As the tricolour unfurled at the Red Fort, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation on its 70th Independence Day.
In his speech, he gave intense weightage to his visions of “Make In India”, when he said, “The onus is on the 125 crore people of India to convert this ‘Swaraj’ into ‘Surajya’. From Parliament to panchayats, gram pradhans to the prime minister, everyone has to fulfill their responsibilites. Only then will the dream of surajya come true.”
He also included his recent actions in the context of Balochistan and POK, as he said that, “People of Balochistan, Gilgit and PoK have thanked me a lot in past few days, I am grateful to them.”
As Modi’s oratory skills were high on play, he also said that, “We all have to fight against social evils, have to support social justice. Great leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Ambedkar ji have always stressed on the need for social unity.”
Declaring his governance as supreme to the previous governments he said, “There was a time when the government was surrounded by allegations, but now the government is surrounded by expectations.”
