Modi delivers Independence Day address

In his Independence Day address, Narendra Modi touched upon the achievements of his government, making it a point to refer to the scrapping of Article 370 and the banning of Triple Talaq.

"We do not believe in creating problems or dragging them. In less than 70 days of our new Government, Article 370 was revoked, and in both Houses of Parliament, 2/3rd of the members supported this move," the Prime Minister said.

He said that Triple Talaq had to go because Muslim women were scared. "When Islamic nations did away with it, why not India?" he asked.

Modi said that the mood in the country has changed enormously since 2014. "When I travelled across India in 2014, nobody believed this country can change. By 2019, I saw that everyone turned optimistic," he added.

"My government is committed to the water conservation mission. Jal Shakti Ministry has been formed for the same reason," he said. "We have also taken steps to make the medical profession people-friendly," the PM added.
