He was speaking after receiving the felicitation at the Kannada Rajyotsava function organised by Jaimaruti Kannada Lorry Drivers’ Association near BPCL Gas Plant in Soluru in the Taluk. “Achievement can be made through organisation. Organised Rajyotsava celebrations are meaningful. Labourers should shape the future of their children with sweat and hard earned money. Let there be self-respecting work. Don’t be inferior when it comes to work. Education has to be valued. The labourers should educate their children,” he said.
