The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today called upon the NCC cadets to dedicate their lives to the nation and the welfare of its people. Addressing cadets from across the country on the occasion of the NCC Rally, the Prime Minister urged NCC cadets to imbibe the good things that they would have observed over the last one month, during their stay in Delhi for the Republic Day celebrations, and also to spread these values, such as cleanliness and patriotism, when they go back to their towns and villages. He said the NCC is an institution which connects youth from across the country, and hence contributes towards a sense of unity in the nation.
The Prime Minister mentioned that this Republic Day marks the 125th birth anniversary celebrations of Babasaheb Ambedkar, the architect of the Constitution of India. He said that despite facing adversity throughout his life, Babasaheb Ambedkar was able to use the churning that this hardship would have caused within him, to produce the nectar of the Constitution, which helps us walk shoulder to shoulder, even after so many decades.
This is a special year. It is the year when we mark 125th birth anniversary of Dr. Ambedkar, who gave us our Constitution: PM @narendramodi— PMO India (@PMOIndia) January 28, 2016
In Dr. Ambedkar's life there were hurdles and challenges. But the feeling of revenge or ill-will was absent in him: PM @narendramodi— PMO India (@PMOIndia) January 28, 2016
All of you are here from every part of India. What is it that binds us? It is the Tricolour, Constitution & dreams of 125 crore Indians: PM— PMO India (@PMOIndia) January 28, 2016
The NCC provides you several experiences, which at your age are invaluable. There is also a spirit of adventure: PM @narendramodi— PMO India (@PMOIndia) January 28, 2016
