About Madhya Pradesh congress
On 28 December, 1885, with a dream of independent and developed India, a group of 72 senior persons (which included social reformers, journalists, doctors, advocates and leaders) met at Gokuldas Tezpal Sanskrit Mahavidyalaya (Mumbai). They had no idea that later the Father of Nation Mahatma Gandhi, Pt. Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Shri Lala Lajpat Rai, Shri Vipin Chandra Pal, Pt. Motilal Nehru, Shri Chitranjan Das, Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel, Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar, Shri Rajgopalachari, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Smt Sarojini Naidu, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri, Smt. Indira Gandhi and Shri Rajiv Gandhi along with the people of this great country will take their dream forward and will use extra ordinary talent to make this country a developed one.
Congress party leaders had put very hard efforts for the Independence of this country by following the path of non violence and truth. In spite of harsh and cruel restrictions and attacks by British rulers, our leaders not only participated but successfully mobilized the countrymen via non co-operation, civil disobedience and various other historical movements.
Many leaders scarifies for the Independence of Country and following to their methodology the First Prime Minister of Independent India Late Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru put a milestone of development of modern India and former prime minister Late Shri Lal Bahadur Shashtri given "Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan" statement to put new energy to the people of nation.
The first Prime Minister of independent India, Late Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru laid the foundation of India’s development. Later, Late Prime Minister Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri energized the nation with his slogan, "Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan".
First woman Prime Minister of India, Late Smt. Indira Gandhi introduced Green Revolution and abolished Privy Purses. She initiated nationalization of banks and established premiere engineering college Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Khadagpur, thereby ushering the nation on the path of technical education and empowering the youth to utilize their talent. Thereafter, an epitome of young India and the youngest Prime Minister Late Shri Rajiv Gandhi introduced Information & Communication Technology which ultimately led us into the era of modern India. Despite all odds, it was a great achievement for the young and impatient India. Today, all the development and progress (e.g. successful Chandrayan and Mangalyan mission) we see are the results of long sightedness of our leaders.
