Calling Nirmal Maji’s comment 'unfortunate', organisation secretary-general Swami Suvirananda said the Maa Sarada's disciples are hurt.
The Constitution says the State won’t align to any one particular faith and practise anti-Dharma, he added.
He highlighted how issues like bandhs in Manipur, the Bru unrest in Mizoram-Tripura, and problems in Assam's Bodo areas were resolved.
Quoting Swami Vivekananda's philosophy on education, he said that it is the medium for making people intelligent, to bring out the inner strength of the people and give it a direction.
He claimed that 9,000 militants from the region have surrendered during the last eight years of the Narendra Modi government at the Centre.
A year-long celebration to mark the historic day got underway in the presence of Andhra Pradesh High Court Judge Justice DVSS Somayajulu.
