Prime Minister Narendra Modi while delivering his fifth Independence Day address said that in order to fulfil the dreams of Indians, Baba Saheb Ambedkar gave us the Constitution which has been a guide for our country and taking forward the people. "Will you today debate as to the manner in which China has occupied Doklam, they are intruding into Ladakh and has been engulfing India from all sides", the Congress spokesperson alleged. "India used to be counted in the "Fragile Five" in the world".

Critics say that while Modi has adopted several initiatives, his tenure has been marred by violence against Muslim cattle traders and economic jolts through a countrywide ban on high-value notes and the botched launch of a unified taxation system. That is when we will realise the remarkable strides the nation has made. India is the sixth-largest economy in the world and Modi said worldwide institutions see India as giving strength to the world economy for the next three decades. However, NDA government ensured that farmers get their due.

Modi also announced the launch of new programme, Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana.

Modi further added that the veterans of the Armed Forces were demanding One Rank One Pension.

We are celebrating this Independence Day when every Indian anywhere in the world is proud that India is the sixth biggest economy in the world today. "There is no question of stopping or getting exhausted on the way", Modi said.

Modi drew a comparison between the situation in 2013 and how things stand today, and said if the pace of the UPA government's previous year was maintained, it would have taken decades, centuries and generations to build as many toilets, distribute as many LPG connections among the poor and lay down as much optical fibre as his government has done.

Named Chandrayaan-2, the vehicle will take between one and two months to reach orbit and once the rover reaches the surface it will explore the area around the south pole.

"[The] PM has given the target of 2022 and it's our duty to meet it", Kailasavadivoo Sivan said.

Reaffirming his mantra of "sabka saath, sabka vikas" (take everyone along, development for all), the Prime Minister said there would be no discrimination against any section and there would be no nepotism and favouritism.

'India will send into space - a man or a woman - by 2022, before that if possible, ' Modi confirmed. This scheme, which will ensure that the poor of the country get access to good quality and affordable healthcare, will be rolled out on September 25, the birth anniversary of Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay.
