Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday led the nation in remembering Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on his 125th birth anniversary which has been marked as Parakram Divas or the day of valour by the Union government.
"I bow before India's great son Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose -- a great freedom fighter and true son of Mother India, on his birth anniversary. A grateful nation will always remember his sacrifice and dedication for the independence of the country.#ParakramDivas," PM Modi tweeted earlier in the day.
He will be in Kolkata later participating in two programmes, one at the National Library and the other at Victoria Memorial Hall.
"There was an infinite flow of immense courage and unique resolve of power within Subhas Babu. His amazing personality and vibrant voice created the tidal wave in people's heart to achieve freedom. His life is an inspiration for the youth of this country," tweeted Home Minister Shah and paid floral tributes in Guwahati before Bose's statue. - IANS
