Good governance is collective responsibility: Himachal Governor

Acharya Dev Vrat said that good governance was the collective responsibility of all of us and every person should be sensitive towards the right of fellow citizens in order to achieve the objective. He was addressing the National Law Conference on Human Rights and Good Governance organised by Maharaja Agrasen University at Baddi in district Solan.
