The 21 islands that make up the Union Territory of Andaman and Nicobar Islands will now be referred to as Param Vir Chakra recipients. PM Modi gave the Parakram Divas its official opening. PM Modi has given these islands of Andaman and Nicobar a new name; they were previously unidentified. The government had declared January 23 to be Parakram Diwas the year before to commemorate Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose's birth anniversary.
In addition, a replica of the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose national memorial that will be constructed on the island will be unveiled by PM Modi, according to a release. PM Modi noted that today is Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose's birth anniversary during his speech on this occasion. This day of inspiration is known as Parakram Divas throughout the nation. On this day of bravery, I wish everyone in my country the utmost best.
The islands which have been named after 21 Param Vir Chakra awardees include Major Somnath Sharma, Subedar and Honorary Captain N Karam Singh, Khode II Lt. Rama Raghoba Rane, Naik Jadunath Singh, Havl. Major Piru Singh, Capt. GS Salaria, Lt. Col. Dhan Singh Thapa, Subedar Joginder Singh, Major Shaitan Singh, Abdul Hameed, Lt. Ardeshir Burjorji Tarapur, Lance Naik Albert Ekka, Major Hoshiar Singh, Responsive Senior Arun Khetpal, Flying Officer Nirmaljit Singh Sekhon, Mahan Ramaswamy Parameswaran, Naib Subedar Bana Singh, Captain Vikram Batra, Lieutenant Manoj Pandey, Subedar Major Sanjay Kumar and Subedar Major Super Grenadier Yogendra Singh Yadav.
In his speech, PM Modi explained the key justification for picking the islands. He said that the tricolour was raised for the first time in the country in the Andaman Islands. He said that Andaman itself hosted the formation of the first independent Indian government. On the Andaman Islands, Veer Savarkar and many more heroes gave their lives in service to their nation. He claimed that despite efforts to hide Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose's role in the independence movement, the entire nation is commemorating him now.
