REMEMBRANCE: Haryana Governor A.R. Kidwai paying tributes to former Prime Minister Gulzarilal Nanda on his birth anniversary in Kurukshetra on Tuesday.

CHANDIGARH: The Haryana Governor, A.R. Kidwai, said on Tuesday that talks are going on with the Union Tourism and Cultural Ministry for development of the holy city of Kurukshetra as a tourist centre at a cost of Rs. 200 crores.
Speaking in Kurukshetra where he inaugurated the Gulzarilal Nanda Institute of National Integration and Peace on his birth anniversary, Dr. Kidwai called upon the people to propagate the message of national integration and peace as given by the late leader so that the youth could take inspiration from it.
He said that the late leader would be remembered in history for his simplicity and honesty. "He is one of those extraordinary leaders of our country who had devoted all his lifetime in the service of the people especially in fighting corruption and social evils prevailing in society," he added.
He recalled that it was the late Gulzarilal Nanda who had constituted the Kurukshetra Development Board which set up Panorama and Museum and Light programme depicting the history of Mahabharta.

Dr. Kidwai said that by setting up a library and a museum, the people visiting this holy pilgrimage would get a glimpse of the life of the great leader who besides holding many important portfolios in the Union Ministry had also remained Prime Minister twice after the death of Jawaharlal Nehru and Lal Bahadur Shastri.
