He said that the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has put three objectives in front of the people to celebrate the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav. Firstly, the youth of the country should be made aware of the freedom struggle and the history of before independence. Second, to feel proud about the achievements of 75 years. Thirdly, by making the journey of 75 to 100 years a journey of resolutions, taking a pledge to make India first in every field of the world.

He said that this policy has brought our education out of narrow thinking.

He said that it is based on Indian values but also includes all the elements of Modern education.
