On what is to be celebrated as the seventy-fifth anniversary of the “Azad Hind Government”, established by Subhash Chandra Bose; the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi joined the hoisting the Tricolour on Red Fort ceremony. The plans for the occasion that concluded as Narendra Modi joined the hoisting the Tricolour were announced by the Prime Minister on Wednesday while he was interacting with the Bhartiya Janta Party workers with the help of video conference technology.
It is a long-standing tradition that the Prime Minister hoists the Tricolour at the Red Fort only on Independence Day but this tradition was broken when Narendra Modi joined the hoisting the Tricolour on the occasion of the “Azad Hind Government” anniversary. Narendra Modi said that this gesture was to show that the Bhartiya Janta Party has immense respect for each and every individual who has served the country and that this respect goes beyond party affiliations. The Prime Minister also made note of the fact that the party he represents, celebrates the contributions of even those “neglected” by the Congress.
“We respect everybody who served the country,” was the statement when Narendra Modi joined the hoisting the Tricolour. It was also announced that he is going to lay the foundation of a museum dedicated to the “Azad Hind Fauz”. It was on the twenty-first of October in 1943 that Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose had formed the Azad Hind Government with the vision of an Independent India governed by her own people and when Narendra Modi joined the hoisting the Tricolour on the anniversary of the occasion, he not only provided a tribute to the one of the greatest leaders that the country had, he provided his vision a fulfilment and sent out the message loud and clear that dreams no matter how bold or outrageous can be realised if you have the grit and work hard enough and those dreams will be celebrated just as Netaji’s vision was celebrated when Narendra Modi joined the hoisting the Tricolour on Red Fort.
