Every government formed after Independence has contributed to the heights it has achieved today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday and added that the country has a proud tradition of strengthening democracy in a democratic manner, barring one or two exceptions.
Modi said that every prime minister of the country has contributed immensely to the fulfilment of the goals of the constitutional democracy after inaugurating the Pradhanmantri Sangrahalaya' prime ministers' museum.
He said to remember them is to know about the journey of independent India.
Modi said every government formed after Independence has contributed to the country reaching the heights it has achieved today.
He said that the museum is a living symbol of the shared legacy of each government.
Most of our prime ministers have come from humble backgrounds, which is a matter of great pride for Indians.
The belief in the great traditions of Indian democracy is strengthened by coming from a very poor family, coming from a farmer's family and reaching the post of prime minister, according to Modi.
He said India is the mother of democracy and that it has been constantly changing with the passage of time.
In every generation, there has been a constant effort to make democracy more modern, empowered, he said.
Modi said that we have had a proud tradition of strengthening democracy in a democratic way and that we have an obligation to keep strengthening democracy with our efforts, barring one or two exceptions.
This museum is a great inspiration at a time when the country is celebrating 75 years of independence, and the country is celebrating 75 years of independence, Modi said.
He said that people coming here will get to know about their background and struggle and will be familiar with the contributions of former prime ministers of the country.
Since Independence, the museum has been a tribute to every prime minister in the country.
The museum tells the story of India after Independence through the lives and contributions of its prime ministers, the PMO said earlier.
Modi bought the first ticket of the museum before its inauguration, officials said.
The museum was guided by Modi's vision to honour the contributions of all prime ministers of India towards nation building and is a tribute to every prime minister of the country since Independence, regardless of their ideology or tenure in office, according to the PMO.
It is intended to inspire and inspire the younger generation about the leadership, vision and achievements of all our prime ministers.
