New Delhi: Delhi finance minister and deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia said, “Delhi government will start organizing "Deshbhakti Curriculum" and events exactly 75 weeks before the country’s 75th Independence Day, i.e; from March 12.
“We will train our children in such a manner that when they become government officials, they think twice before even jumping a red light or thinking about breaking the rules of the system. We will ensure that every child is proud of their country,” he said.
“We will make education a mass movement,” he added. While announcing the events to celebrate 75-years of India’s independence, Sisodia also quoted Bhagat Singh and recited couplets in the memory of the father of the Indian constitution, Dr. B R Ambedkar.
He proposed to install the national flag at 500 different locations across the national Capital. “At a distance of every 2-3 km, a flag will be installed in Delhi to celebrate the 75th Independence Day to instill the feeling of patriotism and nationalism in everyone. The government proposes ₹45 crores for this,” he said.
Sisodia also proposed a Sainik school and armed forces preparatory academy in the Capital in order to prepare Delhi’s children to serve the nation. “There are 33 Sainik schools across the nation. We will now have one in Delhi as well. We will also start an armed force preparatory academy where students will be prepared for NDA and armed force services,” he said.
For the elderly residents, the Delhi government has also proposed programmes for the elderly residents of Delhi and ₹2 crores has been allocated for it.
