Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone for Amrit Vatika and Amrit Mahotsav Memorial and launched the Mera Yuva Bharat (MY Bharat) platform, designed for the country’s youth, at an event marking the culmination of the “Meri Maati Mera Desh” campaign’s Amrit Kalash Yatra at Kartavya Path in New Delhi Tuesday, coinciding with the closing ceremony of the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav.
Addressing the gathering, Modi recalled how the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav was initiated in March 2021, inspired by the Dandi March. “Just as the Dandi March saw increasing participation from the people, the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav witnessed such massive public engagement that it created a new chapter in our history.”
Union Home Minister Amit Shah said, “Today, at the culmination of the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, marks the beginning of Amrit-kaal.”
Modi said the MY Bharat platform will play a pivotal role in nation-building in the 21st century. He lauded the collective strength of Indian youth and praised the ‘Meri Maati, Mera Desh’ as an example of how the youth can organise and achieve their goals.
