Maharashtra Government launches Quit India Movement 2 against social evils
10 August 2016 Current Affairs GK: Maharashtra Government has launched Quit India 2 Swaraaj to Suraaj Movement against various social ills during commemoration of Platinum Jubilee anniversary of the Quit India Movement. It was launched by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis in the presence of Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu at the historic August Kranti Maidan in Mumbai, Maharashtra. On 8th August 1942, Mahatma Gandhi had given the clarion call of Quit India at the historic August Kranti Maidan (then called as Gowalia Tank Maidan), Bomabay (now Mumbai).

Quit India 2 Swaraaj to Suraaj Movement  : The awareness movement is an apparent attempt to link contemporary politics to pre-Independence history to rid itself of various social evils and convert ‘swaraj’ into ‘su-raj’. It would emphasize on freedom from social evils farmer suicide, illiteracy, wastage of water, malnutrition, addiction among youth and corruption in order to achieve faster all-inclusive progress on all fronts. 

Besides, state government will commemorate the leaders who fought for freedom and pledge for holistic development of the nation.

During his speech Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu asserted that providing education to all, creating employment, combining development with welfare measures are all part of the larger ‘Quit Poverty” campaign.
