India’s new-found confidence stems from spirit of youth, farmers, and above all, its women: President Murmu

Extending her greetings to all Indians on the eve of Independence Day, the President said India is completing 75 years as an independent nation. She said, the 14th of August is observed as ‘Partition Horrors Remembrance Day’ so as to promote social harmony, unity and empowerment of people. The President said, that Independence Day is a cause of celebration not only for all of us but also for every advocate of democracy around the world. She said, in most other well-established democracies, women had to wage long-drawn struggles to get the right to vote, but India adopted universal adult franchise right since the beginning of the Republic.

President said that lessons learned during the period of  75 years of Independence will prove useful as we move towards the next milestone in the journey of the nation – the Amrit Kaal, the 25 years to the celebration of the centenary of the country’s Independence. She said, by the year 2047, India will have fully realised the dreams of our freedom fighters.

President Droupadi Murmu said that the country has given its citizens everything they have in their life and people should take pledges to give everything they can, for the sake of safety, security, progress and prosperity of the country.
