1 Million Likes In Less Than 24 Hours For PM Modi's

In the morning, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee attended the programme arranged by Netaji Research Bureau at Netaji Bhawan in South Kolkata.

"During the British-era, Kolkata was the capital of the country".

"I believe that India must have four rotating capitals". The English ruled the entire country from Kolkata.

The West Bengal Chief Minister also criticised the Centre for abolishing the Planning Commission, which, according to her, was conceptualised by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.

She also questioned why will the birth anniversary of Bose not be celebrated as "Deshnayak Diwas".

He went on to say that Netaji would be proud to see that his country had not only fought the COVID-19 pandemic and but also developed a vaccine and is helping other countries with the technology. "What is this "Parakram"?" questioned Banerjee.

Issuing a statement after Mamata's reaction at the Victoria Memorial event, her party said, "During government of India's event on Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose's 125th birth anniversary, "Jai Sree Ram" slogans were hurled".

The rally led by Banerjee was kicked off from Shyambazar after blowing conch shells at 12.15 pm - the time when Netaji was born on this day in 1897.

Facebook upgrades AAT system that generates photo descriptions for visually impaired users
Facebook's AAT can now say where exactly people are standing in a photo instead of just saying the number of people in the photo. When the user selects this option, a panel will come in which more information about the content of the photo will be found.

"When Netaji constituted the Indian National Army, he took everyone including people from Gujarat, Bengal, Tamil Nadu".

Paying glowing tributes to Bose, who marshalled all his resources as he engaged in a military and diplomatic offensive against the British rule during World War II, Modi asserted Netaji would have been proud of how India is protected from its enemies from "LoC to LAC".

She announced that a monument and a university would be dedicated to Netaji, another monument at Rajarhat to the erstwhile Azad Hind Fauj. We will show how it will be done. "You are building new parliament and buying new planes, but why no memorial for Netaji?" the Chief Minister asked. "Why should there be only one capital city in our country?" media quoted her as saying. She said that the BJP remembers him only when there are elections.

"The Centre has dissolved Netaji's planning commission".

"We do not celebrate Netaji" s birthday only in the years when elections are scheduled.

While addressing the gathering, the West Bengal CM pointed out that Bose did not get his due respect and asserted that the state will celebrate the event as "Desh Nayak Diwas".

He was also given a quick walkthrough of the museum, which houses the photographs of the Azad Hind Fauj and the table used by Netaji in Singapore.
