Prime Minister Narendra Modi Celebrates Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose

India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, has recently expressed his admiration for the 127th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, a prominent independence activist. Modi stated that Bose’s stance against “the mentality of slavery” has been a guiding light, inspiring India to become a developed nation. This story comes from the source of Reader Wall.

Reminder of India’s Freedom Fighter

Modi addressed an event commemorate Bose’s birth—celebrated as ‘Parakram Diwas’ since 2021 in India—at the Red Fort, expressing his hopes that Bose’s sacrifice would continue to inspire the youth of India.

“Netaji showcased India’s image as the mother of democracy before the world. He would have been proud of the new consciousness and pride pervading the young generation of today’s India.” Modi said. “I hope this inspiration is always carried forward.”

Bose and Democracy in India

Modi highlighted Bose’s belief in a strong political democracy. However, he lamented that this idea was attacked after independence, stating that nepotism, dynasticism, and few families gaining control over politics and economy impeded India’s development.

A Vision of a Developed India

The Prime Minister asserted that since coming to power in 2014, his government has striven for “Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas”, in alignment with Bose’s vision for India. Modi expressed gratitude for being able to do more for the Azad Hind Fauj, or the Indian National Army, than any other administration since India’s independence.

“India is busy connecting the entire world as a ‘Vishwa Mitra’ (friend of the world) and it is working forward to provide solutions to the world’s challenges,” Modi said.

Dedication to National Interests

Addressing the importance of the next 25 years for India, known as “Amrit Kaal”, the PM suggested dedicating every moment towards national interests.

“We must work hard, and we must be brave. This is critical to building a Viksit Bharat [Developed India]. Parakram Diwas will remind us of this resolution every year,” he added.

2047: A Developed India

During the event, the PM revealed a goal for India to be a developed nation by 2047, emphasizing a need to strengthen economic prosperity, cultural strength, and strategic capability.

“…it is important that in next five years we become the third largest economic power in the world and this goal is not far from our reach. Today India is achieving goals which could have never have been imagined earlier,” Modi stated.

“Bharat Parv” Showcase Event

During the event, Modi launched “Bharat Parv”, a showcase set to run from January 23 to January 31, aiming to display the country’s diversity with Republic Day Tableaux and cultural exhibits, featuring efforts of 26 ministries and departments.

Call for National Devotion

Finally, Modi recalled his call for devotion to the country from the Ram Temple consecration ceremony on Monday, expressing the goal to contribute to the nation’s work. He added, “These last few days of the month of January are becoming very inspiring for our faith, our cultural consciousness, our republic and our patriotism.”
