The Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi today inaugurated ‘‘Swachhagraha Bapu Ko Karyanjali” exhibition to mark 100th Anniversary of Champaran Satyagrah at the National Archives of India (NAI).
He also launched an Online Interactive Quiz “Karyanjali”, which will continue for 30 months till October, 2019. A musical and dance programme based on the banned literature on Mahatma Gandhi and Swachhagraha entitled “Satya, Swachh, Sur” was presented on the occasion.
Addressing the gathering on the occasion, the Prime Minister said that 100 years ago, Mahatma Gandhi reached Champaran and witnessed the hardships of people living there. Gandhi Ji showed them the path to and power of peaceful Satyagrah.
Champaran Satyagraha catapulted Gandhi Ji to the forefront of India’s freedom struggle. He said that the exhibition, interactive quiz, and dance performance are not only formalities, but are pious occasions to dedicate ourselves to the nation.
“Along with Shraddhanjali, we should also offer Karyanjali to Mahatma Gandhi,” the Prime Minister added. He emphasised that Gandhi Ji was basically a Swachhagrahi and was awakening the thought process of the people of India.
He pointed out that Champaran can be described as the place of origin of Swachhata Andolan and Champaran Satyagrah gave a new impetus to the freedom struggle.
