With this, the PM said that by naming the islands after Paramveer Chakra winners today, they will become places of inspiration for generations to come. There was a demand to make public the confidential documents related to Netaji, we did it.

People are now going to Andaman to know about our (freedom struggle) history. From Delhi and Bengal to Andaman-Nicobar Islands, the whole country is paying tribute to Netaji, saving the legacy associated with him.

Since independence, our army had to fight wars, everywhere our army showed its bravery. The country is being given a new identity in the name of army and jawans. Andaman is such a land where water, nature, environment, effort and inspiration are everything.

PM Modi said that the 21st century is a witness to the change that how Netaji, who was forgotten, is being remembered today every moment. He said that the works related to Subhas Chandra, which have been done in the last 8-9 years, should have been done in the years following India’s independence.
