A joint resolution to honor the life and work of Mahatma Gandhi who dedicated his life to fighting injustice with nonviolence and peaceful resistance was adopted by the Colorado House of Representatives and the Colorado Senate on Friday, 12 February 2016 at the Colorado State Capitol, Denver, Colorado.   
 
State Representative Dr. Janak Joshi, House District 16, who is the first Indo American legislator in the Colorado General Assembly, prime sponsored the bill with backing and co-prime sponsorship of State Representative Dr. Joann Ginal, and most members of the Colorado House of Representatives, including the sponsorship of Speaker of the House Ms. Dickey Lee Hullinghorst. The resolution was unanimously passed with bipartisan support.  The Colorado Senate also separately passed a similar resolution at the sponsorship of State Senator Mr. Kent Lambert.  
 
Mr. Harish Parvathaneni, Consul General of India in Houston joined several members of the House of Representatives, Indo American members of the cabinet of Governor Mr. John Hickenlooper and prominent leaders of the Indian American community in reading the resolution.   
 
Consul General Harish said he was deeply humbled to see the numerous ways in which the life, writings and political approaches of Mahatma Gandhi fundamentally motivated and changed people around the world, including so many of the elected representatives of the State of Colorado. Consul General said that this is an important initiative to commemorate Mahatma Gandhi and his message that has far greater relevance today. Consul General thanked members of the Colorado House of Representatives, Senator Kent Lambert, Rep. Janak Joshi, Prof. Ved Nanda and the entire Indian American community for their support and commitment to the Gandhi Resolution Day.
