Union Minister of Information and Broadcasting (IB) Prakash Javadekar on Saturday inaugurated a photo-exhibition at the National Media Center in New Delhi and said it will educate the populace on the ethos of freedom struggle which will envision the path for the next 25 years.
The exhibition, set up by the Bureau of Outreach and Communication (BOC) is part of a massive awareness campaign by the IB Ministry to celebrate Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav.
