Founder of Naman Amarpreet Singh Kale, said that in view of the spread of Corona a meeting the organisation was held and it was unanimously decided to postpone the event.
“We will organise Tiranga Yatra after the situation gets normal. However, we are using our team to educate people on ways to take preventive measures from the virus. We have printed several posters and pamphlets that will be distributed at 300 different points across the city. We will send our volunteers at different areas across the city and nearby villages educating people,” said Kale.
Addressing the media, Kale said that the idea behind Tiranga Yatra is to instill nationalism among the people of Jamshedpur. This was the reason a social cultural organisation, Naman-Shaheedon ke sapno- was formed. The organisation also felicitates soldiers and their family members for their contribution to national security during several wars. However, in view of the prevailing situation they have decided to postpone the event and organise the yatra when fear of the virus is over.
He reiterated that Tiranga Yatra will be organised in memory of freedom fighters Bhagat Singh along with Rajguru, Sukhdev Thapar who were hanged to death on grand scale only after some time.
“We want to make the legacy remain in the heart of Indians that keeps us all inspired forever. They were the ones who fought against British for freedom of India at very young age and their sacrifice was an important catalyst for India’s Independence. As a tribute a march will also be taken out in which students along with senior members of the society will participate,” said Kale.
He said that the according to the present situation they will rather use the team to go door to door and educate people on cleanliness so that they can remain save from the virus.
