New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Monday inaugurated this year's `Sadbhawana Kanwaria Camp' at Jafrabad in East Delhi.

Terming the camp as a unique and excellent example of Hindu-Muslim unity and cultural synthesis, Ms Dikshit stressed that such camps should be organised in other areas of the city as well.

This, the Chief Minister said, would go a long way in establishing amity and social harmony.


Ms Dikshit said the camp at Jafrabad had established an identity of its own owing to the fact that Hindu Kanwarias going to Hardwar were looked after and served by people from the Muslim community.

She termed the camp, which was being organised for the past 13 years, as an example for the people of the rest of the country to emulate.

Local MLA Mateen Ahmed and Councillor Zamir Ahmed Munna were also present on the occasion.
