PM Modi has delivered speech on 74th independece day, he started with the shoulders stating that “India’s soldiers had given a fitting reply to those who challenged the country’s sovereignty from LoC to LAC”.
“From LoC (Line of Control) to LAC (Line of Actual Control), whenever India has been challenged, our soldiers have given a fitting response in a language they understand,” said the Prime Minister, in a strong message to both Pakistan and China. Referring to the clash with China in June at Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh, in which 20 soldiers died for the country, PM Modi said: “What our jawans can do, what the country can do, the world has seen in Ladakh. Today, I salute all those brave soldiers from the Red Fort.”
Whether it is terrorism or expansionism, India is fighting both, the Prime Minister said. “Today the world stands with India and to get 184 votes out of 192 nations in the UN for a (non-permanent) seat at the UN Security Council is proof,” he said. In the one-hour 26-minute speech, he focused on the themes of “Aatma Nirbhar Bharat (self-reliant India)”, “Vocal for local” and “Make in India to Make for World”. He also paid tribute to those warriors on the front lines of the fight against the Covid19. He also said about India’s road map about Coronavirus Vaccine.
