PM Modi’s Independence Day speech summary
Addressing the nation on the 69th Independence Day from the Red Fort in New Delhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said it was no “ordinary morning” for the world’s largest democracy and stressed on how Team India will take the country to new heights.
Here is a summary on all PM Modi said:
No Ordinary Morning
This is no ordinary morning. This is a morning of hope of the dreams and aspirations of 125 crore Indians.
This morning is about the dreams of 1.25 billion people. It is a morning of resolution of the people.
- This is Team India, a team of 125 crore Indians. This is the team that makes the nation and takes our nation to new heights.
- Poison of casteism and passion of communalism have no place in India, we have to defeat these through development.
- If the unity of India is destroyed, then the dreams of the people will also be destroyed.
Jan Dhan Yojana
- The doors of the banks were not open for the poor. We decided this must end. We wanted to strengthen financial inclusion.
- After all who are the banks for? They are for the poor.
- I have seen the richness of India’s poor. They deposited Rs 20,000 crore in Jan Dhan accounts.
- Almost 4.25 lakh toilets were built in 2.62 schools nationwide in one year; this gives self-confidence that we can do what we want.
- Dignity of labour has to be our national duty, it has to be a part of our nature.
- India can be free of corruption; need lots of measures; have to start from top.
- Corruption is eating away at India like a termite.
- CBI registered 1800 cases within 10 months of our coming to power.
- 20 lakh people have given up LPG subsidy voluntarily.
- All governments make programmes but what matters is implementation.
- We formed SIT on black money in the first week of forming the government.
- G20 Summit adopted a resolution on black money on India’s insistence.
- We have entered into agreements and treaties with other nations on real-time information on black money.
- Around Rs 3 lakh crore will come into the government exchequer from the auction of coal blocks.
- My talk about coal auctions should not be seen through the political prism.
- The Comptroller and Auditor General report on coal allocations during the previous UPA government had pointed to loss of Rs 1,76,000 crore.
- Ask yourself. Has corruption gone or not? Did the doors of corruption in the country close or not. We have done it.
Stand Up India, Start Up India
- We are looking at systems for enabling start-ups. We must be Number 1 in start-ups. ‘Start-up India’ and ‘Stand up India’
- In-principle this government has accepted ‘One-rank, One-pension’. We will have good news on the basis of talks are going.
- I expect a positive outcome from the OROP talks.
