As we mark Azadi ka Amrit Mohtsav today, Shri Piyush Goyal has said that we should take a pledge to ensure that the message of Swadeshi and self-reliance in India continues and that Indian products are given priority.
At Gandhi Darshan, Rajghat, Shri Goyal hoisted the National Flag in commemoration of the Azadi ka Amrit Mohotsav being celebrated from 13-15 August 2022. He visited Rashtriya Swachhta Kendra and viewed a digital exhibition that chronicled India’s journey to becoming an open defecation-free nation on 2 October 2019.
The Minister also administered the Har Ghar Tiranga Pledge at the event. A shawl was presented to the family members of freedom fighters as a token of his appreciation.
Minister Goyal said, today it is a moment of immense pride for us that the whole country is giving the message to the world, of entering the next 25 years of Amrit Kaal by uniting and hoisting the Tricolour at home.
As a tribute to Mahatma Gandhi, Shri Goyal noted that Gandhiji was instrumental in bringing everyone together for Satyagraha in the struggle for Indian freedom. A glimpse of Bapu’s dream of Swachh Bharat was seen today in the Swachhata Museum, he said, as Narendra Modi launched a campaign in 2014 to realize that dream.
During this Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, Shri Goyal said, “Let us resolve to take India forward faster and make this a developed and prosperous country in the next 25 years.”
India is poised to become the world’s growth engine, he stated confidently.
During the course of the day, Shri Goyal also visited the Vanijya Bhawan exhibition on the horrors of partition.
