NEW DELHI: Union Minister Jitendra Singh on Monday said India has shown to the world that despite the crippling coronavirus crisis, the show goes on here as smoothly as during the pre-pandemic times.
He was speaking after inaugurating the IAS professional course phase-II (2018 batch) at Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration, Mussoorie through video conference.
Singh, the Minister of State for Personnel, said that civil services in 2020 have assumed a pan-Indian character in true sense as it has representation from almost all states and union territories in the last couple of years.
He said, for a heterogeneous country like India, it’s a huge asset and in tune with the dream of the founding father of civil services in the country — Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. (AGENCIES)
