As president of the NMML (Nehru Memorial Museum and Library) Society, PM Modi presided over its annual general meeting at his residence in New Delhi.
On Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi emphasized the importance of broadening the scope of research on modern Indian history to include individuals and institutions to raise awareness about the country’s history.
As president of the NMML (Nehru Memorial Museum and Library) Society, he presided over its annual general meeting at his residence in New Delhi. Union ministers Rajnath Singh, Nirmala Sitharaman, Anurag Thakur, G Kishan Reddy, Dharmendra Pradhan, and MoS V Muraleedharan were also present, according to sources.
According to a statement from the Ministry of Culture, following the 90-minute meeting, which was also attended by members of the NMML Society’s executive council, the Prime Minister emphasized the need for institutions in the country to record well-researched work for the benefit of present and future generations.
Modi expressed satisfaction with the design and content of Pradhanmantri Sangrahalaya, calling it “truly nation-centric, and not person-centric,” adding that it suffers from neither undue influence nor an unwarranted absence of any required facts, according to the ministry.
According to the statement, Modi stated that there was a need to make the museum popular among the youth by organizing competitions about its content in colleges and universities. The Prime Minister also advocated for more research on individuals who have contributed to nation-building.
Noting that the 200th birth anniversary of Arya Samaj founded Swami Dayanand Saraswati falls in 2024, Modi urged academic and cultural institutions across the country to create content about the social reformer’s contributions as well as the Arya Samaj, which will celebrate its 150th anniversary in 2025.
During the meeting, NMML Society executive council chairman Nripendra Misra discussed the Society’s current operations as well as its plans.
