Ahead of India’s 75th Independence day on August 15, 2022, Prime Minister of the country, Narendra Modi sang the praises of the sacrifices of India’s heroic freedom fighters. He said he is happy to note that Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is taking the form of a mass movement, offering his humble tributes to the revolutionaries who made multiple sacrifices to obtain freedom for the country.
He urged people to put Tiranga as their profile picture on their social media platforms between August 2 and 15. Modi said India will see a splendid and historic moment as the country celebrates the 75th anniversary of Independence on August 15 this year. At the 91st episode of Mann Ki Baat special, Modi said, “The almighty has blessed us with this great fortune. Think about it.. Had we been born in the era of slavery, then how would we have imagined this day? That yearning for freedom from the shackles of subjugation, how formidable it must have been!”
Modi exhorted the nation to remember that millions of our countrymen fought for independence every single day and sacrificed for the sake of freedom.
He said imagine waking up every morning dreaming about the independence of India and eventually dedicating our lives to the freedom movement, chanting Vande Mataram and Bharat Maata Ki Jai for a better future for our country and the generations to come. He also said that 75 railway stations have been identified spread over 24 states across the country. These 75 stations are being decorated lavishly. Many types of programmes are also being held on these stations. You should also take out time to visit one such historical station.
Referring to the heroism of Indian freedom fighters Modi said, “Friends, on July 31, all of us countrymen salute the martyrdom of Shaheed Udham Singh ji. I offer my humble tributes to all such other great revolutionaries who sacrificed their all for the country.”
