Encourage Youth for Community Service as Part of 75th I-Day Celebrations, Says Odisha CM at Preparatory Meeting
Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today suggested that service-oriented activities can be part of the program to encourage community service among the youth as part of the 75th Independence celebrations. Speaking at the 75th Independence celebration preparatory meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Naveen said, “Service oriented activities can be part of the program to encourage community service among the citizens especially the youth”. As quoted by Gandhiji “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others”. Service oriented activities can be part of the program to encourage community service among the citizens especially the youth, Naveen said. “With the passage of time, the youth of our country need to be reminded of the sacrifices of our forefathers in a context they can identify with, one of the ways in which this can be done is to highlight the events of our freedom struggle and develop the places linked to it. We need to highlight significant events led by lesser known leaders as well as to capture the pan India nature of the movement”, the Odisha CM said. Many events that happened outside the boundaries of India need to be captured. Our greatest tribute to the founding father of our nation will be to carry forward in letter and spirit the values and ethos of our Independence movement as enshrined in the Constitution of India. The ideals of freedom, justice and equality which defined the freedom struggle need to be reiterated in today’s circumstances, he added. The CM further stated that all efforts should be made to ensure every Indian, residing anywhere in the world, should be touched through the various activities as part of the commemoration ceremonies. Through technology and social media, this is quite possible to achieve, he added.
