PM Modi to release Rs. 100 commemorative coin in honor of Rajmata Vijaya Raje Scindia

The Ministry of Culture said in its statement that Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi will release a commemorative coin of Rs 100 in honor of Smt Vijaya Raj Scindia on 12th October 2020 through a virtual ceremony.

Vijaya Raje Scindia was a Jana Sangh leader and one of the founding members of the BJP. PM Narendra Modi also took to Twitter and shared the news stating, "Tomorrow, 12th October is the Jayanti of Rajmata Vijaya Raje Scindia. On this special day, a commemorative coin of Rs 100 would be released at 11 AM. This is a part of her birth centenary celebrations and is yet another occasion to pay tributes to her great personality."

Recalling the contents of the letter, the Prime Minister said she gave a key lesson that the "future generations should be able to draw inspiration as we make sacrifices while dealing with our current struggles".

Vijaya Raje Scindia was "a witness to India's key political events from independence struggle to decades after the country's independence", PM Modi said. "In the last 60 years, Rajmata Scindia was one of the key political figures who showed the direction. She was a decisive leader and an able administrator. From burning of foreign clothes before the independence to Ram Mandir Andolan, her experience had been vast," he stressed.

Smt Scindia is popularly known as the Rajmata of Gwalior and the coin will be released on the birth anniversary of Smt Scindia. The family members of Smt Scindia will join PM Modi through a video conference to attend this auspicious event.

"She proved that the service of public (Jan Satta) is more important than holding on to power (Raj Satta). She was a royal yet she spent important years of her life in prison. During Emergency, she wrote a letter to her daughters," PM Modi shared.
