New Delhi (NVI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi today launched “Azadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav” as part of the government’s initiative to mark 75 years of independence.
Azadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav is a series of events to be organised by the Government to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of India’s Independence. The Mahotsav will be celebrated as a Jan-Utsav in the spirit of Jan-Bhagidari. It is being launched on March 12 to commemorate 91 years of Dandi March.
Today’s #AmritMahotsav programme begins from Sabarmati Ashram, from where the Dandi March began. The March had a key role in furthering a spirit of pride and Aatmanirbharta among India’s people. Going #VocalForLocal is a wonderful tribute to Bapu and our great freedom fighters.
