New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will kick off a mega BJP campaign ‘70 Saal Azadi-yaad Karo Kurbani’ on 9 August, the 75th year of Quit India movement, and virtually the entire council of ministers will travel across the country to “rekindle the spirit of patriotism".

Senior party leader M Venkaiah Naidu announced the details of ‘70 saal azadi-yaad karo kurbani’ (70 years of Independence-recall the sacrifices) programme firmed up in the parliamentary party meeting. “The idea is to rekindle the spirit of patriotism among the people to convey to the new generation the sacrifices made by our leaders who fought for the freedom movement and recall the great valour shown by them," said Naidu.

Referring to incidents like the Kakori case, Jalianwala Bagh massacre, Dandi March and Quit India movement, he said party leaders and union ministers will visit places associated with the freedom movement and pay tribute to leaders while recalling their contributions. “Incidents like Kakori, Quit India movement, Dandi March will be recalled so that younger generation can take inspiration from the same. The Prime Minister will launch the campaign on 9 August," he said. The party will also observe a Tiranga Yatra from 15-22 August. PTI
