India Independence Day: Modi hails democracy and diversity

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi made an annual address from the Red Fort in Delhi to mark the country’s 77th Independence Day on Tuesday, reports DW.

He spoke of a new era of abundance. He said the government will take several decisions in the near future which will influence the next 1,000 years for the country.

“Today we have demography, today we have democracy and we have diversity,” he said, adding that they are the key instruments for India’s future. He lauded his government for carrying out several reforms in the last nine years of his leadership.

Independence Day tradition in India
On August 14, 1947 — on the eve of India’s independence from British rule — the nation’s first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, hoisted the national flag from the Red Fort in Delhi followed by the famous speech known as “Tryst with Destiny.”

Since then, every year the Indian flag is unfurled at the fort.

Modi is the 13th prime minister to give an Independence Day speech at the historical fort. He paid homage to the country’s freedom fighters on the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, reaffirming the “commitment to fulfilling their vision.”
