Today is important for all three wings of the Indian Army – Amit Shah
Meanwhile, Union Home Minister Amit Shah today unfurled the tricolor in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands on the occasion of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s 126th birth anniversary. During this he said, today is an important day for all the three wings of the Indian Army. Today, with the initiative of the Prime Minister, an attempt has been made to perpetuate the memory of our 21 Paramveer Chakra winners by associating them with the names of the 21 largest islands of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The Home Minister said today, when the country’s independence progressed and Netaji tried to liberate the country with the efforts of the Azad Hind Fauj, even then this part got the honor of getting freedom first in the country and on this island from the hands of Netaji. Our tricolor was hoisted for the first time.
Officials told that Netaji had hoisted the national flag at the Gymkhana ground here on December 30, 1943 and Shah is hoisting the flag at the same place today. The name of this ground is now ‘Netaji Stadium’ Is. Shah is also likely to visit the Cellular Jail where many freedom fighters were kept during India’s freedom struggle.
