The National Flag was hoisted by Suhail Kazmi, member, Waqf Board J&K, along with Sqn. Ldr. R S Chib, Former Minister and other dignitaries.
This was followed by National Anthem and patriotic songs sung by the students of that area. Kazmi while addressing the large gathering greeted the people on this historical day and remembered, all those leaders, who sacrificed their lives for achieving the Independence. He said it is the duty of all of us to remember our patriots on this day and work for the unity and integrity of our great country.
While thanking the organizers, for organizing this function in the border area of Suchetgarh Kazmi said that the people living in rural areas and especially along the Indo-Pak Border are the real contributors of nation building and universal brotherhood. "We have all assembled here to spread the real essence of India, through this celebration, on the occasion of the Independence Day of India. We all have a role to maintain the dignity of our Flag with great honour and that will glorify the beauty of our Nation. I salute the people living across India especially in the difficult situations of borders like this."
R S Chib, who presided over the function, extended his greetings to all countrymen and the people of Border area of Suchetgarh in particular. Chib said that it is our duty to remember all those, who sacrificed their lives in attaining the Independence for India. He said it is our right and a matter of pride to host the tricolour, on this day of Independence.
Chib, expressed hope that J&K UT will be granted statehood at the earliest and the elections will be held soon.
He made special reference about the refugees, who migrated from POK during 1947, 1965 & 1971, and are residing along the Indo-Pak border. He said that the GoI should consider their representation in the assembly out of the seats reserved for the people of POK.
The development along the International Border is far from satisfactory, said Chib.
