All stakeholders have an equal role to play in taking the country to the next level, HCL founder and chairman Shiv Nadar on Tuesday said at Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s (RSS) Vijayadashmi function at Reshimbagh ground in Nagpur, Maharashtra.
"Government alone cannot take the country to the next level, we need equal involvement from all stakeholders," said Nadar.
Nadar was the chief guest at the RSS' annual Dussehra event this year.
"The country faces many challenges, but the government alone cannot solve the problems. Private sector, citizens, NGOs
The Vijayadashmi function is an annual fixture in the RSS calendar and is oganised on Dussehra, a festival that celebrates the victory of good over evil. Touching upon the significance of the occasion Nadar said that defeating evil is a continuous struggle.
"Dussehra celebrates the triumph of Lord Rama over Ravana, dharma over adharma...good over evil. The mythic win of good over evil is never absolute, never complete. It's a continuous struggle to defeat the evil within and outside.”
With a net worth of $11.1 billion, Nadar is one of the richest men in India, having accumulated most of his wealth with the success of information technology major HCL which he founded in 1976.
