Prime Minister Narendra Modi honoured 21 recipients of the Param Vir Chakra by renaming 21 of the Andaman & Nicobar Islands’ largest nameless islands in honour of Parakram Diwas.
During the occasion, the model of the National Memorial honouring Netaji that will be erected on Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose Dweep was also unveiled by the Prime Minister through video conference.
In 2018, Mr. Modi changed the name of the Ross Islands, which are a part of the Andaman Islands, to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Dweep. He also changed the names of Neil Island and Havelock Island to Shaheed Dweep and Swaraj Dweep, respectively.
