He was interacting with the students of 'Dayanand Vidyalaya' after unveiling the statue of Mahatma Gandhi at Rajghat on the occasion of the 148th birth anniversary of the Father of the Nation.

Underlining that Gandhi's teachings are immortal, the vice-president said the Mahatma's desire to build 'Ram Rajya' should be properly understood and requested the government and the people to work in that direction, an official release said.

'Ram Rajya' means an ideal rule, where there is no fear, hunger, corruption, exploitation and discrimination, Naidu said.

"It is our duty at various levels and we must all work for the ideals of Rama Rajya and... the expectations of Mahatma Gandhi," Naidu added.

Housing and Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Singh Puri, among other dignitaries, were present on the occasion.
