National Integration Week Celebrations inaugurated at NLC

NEYVELI: If employees of an organisation strive for the growth of the firm, it will automatically foster national integration, P. Babu Rao, Director (Personnel), Neyveli Lignite Corporation, has said.

He was speaking at the inauguration of National Integration Week Celebrations—2008 organised at Lignite Hall on the NLC premises on Wednesday. He also flagged off campaign vehicles to spread the message of national integration.

The rise of parochialism that prevented persons belonging to one State from working in another and religious fanaticism that caused desecration or damage to places of worship had endangered national integration, Mr. Rao said.

Home was the place where the seeds of national integration should be sown in young minds. Parents should teach their children not to discriminate anybody on the basis of caste, community and religion, he said.

The employees in any organisation should realise their responsibility and put in their best for the development of the firm.

Mr. Rao said that the NLC was facing several challenges, including acquisition of land for expanding mining activity and hence, this was the crucial time for the employees to act with perspicacity.

Chief General Manager (Commercial) K. Sekar said that national integration was not a weekly affair but a life-long commitment. Chief General Manager (Power Station Engineering) J. Mahil Selvan said that resolving differences through talks would foster unity.

Chief General Manager (Personnel and Administration) A. Lourdes said that the NLC was an example for national integration because people from various parts of the country were living here in harmony.

General Manager (Thermal Power Station-Expansion) S. Gopalakrishnan said that imbibing tolerance and adopting give-and-take attitude would pave the way for harmonious living.

Employees of Thermal Station-I and Expansion, Jawahar School students and members of the Kerala Kala Samithi staged cultural programmes.
