Independence Day 2023: Centre has invited these ‘ 1,800 special guests’ at Red Fort

The organizers have invited sarpanches of Vibrant Villages and farmers, along with their spouses, as special guests to witness the Prime Minister’s address to the nation.

The organizers have invited 1,800 people from various walks of life, including nurses and fishermen, as special guests for the 2023 Independence Day celebrations at the Red Fort.

Invitees include sarpanches of Vibrant Villages, teachers, nurses, farmers, shram yogis who helped build the Central Vista Project in New Delhi, khadi sector workers, national award-winning school teachers, Border Roads Organisation workers and those helping in flagship programmes such as Amrit Sarovar and Har Ghar Jal Yojana projects.

The hosts have invited the guests, along with their spouses, to witness Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s address to the nation from the Red Fort. The initiative is part of the celebrations by the Centre in line with its vision of ‘Jan Bhagidari’. Beneficiaries of Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Scheme (PM-KISAN) are also among the special guests.

For Ashok Sudam Ghule, a 54-year-old sugarcane farmer from Dhekalwadi village in Pune’s Baramati tehsil, this is a dream come true moment. Ghule is a beneficiary of the PM-KISAN scheme.

Rice farmer from Thane distict, Vijay Gotiram Thakare, is grateful that he has got an opportunity to travel to the national capital as a special guest to witness the Independence Day celebrations.

The central scheme, PM-KISAN, aims at providing financial assistance to all cultivable land holding farmer families across the country, subject to certain exclusion criteria.

Around 50 people who are part of the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Scheme (PM-KISAN) and their families, are among roughly 1,800 individuals who have received invitations to attend PM Modi’s speech on Independence Day, a government release from the agriculture ministry said.

The state of Maharashtra has selected two beneficiaries of the scheme to witness the Independence Day festivities at the historic Red Fort.

Ashok Sudam Ghule, 54, farmer from Pune district, said, “I never imagined I’d get the chance to visit New Delhi’s Red Fort. Experiencing Independence Day feels like fulfilling a dream.” Ghule, who benefits from the PM-KISAN scheme, is a sugarcane farmer with a 1.5-acre piece of land.

The PM-KISAN scheme is a programme by the Central Government. Its purpose is to provide financial help to farmer families across the country who own cultivable land, with some exceptions. This initiative provides farmers with an annual amount of ₹6,000, distributed in three equal parts of ₹2,000 each, directly deposited into their Aadhaar-linked bank accounts.
