New Delhi (NVI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi today paid tributes to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose on the eve of his birth anniversary while recalling the freedom fighter’s special connection to Haripura, a town in Gujarat.

In a series of tweets, PM Modi remembered Subhash Chandra Bose’s visit to Haripura in 1938.

“Tomorrow, India will mark #ParakramDivas, the Jayanti of the great Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. Among the various programmes being organised across the nation, one special programme is being held at Haripura in Gujarat. Do join the programme, which begins at 1 PM,” he tweeted.

The Prime Minsiter said that Haripura has a special relation with Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. “It was at the historic Haripura Session of 1938 that Netaji Bose took up the Presidentship of the Congress Party. Tomorrow’s programme at Haripura will be a tribute to Netaji Bose’s contribution to our nation,” he said.

“On the eve of Netaji Bose’s Jayanti, my mind goes back to 23rd January 2009- the day we launched e-Gram Vishwagram Project from Haripura. This initiative revolutionised Gujarat’s IT infrastructure and took the fruits of technology to the poor, in the remotest parts of the state,” PM Modi said.

“I can never forget the affection of the people of Haripura, who took me through an elaborate procession on the same road as Netaji Bose was taken, in 1938. His procession included a decorated chariot drawn by 51 bullocks. I also visited the place where Netaji stayed in Haripura,” the PM said in another tweet.

“May the thoughts and ideals of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose keep inspiring us to work towards building an India that he would be proud of…a strong, confident and self-reliant India, whose human-centric approach contributes to a better planet in the years to come,” PM said ahead of Netaji’s birth anniversary tomorrow.
