75th Independence Day will celebrate spirit of freedom struggle, says PM Modi


This year’s Independence Day will celebrate the spirit of the freedom struggle, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Monday. “This year’s 75th Independence Day will celebrate the spirit of freedom struggle and reflect the feeling of sacrifice. In this, there should be a tribute to the martyrs of the country and a resolve to build an India of their dreams. It will have a glimpse of the pride of Sanatan India and the glow of modern India as well,” PM Modi said in Hindi while speaking at the committee meeting to mark 75 years of India’s Independence.
“We have to celebrate the festival of 75 years of independence while taking along 130 crore countrymen with us. Public participation is the basic spirit of this event,” PM Modi said. 
The Prime Minister-led panel held the first meeting on the commemoration of 75 years of India’s Independence titled ‘Azadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav’. 
“It is an opportunity to showcase to the world our achievements since 1947. We need to tell people about the sacrifice of freedom movement heroes,” he said after the virtual meeting.
The members of the committee include former president Pratibha Patil, Chief Justice of India S A Bobde, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, 28 chief ministers, artistes like Lata Mangeshkar, A R Rahman, Nobel laureate Amartya Sen, senior BJP leader L K Advani, almost all Union ministers and several governors.
Opposition leaders like Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury, NCP leader Sharad Pawar, TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee and former Uttar Pradesh chief ministers Mulayam Singh Yadav and Mayawati are also part of the panel.
India is going to celebrate its 75th Independence Day this year. On January 31, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2021’s first Mann ki Baat had appealed to the countrymen to write about freedom fighters and stories of their struggle to mark the country’s 75th Independence Day this year.
