A bust of Mahatma Gandhi was inaugurated in a village named after the fourth such monument to be erected in the country, over 44 per cent of the population of which consists of people of Indian origin whose forefathers came here from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar between 1845 and 1917.

The inauguration ceremony last week in Gandhi village, which was so named in the late 1960s, was attended by village leaders and school children.

Speaking on the occasion, Gupta said, "Gandhi was a unique human being who was able to mobilize the Indian people against the mighty British Empire, and in this exercise he won. His struggle was inserted in the history books of the world, not only as an Indian experiment, but an universal one for emulation."
