Nation observes 77th anniversary of Quit India movement

FILE PIC: DD News
The 77th anniversary of the August Kranti Din, which is considered as one of the important milestones in the history of freedom struggle of our country, is being observed today. 

On this date in 1942, Mahatma Gandhi gave a clarion call to end the British rule and launched the Quit India Movement at the session of the All-India Congress Committee in Mumbai. 

After the failure of Cripps Mission, Gandhiji gave the call to Do or Die in his Quit India speech delivered at the Gowalia Tank Maidan in Mumbai. 

The grateful country is today paying homage to the freedom fighters and remembering the supreme sacrifices of the martyrs during the freedom struggle.

Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu has urged the people to take part in nation-building activities in a constructive manner. He said the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi are eternally relevant. 

He was addressing a gathering after well-known Gandhian, Dr. Shobana Radhakrishna rendered ‘Gandhi Katha’. It is a narrative on the clarion call given by Mahatma Gandhi to the British this day to Quit India. 

Minister of State for Culture and Tourism, Prahlad Singh Patel, was also present at the event held at the Vice President’s residence in New Delhi.
