The foundation day of eight states and five union territories was celebrated at the Raj Bhavan in Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh, on Wednesday.

November 1 is the foundation day of Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Haryana, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Tamil Nadu and the union territories of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Chandigarh, Delhi, Lakshadweep and Puducherry.

Andhra Pradesh Governor S Abdul Nazeer offered floral tributes to the portrait of Amarajeevi Potti Sriramulu on the occasion.

The Governor further said that India's rich cultural heritage and history and the development of the country is based on the principles of non-violence, justice, diversity of languages, culture, and religion, all tied in a thread of unity. The 'Ek Bharat Shresth Bharat' programme aims to forge a strong relationship and bonding among all the people of the country and promote mutual understanding between different states and Union Territories through the concept of one nation, one people.
