PM Narendra Modi’s Independence Day Speech at Red Fort: 10 Key highlights

PM Narendra Modi addressed the country from Red Fort in honor of the 70th anniversary of Independence, After unfurling the tricolour.

Here are the top highlights from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Independence day speech:

1. “I have tried to adopt the strategy of ‘Reform, Perform and Transform’; tried to avoid populism.”

2. “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.”

3. “A nation which is divided because of reasons like caste and religion cannot achieve great things”

4. “The way people of Balochistan, Gilgit and Pakistan Occupied Kashmir have thanked me, they have thanked the whole population of my country. I want to offer my gratitude to these people.”

5. “It’s easy to keep account of the work done by the government, but it is difficult to have in-depth knowledge of those initiatives. Today, more than ‘Karya’, I want to talk about ‘Karya Sanskriti’ of the government.”

6. “We have brought inflation rate below 6 per cent; I will continue to work to ensure food plate of poor is not affected by inflation.”

7. “Our social unity is most important; division in the name of caste, creed hurts the country. Need to rise above all these issues.”

8. “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.”

9. “People are scared of income tax authorities, particularly middle class families. We have to change this situation, and I will change it. Earlier, getting a passport used to take months, today it takes just a couple of weeks. Transparency is very important to ‘Surajya.”

10. “There was a time when the government was surrounded by allegations, but now the government is surrounded by expectations.”
