Quit India movement 75th Anniversary: On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the historic Quit India movement, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday saluted all the great women and men who took part in the movement. In a series of tweets, he said, “On the 75th anniversary of the historic Quit India movement, we salute all the great women & men who took part in the movement.” While talking about the role of the Father of Nation Mahatma Gandhi in the movement, PM wrote, “Under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi, the entire nation came together with the aim of attaining freedom.” He added, “In 1942, the need of the hour was to free India from colonialism. Today, 75 years later the issues are different.”

PM Modi then went on to talk about the future of the country and urge people to form a ‘New India’ and said, “Let us pledge to free India from poverty, dirt, corruption, terrorism, casteism, communalism & create a ‘New India’ of our dreams by 2022.” He added, “Let us work shoulder to shoulder to create the India that our freedom fighters would be proud of. #SankalpSeSiddhi.”

Here are the tweets by PM Narendra Modi-

As the nation observes the 75th Anniversary of the Quit India Movement, a number of events are being planned at local levels. As PM Modi mentioned in his tweets, the theme of this year is ‘Sankalp Se Siddhi’ which means attainment through resolve.

Earlier in the week, during the monthly edition of PM’s radio show Mann Ki Baat, Prime Minister Narendra Modi called for launching the mega campaign ‘Sankalp Se Siddhi’. He even urged youth, student organisations and NGOs to organise group discussions to bring forth new ideas, according to ANI. PM Modi then went on to term the month of August as a month of revolution as the non-cooperation movement was launched on August 1, 1920, the Quit-India movement on August 9, 1942 and on August 15, 1947 India became independent.
