The morning of August 9 marked the beginning of grand celebrations of the seventy fifth anniversary of the Quit India Movement. On the occasion, the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Raipur fraternity took oath and pledged its heart and soul for the betterment of India.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Director, faculty members, administrative staff and students of IIM Raipur gathered in a hall in their premises to pledge their allegiance to the Sankalp se Siddhi mission. Dr Bharat Bhasker, Director of IIM Raipur, made the students acknowledge their responsibility towards the nation. After which, he recited the pledge with the students and colleagues of IIM Raipur.

‘Sankalp Se Siddhi’ campaign has been launched across the country from August 9 to 30 to mark the 75th anniversary of Quit India movement. The idea behind the campaign is to sensitize the youngsters about the sacrifices of the martyrs and freedom fighters.

The pledge identifies corruption, poverty, illiteracy and malnutrition as the major challenges that are pulling back the Indian growth story.
