The Pre independence period had vision building country a corruption free, giving the poor their rights, to develop cottage industry, self-employment for youth ending malnutrition , eradicating illiteracy and women empowerment, ironically none of the aims have been fulfilled as desired, so we request both union and state governments to take possible measures fulfilling freedom fighters visions, they appealed.
