‘130-cr citizens should take pledge to make India ‘atmanirbhar’, powerful’

New Delhi, Oct 02 (PTI):
Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday exhorted the people of the country to take a pledge that they will take individual steps for making India a self-reliant and a powerful nation by the 100th anniversary of its independence. He said this consciousness of the public will lead to constructive action as envisioned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi through his schemes like ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ (self reliant India), Make in India and others.
His remarks came at an event, held at the Red Fort here, where he flagged off a 7,500-km car rally being undertaken by the National Security Guard (NSG) commandos. He also flagged in a central armed police forces cycle rally that culminated here after criss-crossing more than 41,000 km of the country as part of the ongoing celebrations of India’s 75 years of independence. If each one of the 130 crore citizens takes pledge to take the country forward and work for its development then we can make India ‘atmanirbhar’ (self reliant) and position it as a powerful nation, Shah said. He added that Modi’s clarion call to the citizens during the ‘Azadi ka Amrut Mahotsav’ aims to work as an inspiration among the citizens, resulting into action that will lead to India’s development. “I urge all the citizens of the country to come together and dedicate themselves for realising Modi ji’s dream of making India a USD 5 trillion economy and also making the country self reliant and developed.” “The events being held to celebrate India’s 75 years of independence are aimed to inspire the young generation and create a highway for India’s development,” he said. The home minister said these events are aimed at instilling the young generation with a sense of patriotism and responsibility towards the country and also to remember the role of the known and unsung heroes of the freedom struggle.
“We all were born after the independence in 1947…we may not get an opportunity to die for the country like many freedom fighters but we can live for the country and participate in the progress of the country,” he said. Shah said Modi has a vision that India, by its 100th anniversary of independence, becomes a manufacturing hub of the globe, attains self reliance and that its citizens are able to access good healthcare services like as planned under the ‘Ayushman Bharat’ scheme.
