HYDERABAD: The first couple of the state, governor ESL Narasimhan and his wife Vimala Narasmihan, set a new tradition of greeting people from all walks of life on the New Year Day.

They received and met people of all ages, school children and grownups alike, who went to the Raj Bhavan on Sunday to greet the couple. The governor and his wife stood for two and a half hours, receiving visitors and speaking with them. Wishing the people a happy New Year, Narasimhan appealed to the youth to take advantage of the Rajiv Yuva Kiranalu scheme to get employment. In the next one year the government would show them five lakh jobs, he said.

The day was unforgettable for the children of municipal sweepers studying at Sarvasikhsa Abhiyan School at Himayatnagar as they could see the governor and speak with him. Ushodaya Organisation, a city NGO, had its diploma in computer application certificates distributed to the physically challenged by the governor. Deputy CM Damodar Rajanarsimha, home minister P Sabitha Indra Reddy and others attended.
