PM Modi pays tribute to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj on his birth anniversary
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday paid tribute to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj on his 391st birth anniversary.
PM Modi said that his bravery and emphasis on good governance is an inspiration for all. "I salute Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj on his birth anniversary. His bravery and emphasis on good governance are an inspiration to us," tweeted PM Modi.
Shivaji Maharaj was born on February 19, 1630, at Shivneri Fort in Pune. The renowned Maratha ruler Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj's birthday is commemorated during the festival of Jayanti. The day's major objective is to honour the great warrior's contribution to the restoration of the Maratha Empire and to recognize his extensive legacy.
In 1674, he laid the foundation of the Maratha Empire in western India after fighting fiercely with the Mughals in 1670.
In addition to creating a well-organized administrative system, Shivaji Maharaj established a broad civil code for the local populace.
Notably, Jyotirao Govindrao Phule, popularly known as Mahatma Jyotiba Phule, established the Shiv Jayanti celebration in 1870, and since then, people have been celebrating the day with great fervour. (ANI)
