Central Vista Inauguration: As part of the ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ to celebrate the 75th independence day, a new Central Vista was constructed and the name of Rajpath was changed to Kartavya Marg. It is being seen as an attempt to eradicate another symbol of slavery.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi took the ‘Panch Pran’ from the ramparts of the Red Fort on August 15, in which the complete abandonment of the slavery mentality is the second vow. During the last eight years, traces of slavery were eradicated from wherever this government looked.
Statue of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose installed
A statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose has now been installed at the site of King George V’s statue at India Gate, which will be unveiled by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday. The flag of the Indian Navy used to bear the Saint George’s Cross, but now the stamp of the Hindu emperor Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj has been put in its place.
PM Modi will inaugurate the Kartavya Marg
Race Course Road was renamed as Lok Kalyan Marg. The Prime Minister’s residence is located on this road. On September 8, 2022, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the Kartavya Marg.
Names for streets
In the year 2015, Aurangzeb Road was renamed as Abdul Kalam Road after the distinguished former president. Dalhousie Road was renamed as Dara Shikoh Road in the year 2017, whereas in the year 2018, Teen Murti Chowk was renamed as Teen Murti Haifa Chowk.
Kartavya Marg from September 8
Earlier, when New Delhi was contructed by the British Raj, this road was named ‘Kingsway’ in honor of King George V of England. The name was later translated into Hindi and made Rajpath after independence.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi completely changed this mark of slavery and changed both the name and form. It took some 20 months to change the image of the Central Vista, which will be known by duty from September 8.
1500 laws were repealed
The central government led by PM Modi canceled 1500 laws passed during the slavery period of the British era. In the year 2014, as soon as the Center took over, such laws were repealed one by one.
