Today, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh inaugurated the three-day ‘Rashtra Raksha Samarpan Parv’ in Jhansi, Uttarakhand. Recalling the historic significance of Jhansi, he paid his tribute and respect to Maharani Laxmibai and praised her courage, valor, and sacrifice. “When the princely states were kneeling one after the other in front of the British, Rani Laxmibai denied and said she will not give her Jhansi,” he added.

Praising the valor of Rani Laxmibai, he mentioned that she gave new dimensions to women’s power. Through her acts, she revived women’s power and awoke the feeling of having infinite power in women. He criticized and said that several people in our society who assume women to be weak should learn from the heroic deeds of Maharani Laxmibai, Anvati Bai, and Jhalkari Bai. At the same time, he also paid tribute to the great leaders of Indian history.

Remembering the Azad Hind Fauj of Subhash Chandra Bose, he mentioned that Netaji had also formed a Rani Laxmibai Regiment in 1942. “Netaji also believed that the freedom struggle is incomplete without the participation of half the population,” he added. Noting the participation of women in various fields these days, he appreciated the efforts undertaken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the upliftment of women.

He also remembered that when he was the Home Minister of India, he had proposed an advisory to all states to give women 33 percent representation in the security forces. “Now, we have increased the participation of women in all the three wings of the army. Girls are being given admission in Sainik Schools,” he said.

In the event, he recalled the policy of Gandhi, ‘Swadeshi’ or self-reliance. He highlighted the challenges faced by India, including cross-border terrorism, and cybercrimes. Singh congratulated CM Yogi Adityanath for the success of the UP Defense Corridor. Reportedly, the Hindustan Aeronautical Limited got an order of about 50,000 crores from Armed Forces. Previously 65-70 percent of materials were imported, but now things have changed and 65 percent of goods are manufactured in India.

Furthermore, noting the creativity of the youths, he mentioned that it will help India not only to achieve ‘Make In India’ goal but also ‘Make for the World’.
