State Unity, Human Resource, Science, Technology and Innovation Committee chairman M. Asojan said the understanding of how the older generation had fought for Independence would inculcate awareness among the younger generation.
"Being Independent from colonisation is meaningful for the country as it gives us the opportunity to freedom. The younger generation should know about this.
"Without Independence, we will not be living the comfortable and harmonious life as we are now," he said at the launch of Jalur Gemilang campaign recently.
Ninety-three participants took part in the programme held in the northern zone of Johor. It was organised by Muar/Ledang /Segamat Unity Office and the Ledang Rukun Tetangga Coordinating Committee. Ledang district officer Amran Abd Rahman and district unity officer Azaharee Jamaludin were also present.
