It was heartening to note that Lok Sabha marks 75th year of Quit India movement in a very positive way. Prime Minister Narendra Modi made it very clear to end corruption, poverty and illiteracy in the next five years, setting the year 2011 as the target. The message is very clear as he vow to end poverty and graft in a very constructive way. It is not so easy to combat corruption in a country, where graft is part and parcel of the system. The challenge is well taken by the NDA government and this may prove a game changer for the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections. The spirit displayed during 1942 to 1947 should be reciprocated and the present government at the centre should work wonders in the period 2017 to 2022 and make our dreams come true in an effort to bring transparency and end poverty. Steps were initiated to end illiteracy in India and significant success has been achieved as in the case of electrification of villages since independence. Positive changes are expected from here on and we wish to see a new India in the years to come. India’s freedom from colonial rule was not only defining moment for the nation and we should draw inspiration from Quit India movement and make a move in achieving our goals in an inspired way.
