Bhagat Singh 113th birth anniversary: PM Modi, Amit Shah and other leaders pay tribute

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday (September 27) paid tributes to freedom fighter Shaheed Bhagat Singh, calling him the symbol of bravery and courage. The tribute from the Prime Minister comes a day before the 113th birth anniversary of the freedom fighter.

Speaking at the 69th edition of the ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme, the Prime Minister recalled the life of Bhagat Singh.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday paid tributes to Shaheed Bhagat Singh on his 113th birth anniversary.

Taking to his official Twitter handle, Shah said that Bhagat Singh will always remain a source of inspiration for Indians. “I express my gratitude to Shaheed Bhagat Singh who gave new direction to freedom struggle through his revolutionary ideas and supreme sacrifice and awakened resolve of independence among youth of the country. He will always remain a source of inspiration for us,” Shah’s tweet read.

Bhagat Singh was born in Banga village of Faisalabad district (previously called Lyallpur) now in Pakistan’s Punjab province in 1907.

The revolutionary freedom fighter was a charismatic Indian socialist revolutionary whose two acts of dramatic violence against the British in India and execution at the age of 23 made him a folk hero of the Indian Independence movement.

Singh, who was hanged in the Lahore jail along with Shivaram Hari Rajguru and Sukhdev Thapar on March 23, 1931, left a strong impact during his lifetime.
