Early Times Report
JAMMU, Sept 5: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) senior leader and Seh Prabhari Jammu North Vinay Gupta today said that India will reach near the Sun, just like it has reached the Moon. He made the statement at the campaign of the "Mitti Anthem" at the Meri Maati Mera Desh, the door-to-door campaign in Nanak Nagar of Gandhi Nagar Mandal in the Bahu assembly segment within District Jammu South. Vinay Gupta along with Gandhi Nagar Mandal President Bharat Bhushan, Ashok Kumar, Vice Presidents Surjeet Singh and Vinay Gupta, Rajesh Sharma, Rajesh Bahu, Arvind Sharma, Lovisha Gupta, Jasbir Singh, Aman Goswami, Daljit Singh, Vicky Sharma, Chand Bali in the presence of general public marked the start of the 'Amrit Kalash Yatra' as part of the 'Meri Mati-Mera Desh' campaign today.
While interacting with the residents of the area Vinay Gupta said, the 'Meri Maati Mera Desh' aims to symbolize the country's commitment to 'Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat' (One India, Great India) by collecting soil from all corners of the country in 750 urns. This soil will be used to create an 'Amrit Vatika' (Garden of Nectar) near Delhi's National War Memorial.
During his speech at the 'Meri Maati Mera Desh' event, Vinay Gupta emphasized the importance of the campaign, saying, "Whenever someone says 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai,' we refer to this 'mitti', this bhumi (ground)." Thousands of freedom fighters and citizens have given their lives for this day to come. For 90 long years, from 1857 to 1947, the country witnessed a freedom struggle, with many well-known and unknown people giving their lives to protect this'maati'." Gupta added that the 'Mitti Anthem' was officially launched during the event, underlining the importance of the soil that symbolizes the sacrifices made by countless individuals for the nation's freedom. "Through this event," he stated, "every person can contribute their part to the construction of a 'Mahaan Bharat' (Great India). From September 1 to September 30, 'mitti' or 'dhaan' (soil) will be collected and poured into a 'Kalash' (urn). This process will begin at the district or block level and gradually progress to the state capitals, ultimately culminating in the national capital, where it will be used to build a 'smarak' (memorial)."
During the 'Amrit Kalash Yatra' Vinay Gupta along with the general populace takes the pledge and highlights that the campaign will feature programs like the establishment of Shilaphalakams dedicated to freedom fighters and security forces, as well as initiatives like Panch Pran Pledge, Vasudha Vandan, Veeron ka Vandan which venerates the gallant sacrifices of our Bravehearts. Shilaphalakam or Memorial plaques saluting the spirit of sacrifice of local bravehearts from the village, panchayat, block, town, city, municipality, etc. are to be erected across urban and rural areas.
