Country’s growth is becoming more inclusive and regional disparities too are reducing, Murmu added.
“Tomorrow marks the day when we freed ourselves from shackles of colonial rulers. We bow and celebrate those who made enormous sacrifices to make it possible for us to live in free India. World has seen new India rising in recent years, more so after outbreak of Covid,” she said.
Murmu said National Education Policy is aimed at preparing future generation for next stage of industrial revolution, reconnecting it with heritage.
