Paris: The UK government has decided to issue a commemorative coin to mark the 150th birthday anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.
As per reports, Britain’s Chancellor of the Exchequer Sajid Javid announced this on Thursday at the annual GG2 ceremony in London to celebrate the British Asian success.
“Tonight’s awards celebrate the 150th birthday of Gandhi – a fitting time to announce that I’ve asked the Royal Mint of the UK to propose a new commemorative coin in his honour. We should never forget what Gandhi taught the world,” Javid said.
Javid has topped the power list released annually by the Asian Media Group (AMG), UK-based publishers behind the GG2.
