The inauguration of the memorial plaque was conducted by dignitaries, including former minister Antar Singh Arya, municipal president Basanti Bai Yadav, SDM Abhishek Saraf, vice-president Mohan Joshi and Rahul Pawar.
The Shilaphalakam bears the names of 20 freedom fighters from Sendhwa who valiantly contributed to the nation's fight for liberty. Prime Minister Narendra Modi's inspiring message graces the plaque, underscoring the unity and pride that comes from honouring the nation's history.
