New Delhi: For the next 25 years, we have to focus on ‘Panchpraan’ (Five Promises), Prime Minister Modi said in his speech at Red Fort today on the occasion of India’s 76th Independence Day.
The first of the ‘Five Pranas’ is to carry on with the promise of a larger and developed India; The second is to wipe out all traces of slavery; The third is to be proud of our heritage; The fourth is to strengthen the unity among the 130 crore people and the fifth is that citizens including the Prime Minister and the Chief Minister should look at their duties, the Prime Minister said.
The Prime Minister further said, “India is an aspirational society where change is possible through collective power.” Indians want positive change and are eager to contribute to it. A direct government should understand the problems of this aspirational society.
India is the birthplace of democracy. In its 75-year journey, India has faced many challenges and proved that it has the capacity to meet them.
While starting the address, Prime Minister Modi said, I am the first post-independence person to address the nation from the Red Fort.
