Delhi,

06:

Prime
Minister
Narendra
Modi
on
Saturday
said
the
patriotic
fervour
witnessed
during
the
freedom
struggle
needed
to
be
instilled
in
the
current
generation
and
channelised
for
nation-building.
Addressing
the
third
national
committee
meeting
on
‘Azadi
Ka
Amrit
Mahotsav’,
he
said
the
programme’s
emotional
flavour
is
the
core
of
the
campaign
which
is
creating
an
atmosphere
of
“patriotic
zeal”
in
the
country.

“The
patriotic
fervour
which
was
witnessed
during
the
freedom
struggle
was
unprecedented.
It
is
the
same
fervour
which
we
need
to
imbibe
in
our
current
generation
and
channelise
it
for
nation
building,”
he
said.

Amrit Mahotsav golden opportunity to establish youths emotional connect with nation-building: PM Modi

“It
is
a
golden
opportunity
to
establish
the
emotional
connect
of
our
youth
with
nation
building,”
an
official
statement
quoting
him
said.
The
prime
minister
also
noted
that
the
success
of
Azadi
ka
Amrit
Mahotsav
is
due
to
the
contribution
of
every
citizen
of
the
country,
and
the
committees
at
national,
state
and
district
levels
have
been
working
day
and
night
to
take
it
to
the
masses.

In
his
closing
remarks,
he
said
the
national
unity
must
be
nourished
and
nurtured
to
promote
India
as
“Ek
Bharat
Shrestha
Bharat”
because
a
united
nation
is
a
progressive
nation.
In
this
light,
he
noted,
‘Tiranga’ is
a
symbol
of
unity,
which
brings
positivity
and
prosperity
for
the
nation.

It
is
a
“Sanskar
Utsav”
(festival
of
values)
for
the
youth
which
will
fill
them
with
the
undying
passion
to
contribute
for
the
country,
he
said.
“The
current
generation
will
be
the
leaders
of
tomorrow
and
therefore,
we
have
to
inculcate
in
them
now
a
sense
of
duty
and
responsibility
to
realise
the
dreams
and
vision
of
India@100,” he
said.

Noting
that
the
technological
revolution
has
stepped
up
the
speed
of
change
tremendously
and
what
could
be
achieved
in
generations
is
now
possible
in
decades,
he
said
one
cannot
rely
on
old
techniques
to
realize
dreams
of
our
nation.

It
is
therefore
important
to
build
the
capacity
of
the
youth
and
to
equip
them
with
the
necessary
skills
to
meet
the
technological
challenges
of
times
to
come,
Modi
said.
Highlighting
the
contribution
of
tribal
freedom
fighters,
the
prime
minister
said
tributes
should
be
paid
to
them
by
building
local
tribal
museums.

He
suggested
that
a
border
village
programme
should
be
taken
up
for
the
youth
to
familiarise
them
with
the
life
of
people
residing
there.
Similarly,
the
programme
to
construct
75
ponds
in
every
district
and
similar
such
programmes
should
be
designed
in
a
way
which
is
conducive
for
water
and
environment
conservation.

The
youth
should
be
familiarised
with
such
programmes
to
help
them
understand
the
ground
realities
of
the
country,
he
said.
Addressing
the
committee,
Union
Home
Minister
Amit
Shah
said
more
than
60,000
programmes
have
been
organised
successfully
in
the
country
till
date
and
the
campaign
has
percolated
down
from
the
national
to
the
state,
district
and
grassroots
level.

The
programme
commenced
on
March
13
last
year
launching
a
75-week
countdown
to
India’s
75th
anniversary
of
independence
and
will
end
on
August
15
next
year.
Meanwhile,
Trinamool
Congress
sources
claimed
West
Bengal
Chief
Minister
Mamata
Banerjee
was
not
given
a
chance
to
speak
at
the
meeting.

She
wanted
to
highlight
her
state’s
contribution
to
freedom
struggle,
they
said.
Members
of
the
national
committee
who
attended
the
meeting
included
the
Lok
Sabha
speaker,
governors,
Union
ministers,
chief
ministers,
other
political
leaders,
officials,
media
personalities,
spiritual
Leaders,
artists
and
film
personalities
and
eminent
persons
from
other
walks
of
life,
the
statement
said.

Several
participants
also
joined
the
meeting
virtually.
Culture
ministry
secretary
Govind
Mohan
gave
a
presentation
on
the
overview
of
activities
of
Azadi
Ka
Amrit
Mahotsav
since
its
inception.
The
first
meeting
of
the
National
Committee
was
held
on
March
8
before
the
launch
of
the
campaign
and
the
second

22.

Modi
said
India
is
passing
through
an
era
of
“Amrit
Kaal”
realising
its
resolves
and
this
will
take
the
country
to
the
“peak
of
success”
in
the
next
25
years.
