Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose Birth Anniversary: Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid homage to Subhas Chandra Bose on the eve of the 125th birth anniversary of the freedom fighther. The centre has made elaborate plans to mark Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose's Jayanti, which will be observed as Parakram Diwas (Courage Day). "May the thoughts and ideals of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose keep inspiring us to work towards building an India that he would be proud of...a strong, confident and self-reliant India, whose human-centric approach contributes to a better planet in the years to come," PM Modi wrote on Twitter.  

In a series of tweets, PM Modi wrote about the Haripura Congress session in Gujarat, where Subhas Chandra Bose was unanimously elected the president of the Indian National Congress. "Haripura has a special relation with Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. It was at the historic Haripura Session of 1938 that Netaji Bose took up the Presidentship of the Congress Party...," PM Modi wrote on the microblogging site. As part of the Parakram Diwas celebrations, "one special programme is being held at Haripura in Gujarat. Do join the programme, which begins at 1 PM," PM Modi said. 

The Prime Minister posted throwback pictures of his visit to Haripura as the chief minister of Gujarat and recalled the occasion in 2009 when the Gujarat government had launched the e-Gram Vishwagram Project from Haripura on Subhas Chandra Bose's birth anniversary. "This initiative revolutionised Gujarat's IT infrastructure and took the fruits of technology to the poor, in the remotest parts of the state," PM Modi said, adding that he "also visited the place where Netaji stayed in Haripura."
