Warangal Urban: Mandala Parashuramulu, chairperson, District Child Welfare Committee (CWC) of erstwhile Warangal district, has urged the youth to follow in the footsteps of Swami Vivekananda. A strong nation can be built by the youth who are strong physically as well as mentally, he said.
The 158th birth anniversary celebrations of Swami Vivekananda was organised at the Indoor Stadium in Hanmakonda on Tuesday. While District Youth and Sports Officer Gugulothu Ashok Kumar presided over the programme, CWC chairperson M Parashuramulu attended it as the chief guest.
