NAF has four action points for everyone:
As the nation comes together to celebrate Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th Birth Anniversary year, I-PAC aims to resurrect the conversation around one of his most important pieces of work – an 18-point Constructive Programme for Poorna Swaraj. Written over a period of time and last shared by Mahatma Gandhi in 1945, this 18-point Constructive Programme outlined the key priorities for independent India.
Gandhiji had said, “My list does not pretend to be exhaustive; it is merely illustrative”. He mentioned that the readers will see several new and important additions and encouraged them to add what in their opinion should be part of the key priorities of India.
