Narendra Modi, Prime Minister :
I bow to the great Lokmanya Tilak on his Jayanti.
His thoughts and principles are more relevant than ever before in the present circumstances, when 130 crore Indians have decided to build an Aatmanirbhar Bharat that is economically prosperous and socially progressive.
Lokmanya Tilak was a firm believer in Indian values and ethos. His views on subjects such as education and women empowerment continue to motivate several people.
He was an institution builder, nurturing many top-quality institutions which have done pioneering work over the years.
