PM Modi-led government had announced that Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s birth anniversary on January 23 will be celebrated as Parakram Diwas and the Republic Day celebrations from this year will start from 23rd Jan every year.
The inclusion of Netaji’s birthday is in line with the Prime Minister Narendra Modi government’s “focus to commemorate important aspects of our history and culture.”
The Centre has already renamed Howrah Kalka Mail as “Netaji Express”. Netaji’s postal stamp was released during a program at Victoria Memorial and National Library Programme in Kolkata.
The Centre also formed a high-level committee headed by Modi and comprising of ministers, experts, historians, authors, family members of Netaji and INA associates to commemorate Netaji’s 125th birth anniversary.
The Modi government took major steps in recognizing and giving long-due respect to our freedom fighters and heroes. October 31 was declared as National Unity Day to mark the birth anniversary of Sardar Patel, November 15 as Janjatiya Gaurav Divas in respect of Birsa Munda’s birth anniversary, and December 26 as Veer Baal Divas which is a tribute to the four sons of Guru Gobind Singh who were martyred.
