President inaugurates military station in Bengal 

Baharampur (West Bengal), Oct 9 (IANS) President Pranab Mukherjee on Saturday inaugurated a new military station in Murshidabad district in West Bengal.

Mukherjee, who had also laid the foundation stone of the Berhampore Military Station in 2014, said that the station has great importance because it is the only such station between Siliguri (in north Bengal) and Kolkata which is very near to Bangladesh border.

In his address, he also appreciated the sacrifices of Indian soldiers and said that they have shown exemplary courage in every battlefield. He saluted the brave hearts whose sacrifices are unparalleled.

Mukherjee, who is on a five-day visit to West Bengal, also inaugurated the Kamoda Kinkar Mukhopadhyay Sarani, a street named after his freedom fighter father, at Suri in neighbouring Birbhum district. He also launched the silver jubilee celebrations of Dishari Club.

He said Mukhopadhyay was among the freedom fighters who fought relentlessly to free the country from British despotism.

He said that during the freedom struggle, several renowned patriots followed Mahatma Gandhiji’s principle of non-violence and there were many others who followed the stream of revolution and there was another stream too which posed organised threat to British imperialism and they were the tribals. Birbhum is one of the districts from where the Santhals rose up to fight the British hegemony.

The president lauded the ‘Clean India’ initiative of the Narendra Modi government and said that the entire country and all its villages and cities should be kept clean and pollution-free.

He said everybody should come forward and work unitedly under this initiative.
