VIJAYPUR, Feb 26: Bharatiya Janata Party Vijaypur on Wednesday paid tribute to Veer Savarkar on his the 54th death anniversary.
During the tribute, senior BJP leader Chandar Prakash Ganga, BJP officials and workers paid floral tributes to the statue of Veer Savarkar. Addressing the masses, former minister Ganga said that with the wreath, it has been resolved to follow the principles of Veer Savarkar. He told that Veer Savarkar was the leading line constellation of the makers of modern India.
He was the first student in India who was expelled from the college on charges of patriotism, Ganga said. He added that Veer Savarkar was not only a freedom fighter, but was also a great personality, writer, poet, brilliant orator and a politician rich in visionary personality. He said that Vinayak Damodar Savarkar had devoted his entire life to the service of Mother India. He was the first Indian to name the so-called mutiny of 1857 in London as the Indian freedom struggle.
Ganga said, 'Fearing the revolutionary ideas of Veer Savarkar Ji, the British not only punished him for black water but also sentenced him to two life imprisonment.
"Savarkar became the only freedom fighter to receive such punishment. He became a strong voice against untouchability and the interests of Dalit society. Greetings to such an excellent nationalist. Veer Savarkar is an idea, not just a person. His contribution to the independence of India can never be forgotten", Ganga said.
