India celebrates freedom day;PM Modi urges to create ‘New India’

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged the people to create a New India on the occasion of India’s celebration of its 70 years of freedom.
There is no big or small in our country.”Everyone is equal.Together we can bring a positive change in the nation.”-the PM said in his independence day address.

The Prime Minister said India stands for peace, unity, and harmony. He said casteism and communalism will not help us. He strongly condemned the use of violence in the name of faith, and said this will not be accepted in India. He said the call of the Quit India Movement was “Bharat Chhodo,” but the call today is “Bharat Jodo.”

He called for a New India where the poor would have houses, and access to water and electricity; where farmers would be free from worry, and would earn twice of what they earn today; youth and women would get ample opportunities to fulfil their dreams; an India free from terrorism, communalism, casteism, corruption and nepotism; and an India which is clean and healthy.
