Ara (Bihar): Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday said the Narendra Modi government was taking care of all sections of the society, particularly the poor, farmers, and also the oppressed and deprived sections of the society. While addressing a function organised to mark Vijayotsav (victory celebrations) of Veer Kunwar Singh – the great warrior of the 1857 revolution, who had removed the British flag and hoisted the Indian flag on April 23, 1858, in Jagdishpur under Bhojpur district of Bihar – Shah said Kunwar Singh’s valour was unparalleled in Indian history. Kunwar Singh had given the first warning to the British that Indians were no more ready to tolerate them and they (British) would have to quit the country. The Home Minister said people were well aware of the contribution of the great warrior and new generations should take inspiration from his sacrifice. It was not easy and hard to believe that Veer Kunwar Singh at the age of 80 years, had the strength and courage to take on the strong British Army and defeat them, he added. Shah said Kunwar Singh was also committed to taking care of all sections of the society including the poor and oppressed. His life was full of examples that indicated how far the great warrior was committed to giving respect to all sections of the society, he pointed out. The Home Minister said the Narendra Modi government was also following the principle of social justice pursued by Veer Kunwar Singh and had launched a number of schemes for the poor, farmers, the oppressed and the deprived. Two free dosages of vaccine shots were also given to 130 Crore people insulating them from infections of Coronavirus, he added. Shah said 60 crors poor people were given free ration at an average of 5 Kg per person per month for two years during the Corona pandemic. Similarly, the poor had been given insurance cover of Rs 5 lakhs for treatment of various ailments across the country under Pradhan Mantri Ayushman Bharat Yojna, he added. More UNI KKS SSP.
