The library of the Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay National Memorial will be revamped as the research centre which will be equipped with all modern facilities and will take the ideology of Pt Upadhyay to other countries. Currently, the memorial library lodges the ideologies of Swami Vivekanand, Mahatma Gandhi and other personalities. This research unit will also open its gates to international research students, on invitation, for further research.
To set up this research centre, a data bank of institutions already associated with Pt Upadhyay across the country has been set up so that all these establishments can be interlinked and their work is included in this singular bank. This collated data bank would form the base of the research material then.
Rajasthan Heritage Protection and Promotion Authority former chairperson Onkar Singh Lakhawat said that Deendayalji spent a major part of his life in Rajasthan. Hence came the idea for this memorial. A 15-feet tall statue of Deendayal Upadhyay made of Ashtadhatu has been installed in the memorial. Events related to his life, public meetings and meetings with senior members of society are also shown here.
