A national car rally, “Sudarshan Bharat Parikrama”, was reported on Saturday from the Red Fort in New Delhi by Union Interior Minister Amit Shah as part of the “Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav” celebrations.

Twelve officers and 35 commandos of the National Security Guard participate in this car rally which will visit various places linked to the struggle for the freedom of India. They will visit 18 cities in 12 states and will travel nearly 7,500 km on the Golden Quadrangle.

Addressing the event, Amit Shah said, “There are a lot of freedom fighters that we don’t know, there are some stories that we don’t remember. Thanks to Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, all of these stories are celebrated across places to collectively invoke nationalist fervor in today’s generation.

Some places the car rally will visit in order to pay tribute to the freedom fighters include Kakori Memorial (Lucknow), Netaji Bhawan (Kolkata) and Sabarmati Ashram (Ahmedabad).

Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is an initiative of the Indian government to celebrate and commemorate the 75 years of Indian independence.
