India to celebrate its 72nd Independence Day today

PM Modi I Day speech

They used to talk about policy paralysis, today they talk about reform, perform, transform. "By 2022, when India completes 75 years of Independence, India will send a son or daughter to the space with the national flag in hand". This scheme will start rolling from September 25th which was already announced.

The chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) confirmed the timeline and said the pilots and crew, often called vyomanauts - after vyom, the Sanskrit word for space - would spend at least seven days in space.

"The government health care initiatives will have a positive impact on 500 million Indians", Modi said, adding that it would cover the equivalent of the population of the 27 member European Union.

The ambitious Ayushman Bharat-National Health Protection Mission (AB-NHPM) aims to provide a coverage of Rs 5 lakh per family annually, benefiting more than 10 crore poor families. And an inclusive Constitution was drafted by Babasaheb Ambedkar to achieve this dream of a nation where there is justice for the poor, and equal opportunities for all to move forward. They got together for nation-building and they will keep at it.

He gave examples of the pace of development in various fields such as toilet construction, electricity reaching villages, LPG gas connections, house construction etc.


He also took the opportunity to say that at present there are three women judges in the Supreme Court-the highest ever in its history.

Saha said the farmers were eager to hear what the prime minister had to say in his last I-Day speech in the current term, hoping that he'd offer solutions to their problems.

Modi said, India has become a ray of hope for people believing that global warming is a threat and a cause of environmental concern and that the country is heading worldwide solar alliance.

Last year, the Prime Minister had chosen an off-white and yellow-red turban with a long trail.
