PM Modi’s Visit To Bhimavaram 


PM Modi will kick off the year-long commemoration on the 125th anniversary of the great freedom warrior Alluri Sitaram Raju’s birth and will also unveil a 30-foot-tall bronze statue of the tribal chief. Raju, who was born on July 4, 1897, is famous for his battle with the British to defend the rights of the indigenous inhabitants in the Eastern Ghats.

Raju was the leader of the 1922 Rampa Rebellion, which the locals referred to as “Manyam Veerudu.”

In order to commemorate the occasion for an entire year, the government has prepared a series of initiatives. The statement claimed that Raju’s birthplace at Pandrangi in the Vizianagaram district and the police station would be restored to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Chintapalli Police Station attack, which served as the rebellion’s catalyst.

PM Modi To Gandhinagar 

After visiting Bhimavaram, Prime Minister Modi will travel to Gujarat, where he will start the Digital India Week 2022 in Gandhinagar. Catalyzing New India’s Techade is the topic of this year’s Digital India Week.

The Prime Minister will introduce a number of digital initiatives during the programme with the goal of increasing technology accessible, improving service delivery to promote comfort of living, and supporting startups.

The PMO announced that Prime Minister Modi will also introduce “Digital India Bhashini,” which will make it simple to use the internet and digital services in Indian languages, including voice-based access, and support the production of content in those languages.

A national deep-tech startup platform called “Digital India GENESIS” (Gen-next Support for Innovative Startups) will also be unveiled by the PM. The plan is expected to cost a total of Rs 750 crore, according to the release.
