Union HRD minister Prakash Javadekar said he salutes all those leaders who participated in India’s freedom struggle.
While addressing a public meeting in Madhya Pradesh’s Chhindwara, Javadekar said, “The fight for independence that began in 1857 ended 90 years later when we threw the British out. We salute freedom fighters…. Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, Sardar Patel, Pandit (Jawahar Lal Nehru), Bhagat Singh and Rajguru…all those who were hanged.”
