It is our goal to build a statue of Shahid-E-Azam Veer Bhagatsingh by collecting the Holy Soil from each State to use it in the making of the statue said Bidhurai during the Press Conference. It is not just the statue which showcases his great sacrifice but apart from that they will be reach out to the youth and give them the preaching of Independence and his sacrifices on the way across India.
Bidhurai also said, we should respect the Martyrs who lost their lives fighting for our country’s safety and Independence, be it the Army or the Paramilitary forces or the BSF jawans or the Police officers, all of them who ensure we are safe as citizens. It is because of them, that we live a safe, independent free life and can sleep in our homes peacefully.
Thus, it is our responsibility to ensure their families get enough support and children education and help once they are no more. After all we cannot forget the great service they have rendered to our nation and have laid down their lives in the line of duty, the President said.
It is also very important that the current generation, the youth, value their Independence and understand how it has been achieved. he added. He also appealed to the citizens to make this journey successful and render their support in the March.
We have demanded the government to make the salaries tax-free. To set up an independent commission for Martyrs and take care of their families and children once they are no more.we also feel that the Government should make a ‘Swabhiman Card’ for the martyr’s families which will ensure to give the services like education, health, employment immediately. We have also demanded to plan on increasing the employment opportunities for them after retirements.
