Prime Minister Narendra Modi release a special commemorative coin on the occasion of Birth Centenary Celebrations of Rajmata Vijaya Raje Scindia. Through video conference on Monday, 12th October 2020 at 11.00 AM PM Modi released a special commemorative coin of Rs.100.
Through video conference Honorable PM Modi says Rajmata Vijayaraje Scindia was one of the personalities who gave direction to India in the last century. Rajatamaji was not the only Vatsalyamurthy. She was a decisive leader and also a skilled administrator.
Also, PM Modi says She was a witness to every important phase of Indian politics from the independence movement to the decades after independence. From the burning of Holi of foreign cloth before independence to the Emergency and the Ram Temple movement, Rajmata’s experiences have expanded widely. Many of us have had the privilege of connecting with him very closely, experiencing his service, his vatsalya.
We learn from the life of Rajmata Scindia that one does not have to be born in a big family to serve others. All that is needed is love for the nation and a democratic temperament. Rajmata had dedicated her present for the future of the nation. He had renounced all his happiness for the future generations of the country. Rajmata did not live for the position and prestige, nor did politics.
