Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched Yaad Karo Kurbani (remember the sacrifices) celebrations at the birthplace of freedom fighter Chandra Shekhar Azad at Alirajpur, Madhya Pradesh. The Yaad Karo Kurbani is a 15-day programme aimed to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Quit India Movement (QIM) and 70 years of Independence. Later he also flagged off the Tiranga Yatra to mark the launch of the 70th Freedom Year celebrations with a theme song ’70 Saal Azadi Yaad Karo Kurbani’ which has been composed by Dr. Ghazal Srinivas.
The 70 Saal Azaadi, Yaad karo Qurbani campaign is to reach out to youngsters and inform them of the unsung heroes and the history of the freedom struggle and to develop a feeling in every person that nation is first and individual is secondary. While the ‘Quit India Movement’ is also known as Civil Disobedience or August Kranti movement. The mass movement was launched on 8th August 1942 at the Bombay session of All India Congress Committee (AICC). It launched after Mahatma Gandhi made a call to Do or Die in his Quit India speech delivered at the Gowalia Tank Maidan in Mumbai on 8th August 1942 after the Cripps Mission had failed.

1. Name the place where PM Modi has launched the Yaad Karo Kurbani celebrations?
