At India Gate, Prime Minister Narendra Modi presented a hologram of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. This hologram will remain in place until the Netaji statue is finished. The statue will be unveiled in the same location to commemorate Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s 125th birthday, which will be celebrated for a year.
During the investiture ceremony, the Prime Minister also presented Subhas Chandra Bose the Aapda Prabandhan Puraskars for the years 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022. This award was created by the Union Government to recognise and honour Indian individuals and organisations who have made major achievements and provided selfless service in the field of disaster management.
On the 125th anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s birth, the Prime Minister paid tribute to the valiant son of Mother India. In his remarks to the crowd, he stated that this statue is a grateful nation’s tribute to a hero of freedom, and that it will continue to remind our institutions and generations of the importance of national service.
Few words by PM
“Never lose faith in the dream of independent India, there is no power in the world that can shake India,” the Prime Minister said, quoting Netaji. He went on to say, “Today, our goal is to realise India’s dreams of independence. We want to establish a new India before the 100th anniversary of freedom.” The Prime Minister stated that the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’s main resolve is to restore India’s identity and inspirations.
The Prime Minister expressed sadness that, along with the country’s culture and customs, many great persons’ contributions were obliterated after independence.
On the occasion of Parakram Diwas last year, the Prime Minister recalled his emotional visit to Netaji’s ancestral home in Kolkata. The Prime Minister added that he will never forget October 21, 2018, when the Azad Hind government celebrated its 75th anniversary. “I had hoisted the tricolour while donning the Azad Hind Fauj headgear in a special ceremony conducted at the Red Fort. That was a wonderful, unforgettable moment “, he explained.
No power, according to the Prime Minister, could stop Netaji Subhash if he was committed to do something. “We need to move forward in the spirit of Netaji Subhash’s ‘Can Do, Will Do,'” he remarked.
The Prime Minister also examined the country’s catastrophe management progress throughout time. However, the earthquake in Gujarat in 2001 revolutionised disaster management forever. “All departments and ministries have been assigned to relief and rescue efforts. The Gujarat State Disaster Management Act was enacted in 2003 as a result of those experiences.
