The CEM urged his colleague members to dedicate their service to the welfare of the people.

He recalled Gandhi’s thought – “Whenever you are in doubt, or when the self becomes too much, recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man/woman whom you may have seen, and ask yourself, if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him/her.”

“Will it lead to Swaraj for the hungry and spiritually starving millions?”
