“I cannot forget the day of October 21, 2018, on the Red Fort”, Prime Minister Modi’s statement on Subhash Chandra Jayanti

On the occasion of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s birthday, Prime Minister Modi interacted with the people at India Gate. He unveiled a digital statue of Netaji, a hologram statue. Speaking on the occasion, he said, “The Netaji who gave us the confidence of an independent and sovereign India, who told the British with great pride, confidence and courage that I will not beg for freedom, I will get it. This statue is a tribute to the great hero of freedom from the grateful nation. This statue of Netaji Subhash will make our democratic institutions, our generations aware of our national duty. It will continue to inspire future generations. “

“Last year, the country started celebrating Netaji’s birthday as a day of strength. Today, Subhash Chandra Bose Disaster Management Award has also been given on this occasion. The award was announced inspired by Netaji’s life. We have focused on reform as well as aid, rescue and rehabilitation. We have strengthened, modernized and expanded NDRF across the country. The best practices were adopted, from technology to planning and management. Earlier, hundreds of people were killed in each cyclone, but this has not happened in recent times. The country responded to every challenge with renewed vigor. We were able to save as many lives as possible in these disasters, “said Prime Minister Modi.

“We have the goal of creating a new India before the centenary of independence. Netaji had faith in the country, because of his sentiments I can say that there is no power in the world that can stop India from achieving this goal. In the nectar festival of independence, it is resolved that India will revive its identity and inspiration. It is unfortunate that after independence, along with the culture and rites of the country, the contribution of many great personalities was erased. The freedom struggle involved the penance of millions of countrymen, but also sought to limit their history. But today, after many decades of independence, the country is correcting those mistakes, ”said Modi.

“I am fortunate to have the opportunity to visit Netaji’s ancestral home in Kolkata on the same day last year. The train from which he left Kolkata, the room, the room in which he was studying, the steps of his house, the walls of that house, his vision, all these experiences are beyond words. I will not forget the day of 21st October 2018, the 75th anniversary of Azad Hind Government. I wore the Azad Hind Fauji hat and hoisted the tricolor at a special function held at the Red Fort. That moment is wonderful, unforgettable. If Netaji Subhash decided to do something, no force could stop him. We want to move forward with the inspiration of Netaji Subhash’s ‘Can Do, Will Do’, “said Prime Minister Modi.
