Dehradun, 20 May: A ‘Parakram Mahotsav’ was celebrated by Shri Guru Ram Rai University in memory of Netaji Subash Chandra Bose, here, today.
On the occasion, Chief Guest Major General Dr GD Bakshi (Retd) interacted with the students of the University. He shared many significant points about India’s freedom struggle at the varsity auditorium.
Major General Bakshi highlighted the significant role of Netaji Subash Chandra Bose in the freedom struggle. He claimed that, even after 75 years of independence, Netaji Subash Chandra Bose and the Azad Hind Fauj never got the respect that they deserved. Today, the nation demands that this respect be extended to them. As many as 26,000 out of 60,000 soldiers laid down their lives and achieved martyrdom for the nation’s freedom. He wanted a martyrs’ memorial to be set up with the names of these 26,000 martyred soldiers inscribed there to create awareness among coming generations.
He reminded that a grand statue of Netaji Subash Chandra Bose will be installed at the National War Memorial near India Gate. He expressed gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Mode for this. He said that only the burning lamps can light the new lamps. He added that the history presently taught is incomplete and must acknowledge the sacrifice of the martyrs.
The event was organised by the university’s School of Management & Commerce Studies and jointly inaugurated by Chief Guest Major General GD Bakshi (Retd), his wife Sunita Bakshi, and Vice Chancellor Dr US Rawat.
