Droupadi Murmu

New Delhi: President Droupadi Murmu, who hails from a tribal community, on Sunday said that the government’s choice last year to observe November 15 as ‘Janajatiya Gaurav Divas’ is welcome because our tribal legends are not just neighborhood or provincial symbols but rather they motivate the whole country.

“Our glorious Freedom Struggle was waged bravely across the vast territory of our country. Many great freedom fighters did their duty and passed on the torch of awakening leaving little trace of their heroic deeds. Forgotten for long were many heroes and their struggles, especially among the peasant and tribal populations. The government’s decision last year to observe November 15 as ‘Janajatiya Gaurav Divas’ is welcome because our tribal heroes are not merely local or regional icons but they inspire the entire nation,” said President Murmu in her address to the country.

“For a nation, particularly an ancient one such as India, the passage of 75 years is merely a blink of an eye. But for us as individuals, it is a lifetime. Senior citizens among us have witnessed a dramatic change in their lives. They have seen how, after Independence, all the generations have toiled hard; how we met great challenges and how we have taken charge of our destiny. The lessons learned in the process will prove useful as we move towards the next milestone in the journey of the nation – the Amrit Kaal, the 25 years to the celebration of the centenary of our Independence,” she said.

The President said that India is now on course to construct an Atmanirbhar Bharat and constantly 2047, India would have completely understood the dreams of our freedom fighters.

The President said, “By the year 2047, we will have fully realized the dreams of our freedom fighters. We will have given a concrete shape to the vision of those who, led by Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar, drafted the Constitution. We are already on course to build an Atmanirbhar Bharat, an India that would have realized its true potential.”

The President said that Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav is devoted to individuals of India.

“For 75 weeks now, the nation has been commemorating these noble ideals that won us freedom. In March 2021, we began the ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ with the re-enactment of the Dandi March. This way, our celebrations began with a tribute to that watershed event that had put our struggle on the world map. This festival is dedicated to the people of India,” she said.

She expressed, “Residents from all age bunches have distinctly partaken in a progression of occasions held the nation over. This excellent celebration is proceeding with the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga Abhiyan’. The Indian tricolors are vacillating in each alcove and corner of the country. Extraordinary fearless hearts would have been excited to see the soul of the Independence Movement waking up once more on such a huge scope.”

President Murmu conveyed her lady address to the country on Sunday just before the 76th Independence Day, as indicated by a Rashtrapati Bhavan proclamation.

Droupadi Murmu, 64, a tribal hailing from Odisha, took oath as the fifteenth president on July 25. She is the most youthful and first tribal to hold the top constitutional post. She is the first president born after independence.
