Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to West Bengal Live: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today paid a visit to West Bengal on the occasion of birth anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. His visit to West Bengal assumes significance as January 23 marks the 125th birth anniversary of Netaji. After reaching Kolkata, PM Modi paid a visit to Netaji Bhawan at Elgin Road. The Prime Minister presided over the inaugural function of the ‘Parakram Diwas’ celebrations at Victoria Memorial in Kolkata. Addressing ‘Parakram Diwas’ celebrations to commemorate the birth anniversary of Netaji, PM Modi said that Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose used to count poverty, illiteracy, disease, among the biggest problems of the country. He said that these problems can be solved only if society comes together. Modi said that from LAC to LOC, the world is witnessing the powerful avatar of India that was once envisioned by Netaji. He said that India today is giving a befitting reply wherever attempts are made to challenge its sovereignty. PM Modi also inaugurated commemorative stamp and coin on Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s 125th birth anniversary. The PM also detailed steps taken by his government to honour Netaji. In order to honour and remember Netaji’s indomitable spirit and selfless service to the nation, the Government of India has decided to celebrate his birthday on 23rd January every year as ‘Parakram Diwas’.

Earlier in the day, the Prime Minister distributed 1.06 lakh land pattas or allotment certificates at Jerenga Pathar in Sivasagar of Assam. Speaking at Sivasagar, PM Modi said that the double-engine BJP government is committed for overall development of Assam. He said that allotment of land pattas is a step towards ensuring rights of indigenous people of the State. In a tweet yesterday, PM Narendra Modi said that the government is committed to doing everything possible to preserve the rights and unique culture of the great state of Assam. Assam had 5.75 lakh landless families, in 2016. The present Government has distributed 2.28 lakhs land pattas/allotment certificates since May 2016. With one lakh more land pattas distributed today, around 3 lakh 30 thousand landless people have got their own land in the state. PM also praised the Sarbananda Sonowal government’s handling of COVID crisis and urged people to get vaccinated when their turn comes. PM Modi said that the Centre and state government is committed towards achieving 100 per cent electricity and LPG coverage and to supply running water to all the households of the state.
