The prime Minister of India Narendra Modi unfurled the National Flag amid a 21-gun salute by the indigenously developed howitzer gun, ATAGS. Earlier today, he visited Rajghat to pay his respects to the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi.
On the occasion of 75th Independence day, Modi urged the youth to dedicate the next 25 years of their lives for the development of the nation and highlighted 5 resolves to accomplish. At the historic Red Fort in Central Delhi, he said, “We have to work with the vision of accomplishing what our freedom fighters dreamt of. By 100 years of Independence, for the next 25 years we need to focus on the 5 resolves Viksit Bharat ( Developed India), Removing every ounce of Gulami (slavery) in us, Work on the pride for our glorious heritage, Ensuring Unity amongst all and Fulfilling our fundamental duties.”
He gave a long speech at Red Fort, saying, “When dreams are big, the hard work is equally strenuous. We need to be influenced by the sankalp and determination of our freedom fighters who dreamt of a free India. I urge the youth to dedicate the next 25 years of their lives for the development of the nation. We will work towards even the development of the entire humanity. That is the strength of India. Covid-19 has been an example of this common consciousness, where citizens came together. We have maintained unity from supporting doctors to propelling research to taking vaccines to the remote areas.”
He said where there is stability in governance, rapid decision making, spirit of Jan Bhagidari prevails for country’s development. We need to now move with a renewed focus and resolve for the next 25 years, as we celebrate 75 years and this can be made possible through the strength and determination of 130 crore Indians.
