Ever since India liberalised its economy in 1990, it has made rapid strides in international trade and produced a lot of entrepreneurs. However, the reform has to be continuous and should not be stagnated, High Court chief justice KJ Sengupta has said.

Speaking at the valedictory of the 74th All India Industrial Exhibition here on Wednesday, he said events like these symbolised national integration as they drew  businessmen from all over the country to exhibit their products.

“Exhibitions like Numaish, stand as true symbol of national integration among industrial community. They render yeoman service to public at large and provide good opportunity to entrepreneurs. Besides, they bridge the geographical and political differences,” he noted.

For the first time, a legal aid cell was  set up by the Andhra Pradesh High Court at the exhibition. About 2,000 people sought legal aid and 1,100 registered for further legal assistance, Sengupta said.

“No matter whatever one’s problem is, law has a solution. Law has such a significant role in our life that it operates from an individual’s birth to death. Although, there are plenty of solutions offered by law, we are unable to benefit from it because of our ignorance of law,” he pointed out.

Describing the industrial exhibition here as one of biggest in the country, Exhibition Society secretary Ashwin Margam said that about 22 lakh people have visited the exhibition this year. “The profit garnered during the 46-day event will be channelised to welfare programmes. About 18 institutes are run on the monetary support provided by the Society. Besides, 35,000 students in Telangana are supported financially,” he added.

Panchayat raj minister and president of the Exhibition Society K Jana Reddy said that the exhibition had grown from strength to strength over 74 years. “The annual event, started in 1938, was visited by former prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru and former president Rajendra Prasad,” he recalled.
