PM Modi participates in 125th birth anniversary celebrations of Sitaram Raju
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that for the first time after independence, tribal museums are being set up to showcase tribal pride and heritage in the country.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi participated in the 125th birth anniversary celebrations of freedom fighter Alluri Sitarama Raju in Bhimavaram. Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y. s. Jagan Mohan Reddy was also present. Today, where the country is celebrating 75 years of independence, it is also the occasion of 125th birth anniversary of Alluri Sitaram Raju. Incidentally, at the same time, 100 years of the Rampa revolution for the country's independence are also being completed.
In his address on the occasion, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that 125th birth anniversary of Alluri Sitaram Raju and 100th anniversary of Rampa Kranti will be celebrated throughout the year. The freedom struggle is not just a history of a few years, of a few areas, or of a few people. This history is the history of sacrifice, tenacity and sacrifices of every nook and corner of India. When Sitaram Raju Garu started the war against the atrocities of the foreign rule, his age was only 24-25 years. At the young age of 27, he became a martyr for this Mother India.
The Alluri Sitarama Raju Memorial Tribal Freedom Fighters Museum is also being built in Lambasingi, Andhra Pradesh. Today, it is the responsibility of all of us countrymen to fulfill the dreams of these fighters in Amritkal. Our new India should be the India of their dreams. An India in which poor, farmers, laborers, backward, tribals have equal opportunities for all.
