As the country prepares to commemorate its 77th Independence Day on Tuesday, the government will recognize Partition Horrors Remembrance Day.
The miseries of the division must be forgotten, according to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2021.

Gandhi found it incomprehensible that Jinnah, a “maniac” and “an evil genius,” could get his way while none of his followers rose up to oppose him.

, has stated he will speak with Pawar about clearing the air because any ambiguity will just give the impression that there is split within the MVA and might harm it electorally.
