On the occasion of 75 years of Independence, Dr. Deviya Rane hoisted the National flag at Dy. Collectors office in Valpoi, Sattari. She is the first lady MLA to have got the opportunity to salute and hoist the national flag.
During her address, she spoke about the challenges that India faced for its struggle for freedom. She said, “One is the non-violence movement of Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Jawaharlal Nehru, Lokmanya Tilak and the other is the revolutionary movement of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh, Chandrasekhar Azad. On this occasion, we salute the freedom fighters who fought for the freedom of India and Goa. Freedom fighters who sacrificed their lives for the sake of India’s freedom.”
Highlighted Sattari’s contribution to the freedom struggle of India and the many independent soldiers who took part in the freedom struggle and sacrificed their lives. Also spoke about the contribution of our ex-chief ministers, Shri Dayanand Bandodkar, Shri Pratapsingh Rane & Shri Manohar Parrikar who worked immensely and tirelessly for development of Goa and brought it on the world map.
She urged all the citizens to follow the footsteps of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji, and work collectively towards a developed country keeping aside our caste, religion, culture. Shri Narendra Modi has transformed the Nation since he took over office and brought several initiatives & schemes to the grassroots to uplift the poor and the comman man. His schemes like the Jan Dhan Yojana, Make in India, Beti Bachao Beti Padao, Ujwala, Ban on Triple Talaq, Swachh Bharat, etc, are some of the flagship schemes. He has made India a super power.
I urge each one to not oppose development or infrastructure for political gain. We should all work in our collective spirit towards an Atmanirbhar Bharat.
