“Today is the birth anniversary of Netaji Subash Bose whose slogan “You give me blood, I will give you freedom” had inspired millions in the country during the freedom struggle. To honour the occasion, we have organised a blood donation camp. We may have achieved independence but on Netaji’s birthday, but the bigger question is – how much have we protected our freedom, what freedom means to each one of us and how much of it have we managed to secure in current times. We must ourselves – are we even eligible to honour and celebrate eminent personalities who fought for us? If today we are celebrating Netaji’s birthday, how much of his values and attributes have we honoured and inculcated in our definition of patriotism today. To celebrate Netaji, we must imbibe his fearless spirit. It is a source of immense pride for us that Odisha is Netaji’s birthplace and we must live upto it,” Patnaik said.
