On August 15, Prime Minister Narendra Modi bestowed honours on Jawaharlal Nehru in recognition of his achievements to the independence movement and the development of the country. In addition, PM Modi mentioned Ram Manohar Lohia, BR Ambedkar, and Mahatma Gandhi during his speech.

In a speech from the Red Fort’s ramparts on the 76th anniversary of the nation’s independence, Prime Minister Modi thanked Bapu (Mahatma Gandhi), Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, and Vinayak Savarkar for dedicating their lives to upholding morality.

Ram Prasad Bismil, Ashfaqulla Khan, Bhagat Singh, Rajguru, Sukhdev, Mangal Pandey, and Tatya Tope are some individuals who deserve praise for their contributions to the nation. According to Modi, such a large number of revolutionaries upended the entire premise of British rule.

He asserted that the people of India are proud of the strength of women like Rani Laxmibai, Jhalkari Bai, Rani Chennamma, and Begum Hazrat Mahal. Indian women, in Modi’s opinion, stand for hardship and sacrifice.

In addition to battling for the country’s freedom, the prime minister recognised people like Jawaharlal Nehru, Ram Manohar Lohia, and Sardar Vallabhai Patel for their contributions to nation-building initiatives following Independence.

“India has been home to great thinkers like Vivekananda, Aurobindo and Rabindranath Tagore,” he said.

Additionally, PM Modi paid tribute to Acharya Vinod Bhave, Deendayal Upadhyaya, Nanaji Deshmukh, Syama Prasad Mookerjee, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, and Acharya Lal Bahadur Shastri.

Veteran Congressman Jairam Ramesh criticised Basavaraj Bommai for leaving out India’s first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, from a newspaper advertisement for the Har Ghar Tiranga campaign.

Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is running a campaign called “Har Ghar Tiranga” to encourage people to bring the Tricolor home and hoist it in remembrance of India’s 75th anniversary of independence. Celebrities and commoners alike have gotten involved in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign to remember the momentous day by putting the Tricolour as their social media profile picture.
