PM praises Meghalaya for AmritMahotsav celebrations in State

Shillong, Jul 31:Prime Minister Narendra Modi appreciated the efforts of Meghalaya to celebrate Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav and recalled the valor of the State’s brave warrior U Tirot Singh during his 91st episode of Mann Ki Baat.

He expressed happiness in the way the Amrit Mahotsav took the form of mass movement across the country. Lauding the citizens for embracing the Mahotsav to mark the 75th year of India’s independence, the PM said, “One such event took place in Meghalaya earlier this month. People remembered the brave warrior of Meghalaya U. Tirot Singh on his death anniversary. Tirot Singh ji fiercely opposed the British conspiracy to control the Khasi Hills and destroy the culture there. Many artists gave beautiful performances in this program. They made history come alive. A carnival was also organized as part of the event, in which the great culture of Meghalaya was depicted in a beautiful manner.”

The 91st episode of Mann Ki Baat was aired days ahead of Independence Day. “This time ‘Mann Ki Baat’ is very special. The reason for this is Independence Day this time, when India will complete 75 years of her independence,” shared the PM.
