Addressing the gathering, PM Modi said that there had been an attempt in the past to erase the contributions of many freedom fighters from history books. He said that this mistake is being rectified now. He named Bhimrao Ambedkar, Vallabhbhai Patel, and Birsa Munda among those being given due credit by the current government.


Remembering Bose's efforts to liberate India, PM Modi said that the freedom fighter had told the British that he did not want to beg for independence, but attain it.
