My dear compatriots,
On this solemn day of independence, there are many congratulations to all fellow countrymen.
Today is also the Raksha Bandhan festival. I extend my best wishes to all compatriots and all brothers and sisters on this auspicious Rakshabandhan festival. May this holiday filled with love fulfil the hopes, aspirations and dreams of all our brothers and sisters and bring love into their lives.
Today, as the country celebrates its independence holiday, people in some parts of the country face hardships due to floods and heavy rains. Many have lost their loved ones. I express my condolences to them. State governments, the central government and other organizations such as the NDRF are working day and night to ease the difficulties and bring the situation under control.
The country gained independence under the leadership of Bapu. Likewise, in the years since independence, many people have contributed to the peace, prosperity and security of the country. Today I also salute the people who have contributed to the realization of the hopes and aspirations of the people for the development, peace and prosperity of an independent India.
After the formation of the new government, I am again pleased to have the opportunity to speak with you. Even 10 weeks have passed since the formation of this new government. But even in a short ten-week period, efforts were made in all areas and new dimensions were added in all directions. People have entrusted us to serve them so that they can fulfil their hopes, expectations and aspirations. We are dedicated to your cause with complete dedication, not wasting a minute.
The repeal of Articles 370 and 35A within 10 weeks is a significant step towards the realization of Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel’s dream.
In just ten weeks, we made important decisions, such as passing a law against Triple Talaq to protect the rights of our Muslim women, making significant amendments to laws to combat terrorism and increase its rigidity and strength; transfer of about Rs 90,000 crores to the bank accounts of farmers who are beneficiaries of Prime Minister Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana.
Our brothers and sisters from the farming community, our small entrepreneurs have never believed that they would ever be able to benefit from retirement schemes and live a decent life, even after they turn 60 when they are physically weak and need some support. We have implemented a pension scheme to meet these needs.
The water crisis is a big problem these days. The impending water crisis is predicted to be eyeing us. Anticipating this situation, we announced the creation of a new dedicated ministry, Jal Shakti, in which the Center and states will jointly develop schemes and policies to address the water crisis.
Our country needs doctors in huge numbers along with reliable medical facilities. To meet this demand, we need new laws, modernized infrastructure, new thinking and new opportunities to motivate young people to pursue health care. In this regard, we have formulated laws and taken important steps to ensure transparency in medical education.
