhi said, “We are happy at this development and were ourselves instrumental in getting that done.”
“The spirit and value of Gandhi’s teachings are more important in today’s globalized world where problems are common,” she said.
