PM Modi remembers freedom fighters on Quit India movement anniversary
The decisive campaign against British rule was launched this day in 1942 on Mahatma Gandhi's call at the Bombay session of the Congress on August 8 in his famous ''do or die'' speech.
An alarmed British government arrested the top leadership of the Congress but people embraced Gandhi's call.
''Remembering all those who took part in the Quit India Movement under Bapu's leadership and strengthened our freedom struggle,'' Modi tweeted, posting a clip of his earlier address in which he had spoken about it.
Modi also shared great socialist leader Jayaprakash Narayan's remark ''August 9 has become a burning symbol of our national revolution''.
