Expressing Pride & Honour, Hon’ble PM Hands over Shri Shyamji Varma’s Reinstatement Certificate to Guj CM at Bhuj

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi today handed over reinstatement certificate of the great freedom fighter Shri Shyamji Krishna Varma to Gujarat Chief Minister Smt Anandiben Patel at an event organized at Air Force Station, Bhuj. This certificate was presented to PM Shri Modi during his UK visit last month.

This barrister degree-certificate had been given to Late Shri Varma, who was then disbarred from Britain’s leading law society-The Honourable Society of the Inner Temple, for advocating independence for India. Now, he has been posthumously reinstated to the Bar.

This certificate will now be kept in ‘Kranti Tirth’- Shyamji Krishna Varma Memorial Trust in Kutch where he was born. It was dedicated to the head of the trust, CM Smt Patel today during the event.

On the occasion, expressing gratitude to PM Shri Modi for making this reinstatement possible, CM Smt Patel said that it was him who had brought back Shri Shyamji Krishna Varma’s ashes back to India from Switzerland in 2003, 73 years after his demise. PM Shri Modi had gone to Geneva to bring back the urns as per Shri Varma’s last wishes.

PM Shri Modi said that it was a matter of pride and honour for him to bring back Shri Varma’s urns and now his reinstatement certificate. He expressed satisfaction that more and more people are visiting Kranti Tirth – the memorial celebrating Shri Varma’s life and contribution that was dedicated in the year 2010. Youth will get inspired by his life, courage and patriotism visiting this memorial, he added.

PM Shri Modi will be attending Conference of Director Generals of Police to be held in Dhordo, Kutch from December 18 to 20, 2015.
