PM Modi pays tribute to Birsa Munda on birth anniversary at parliament house

Birsa Munda

On the birth anniversary of Birsa Munda, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman Harivansh Narayan Singh, and other leaders paid tribute to the tribal freedom fighter at the Parliament premises on Monday.

Earlier on Monday, PM Modi inaugurated Bhagwan Birsa Munda Smriti Udyan cum Freedom Fighters Museum in Ranchi via video conferencing. Addressing the event, the Prime Minister said, “Dharti Aba (Birsa Munda) wrote a complete history for the country in a short span of life, and his struggle gave inspiration and direction to the generations of India. Lord Birsa lived for society, sacrificed his life for his culture and the country.
Therefore, he remains in our faith and soul as our God.” Prime Minister Modi recalled Birsa Munda’s contribution as giving a sharp edge to the freedom movement and protecting the interests of the tribal society. “Lord Birsa knew that attacking diversity in the name of modernity and tampering with ancient identity and nature was not the way to the welfare of society. He favoured modern education, advocated for changes, and showed courage to speak against the evils and shortcomings of his society.

The fight of ‘Dharti Aba’ was against the thinking which wanted to erase the identity of the tribal society of India,” he stated. The birth anniversary of Birsa Munda, the iconic tribal leader who led a rebellion against the British, is being celebrated as Janjatiya Gaurav Diwas. “In this Amrit Kaal of Independence, the country has decided that it will confer a more grand identity to its tribal traditions and valour stories.

In this sequence, a historic decision has been taken that from today every year the country will celebrate November 15 that is the birthday of Birsa Munda as ‘Janjatiya Gaurav Diwas’,” Prime Minister added. Birsa Munda, who belonged to the Munda tribe, was born on November 15 in 1875.

During the British rule in the late 19th century, he spearheaded an Indian tribal religious Millenarian movement across the tribal belt of modern-day Bihar and Jharkhand. His birth anniversary is celebrated as Birsa Munda Jayanti in the country and coincides with the Jharkhand Foundation Day.

Trai mandates telcos to provide pre-paid mobile recharge plans with 30-day validity

On Thursday, regulators Trai said that telecom operators would have to provide recharge plans with a validity of 30 days for pre-paid customers.

The step is expected to reduce the number of recharges done by a customer during a year.

Currently, telecom operators provide recharge plans with a validity of 28 days, leading to thirteen recharges during the year for customers who look for monthly recharge.

“Every telecom service provider shall offer at least one plan voucher, one special tariff voucher and one combo voucher having a validity of thirty days,” Trai said in a notification.

The notification mandates mobile phone service providers to provide one plan voucher, one special tariff voucher and one combo voucher, which shall be renewable on the same day of every month.

Further, telecom companies have been ordered to comply with the order within 60 days from the day of notification of the rules.
