Sardar Patel Memorial Lecture 2016 delivered by Dr Jitendra Singh, Hon'ble MOS DNER,PMO, DOPT, DAE..



All India Radio's Sardar Patel Memorial Lecture 2016 culminated successfully at the National Media Centre, today. Dr Jitendra Singh, Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North-Eastern Region; Minister of State in the Prime Minister's Office, Minister of State of Personnel Public Grievance and Pensions and Department of Atomic Energy and Space, delivered lecture on "Cooperative Federalism: Reconciling Regional & National Cohesion". This lecture will be broadcast on the National Hook Up, Rajdhani Channel (450.5 Mtrs MW 1666 kHz) & AIR FM Rainbow (102.6 MHz) and AIR FM Gold (106.4 MHz) channels on 31st October 2016. This lecture will also be available through live streaming of AIR FM Rainbow & AIR FM Gold through allindiaradio.gov.in or by downloading All India Radio Live Mobile App for Android, iOs and Window platforms.

This lecture is a legacy which has been a continual process since 1955 and many eminent personalities have shared their thoughts based on the ideologies of the Iron Man, as Patel was fondly called and remembered. He was also the man who consolidated fragmented states of India and built one United Modern India. Sardar Patel was the first Information and Broadcasting Minister of independent India and this lecture series held every year is a tribute to the great visionary by All India Radio. Today, Union Minister Dr. Jitendra Singh reflecting Patel's ideologies opened his speech with “The objective is to ensure that the Nation/ Republic and the respective States should share power without power getting concentrated at any level".

Chief Guest MoS Rajyavardhan Rathore said "Enthusiasm, patriotism of the young India promises more Sardar in the coming times"Today, through this lecture Dr. Singh brought the importance of Co-operative Federalism and how it is an integral part for the development and progress of a country. While discussing the nature and demand of time in 1950, he shared that framers of the Constitution refrained from using the term ‘Federation’ as it might have impeded the objective of unity and integrity of India, thus partition of the country probably called for a centralized federal union. So, adopting this type of structure was out of necessity, rather than choice. He further emphasised how present Government under the able leadership of Shri Narendra Modi is adopting and following the same principal. 

He even said that, “Indeed, Co-operative Federalism and introduction of GST will go down in history as the path breaking initiatives of the Modi Government.”Today’s lecture was in sync with the ideologies of Sardar Patel and his theories of united India. 

To hear the complete lecture, one can tune in to All India Radio on the above mentioned dates and time.
