The government has decided to observe January 23 as ‘Parakram Diwas’ to commemorate the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. A 85-member high-level committee managed by PM Modi has been formed to plan year-round programmes to mark the 125th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will participate in the first ‘Parakram Diwas’ programme in Kolkata on January 23 on Bose’s 125th birth anniversary and inaugurate an exhibition on the grounds of National Library to mark the occasion. PM Modi will also felicitate prominent members of the Indian National Army formed by Bose and their family members in Kolkata.
Patua artistes from West Bengal will make a painting on a 400-metre-long canvas depicting Bose’s life.
