From hoisting the Indian Flag in space within 4 years to introducing a scheme worth Rs 5 lakh to 50 crore Indians, here’s what PM Modi said today at the Red Fort!

The 72nd Independence Day is indeed a “Happy Independence Day” to all the Indians. Today is the day when the Prime Minster of India gifted something special to each and every Indian. From farmers to soldiers, from women to poor, from honest tax payers to daily wage workers, 1.31 billion Indians had something to cheer after listening to PM Modi’s Independence Day speech from the Red Fort.

My dear Indians, I’m restless….I’m restless..I’m restless because many nations are ahead of India, that’s why I’m restless to overtake them. I’m restless, excited and ferocious to free India from poverty and malnutrition. This nation will never stop and never get tired. Our nation will not just dream of future but one day will stand at the top of the “peak of future”.

“Housing for All, Power for All, Clean Cooking for All, Water for All, Connectivity for All, Sanitation for All, Skill for All, Health for All, Insurance for All” said the PM in a single breath.

The fierce speech of PM Modi on Independence Day filled with optimism and ensured to improve every Indian’s standard of leaving.

Now let us talk about the highlights of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech:

  • From 126, Left Wing Extremism is restricted to 90 districts. We are working to ensure peace across the nation!

While talking on the terror groups in India, this is how he slammed the left wing extremists and gave report card on how 36 Indian villages were brought out of the clutches of left wing extremists.

  • A surprise to Indians: Within 2022, India will unfurl the tricolour in space; By doing this, India will be the 4th country in the world!

Yes, Prime Minister Narendra Modi promised the Indians that India will astonish the world by achieving historic feat in space science. He said “India is proud of our scientists, who are excelling in their research and are at the forefront of innovation”. He added “in the year 2022 or if possible before, India will unfurl the tricolour in space”.

He also said in 2022, when we will celebrate 75th year of Independence we are dedicated to send the people of the country to space. “We will launch Gaganyan which will be made by Indian scientist then we will become the 4th country in the world to take people to space” he added.

  • Here comes the announcement on the most anticipated scheme: Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Abhiyaan

A poor who never to deprived of proper medical benefits and that’s what the PM wants, who himself came up from a poor background. Speaking on the schemes that will benefit nearly 50 crore Indians, he said “Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Abhiyaan will be launched on 25th September this year. It is high time we ensure that the poor of India get proper access to good quality and affordable healthcare.”

“Mahatma Gandhi led the Satyagrahis to freedom. Today, the Swachhagrahis have to ensure a Swachh Bharat. It is important to ensure that we free the poor of India from poverty due to which they cannot afford healthcare” he added.

  • While talking of farmers, the Congress went into shame, here’s why:

While talking about the schemes delivered to the farmers, the backbone of India, the Congress party had to hung their head in shame as the the PM on speaking on MSP said “the demand for higher MSP was pending for years. From farmers to political parties to agriculture experts, everybody was asking about it but nothing happened. With the blessings of the farmers, the decision on MSP was taken by our government”.

  • Big gift to women serving the nation. Here’s a big gift women soldiers:

Women officers commissioned in short service will get opportunity for permanent commission like their male counterparts, said the PM.

He also said “I am proud of the fact that three women judges in Supreme Court are delivering justice. Since independence, this is the first cabinet where so many women are a part of the cabinet”.

Development without corruption and nepotism:

Apart from speaking on “Vikas” ( development), PM Modi also slammed the dynasty and corrupts by saying “We will not forgive the corrupt and those who have black money. They have ruined the nation. Delhi’s streets are free from power brokers. From the voice of power brokers, the voice of the poor is heard”.

He added “In today’s India there is no place for nepotism. We have ensured environmental clearances are done transparently”.

Those who mocked the “Swachh Bharat mission” he slammed them by saying “Last month, WHO said 3 lakh kids were saved due to the cleanliness drive in India”.

Altogether it was a delight to watch PM Modi’s Independence Day speech as he promised of not disappointing the honest tax payers whose number has doubled from 4 crore to nearly 8 crore in just 4 years of BJP coming to power.
