PM Modi Opening Lines On Independence Day
(PM Modi): We’re going through bad times. I can not see young children in front of me today (at Red Fort). Corona has stopped everyone and change our lifestyle. In these times of COVID-19, Corona warriors have lived the mantra of ‘Seva Parmo Dharma‘ and served the people of India. I express my gratitude to Corona warriors.
This is a day to remember the sacrifices of our freedom fighters and also to show gratitude to Security personnel including that of Army, paramilitary and police who are ensuring our safety.
Amid Covid-19 pandemic, 130 crore Indians took the resolve to be self-reliant and ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’ is on the mind of India. This dream is turning into a pledge. Aatmanirbhar Bharat has become a ‘mantra’ for the 130 cr Indians today: PM Modi
I am confident that India will realise this dream. I am confident of the abilities, confidence and potential of my fellow Indians. Once we decide to do something, we do not rest until we achieve that goal: PM Narendra Modi from the ramparts of the Red Fort
A few months back we used to import N-95 masks, PPE kits and ventilators. Today India is not only meeting its own requirements but it has also stepped forward to help other countries: PM Modi
