As the Gujarat government looks forward to the celebration of Mahatma Gandhi's 150th birth anniversary on October 2, Rupani said the state government will be planning a series of programmes throughout the year. "Programmes with people's participation to inspire them with Gandhian philosophy are being also being planned."

"Although, the 150th anniversary celebrations will be a nationwide event, but being a birth state of the Mahatma Gandhi, Gujarat's share will have to be a significant one," Rupani is said to have told the reporters.
