NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi asserted that the country has attained several historic achievements during Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav and urged people to begin the journey of Amrit Kaal towards making India a developed nation by 2047.
Addressing a function at Kartavya Path in New Delhi on October31, marking the culmination of the Meri Maati Mera Desh campaign’s Amrit Kalash Yatra, PM Modi said the campaign illustrated the strength of India’s collective spirit in advancing the nation.
A new record
Drawing an analogy to the Dandi March Yatra which saw the participation of every Indian, PM Modi drew attention to the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav creating a new record of people’s participation. “Dandi March reignited the flame of independence while Amrit Kaal is turning out to be the resolution of the 75-year-old journey of India’s development journey”, he said.
He said that the sacred soil will serve as a wellspring of motivation, propelling people to redouble their efforts toward realising the vision of a ‘Viksit Bharat’. “India’s soil has consciousness. It has a life form that has prevented the downfall of civilization”, he said, noting how a multitude of civilisations have collapsed while India still stands strong. “The soil of India creates an affinity for the soul towards spirituality”, he said During the event, PM Modi inaugurated the Amrit Vatika and Amrit Mahotsav Memorial and said the memorial will remind the next generation of today’s historic event.
MY Bharat platform
The Prime Minister also launched Mera Yuva Bharat (MY Bharat) platform for youths. During the event, he applied ’tilak’ on his forehead with the soil brought during Amrit Kalash Yatra.
The event was attended by several Union Ministers including Amit Shah, Piyush Goyal and Anurag Singh Thakur and BJP President JP Nadda among others.
