Those who had sacrificed their lives for freedom had also worked in this eternal spirit. If they too had thought of themselves, if they had been selfish, then there wouldn’t have been any trouble in their lives too. They would have escaped from hardships, bullets, gallows, tortures, but their children, that is, we the people of India, would not have been able to celebrate the ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ today. This month of August is the month of revolution. Therefore, as a country, we have to take a pledge to not allow any such trend to grow. This is a collective responsibility of the country.
In this ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’, when the country is painted in the colours of the tricolour and independence, an incident has come to the forefront. I want to draw the nation’s attention towards it. An attempt has been made to disgrace this holy occasion and to disparage our brave freedom fighters.
It is important to understand the mentality of such people. We know that sometimes a patient gets tired of the treatment of his long-term illness when he does not get any benefit despite consulting good doctors. Then no matter how educated he is, superstition starts growing in him. He starts using sorcery and starts believing in black magic. Similarly, there are some people in our country who are trapped in the vortex of negativity and are immersed in despair. Even after telling heaps of lies against the government, the public was not ready to trust such people. In such desperation, these people are also now apparently turning towards black magic.
We have seen on 5th August how a lot of effort was made to spread black magic. These people believe that by wearing black clothes, their period of despair and frustration will end. But they don’t know that no matter how much black magic or superstition they might use, the public will never trust them again. And I would also say that with such actions, don’t try to insult the ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ or the tricolour.
Unlike the selfish policies of some political parties, our government will continue to work on the mantra of ‘Sabka Saath- Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas and Sabka Prayas’. I am sure that the energy of positive beliefs about development will continue to be generated like this. Once again, congratulations to the crores of friends, farmers and livestock rearers of Haryana. Tomorrow as a citizen, we too must reiterate our resolve to fulfil our duty towards the country. With this wish I end my speech.
