He also shared a news clipping of JP Narayan’s appeal for a ‘hartal’ and quoted quoted him – “August 9 has become a burning symbol of our national revolution?.
“Inspired by Bapu, the Quit India Movement witnessed remarkable participation from people across all sections of society including greats like JP and Dr. Lohia,” he said.
