"The path alighted by Shaheed Udham Singh would always be a guiding light for coming generations", said the National Students' Union of India's (NSUI) President Neera Kundan, adding that the relevance of the great martyr in India's freedom struggle was more pronounced in the present fight against the centre's fascist mindset.

On the occasion of the first 'Online Youth Parliament' organised by NSUI Punjab, Kundan, he was seen interacting with school children.

While paying tributes to the great martyr on his martyrdom day, he underlined the need for greater emphasis to disseminate knowledge about our martyrs and risks they undertook to ensure we breathe in free India.

The first of its kind event was attended by state president Akshay Sharma.

As a tribute to Shaheed Udham Singh, hundreds of students from across the country took part in the event via video conferencing and shared their thoughts and ideas about the Son of Soil.

Discussions on topical issues, including Legacy of our great martyrs—A message for Youth, Participation of Youth in Nation Building, National Education Policy, 2020, formed the nucleus of stimulating debates spread over three sessions.

"The specially crafted event to engage youngsters in the process of nation-building would be a regular feature and would be extended to include more schools and colleges from next year", Akshay Sharma disclosed.

Earlier, inaugurating the event, Punjab Cabinet Minister O P Soni exhorted youngsters to learn and follow from the great sacrifices our martyrs had to make to attain independence from British rule.

"We must do everything to sustain that freedom and liberty, which is under attack today", Soni added.
