Delhi Congress president JP Agarwal has extended his greetings and best wishes to the people of Delhi, particularly those hailing from Valmiki Samaj, on the occasion of Maharishi Valmiki Jayanti. Agarwal said Maharishi Valmiki was revered not just by one section or religious groups but by all as he was a great saint of Bharat. He said Maharishi Valmikiā€™s greatest literary work Ramayan was the grandest and oldest epic in the universe which could be rivalled by none. He said Ramayan opened up a great vista of knowledge and it was also an evocative treatise on human bonding and failings.

Congress leader said the personality of Maharishi and his greatest work were so mesmerising and enchanting that generations of people have emulated the wisdom enunciated in the epic in their daily life.
