Paying homage to legendary freedom fighter Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on his 125th birth anniversary, Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday said the country is following in his footsteps and working towards creating an India Netaji once dreamt of.
“Netaji had dreamt of a strong India, from LAC to LOC, and we are following in his footsteps,” the PM said addressing an event organised at Kolkata’s Victoria Memorial. He said that Netaji’s bravery and ideals inspire every Indian.
Modi yesterday visited Kolkata to pay tributes to Netaji and said the country bows to his love for the motherland.
“On the 125th birth anniversary of the leader, I bow to him on behalf of the grateful nation. His contribution to India is indelible. On this very day, that brave son was born, who gave a new direction to the dream of independent India...there was that consciousness in the darkness of slavery, who stood in front of the biggest power of the world and said, I will not ask you for freedom, I will take it away,” he said.
Modi said Netaji would have been immensely proud to see how India is now manufacturing its own Covid-19 vaccines and also helping other countries across the world.
