Function held to mark his 77th death anniversary
DHARWAD: The 77th death anniversary of Bhagat Singh was held at Scouts Camp in Daddi Kamalapur near Dharwad on Sunday.
All India Democratic Youth Organisation (AIDYO) organised the programme as part of the State-level youth organisers’ camp.
Speaking on the occasion, the State convenor of All India Democratic Teachers’ Organisation (AIDTO), B. Bhagavan Reddy, said that Bhagat Singh was not just a revolutionary, who fought for the freedom of the country, but also a socialist visionary who believed that only a socialist revolution would solve the problems of the country.
He said some capitalists, who saw a threat in Bhagat Singh, helped the British in bringing an early end to his life.He criticised some organisations, which had acted against the ideals of Bhagat Singh, for organising programmes in his honour. Such organisations were trying to mislead the youth, he said.
He said that a socialist revolution would be a befitting tribute to Bhagat Singh.
The member of the State Secretariat of the All India Democratic Youth Organisation (AIDYO), Sharanappa Udbal, presided over the function.
Two Kannada plays, Gosumbe based on Anton Chekhov’s Chameleon and Nandigrama- Mugiyada Sangrama on the agitation against special economic zone (SEZ) in Nandigram, were staged by Yuvajana Samskrutika Vedike and Aavishkar Pragatipara Samskrutika Vedike, respectively, during the camp.
