NEW DELHI: President Droupadi Murmu on Sunday addressed the nation on the eve of the country’s 76th Independence Day.
In her maiden address to the nation on the eve of the 76th Independence Day, Murmu said major economic reforms are being accompanied by innovative welfare initiatives and the world has seen “a new India rising in recent years, more so after the outbreak of Covid-19”.
The president also lauded the government and policy-makers for “beating global trends and helping the economy flourish”.
Here are the top quotes from President Droupadi Murmu’s Independence Day address:

  1. For a nation, particularly an ancient one such as India, the passage of 75 years is merely a blink of an eye. But for us as individuals, it is a lifetime.
  2. Our beloved country has given us everything we have in our life. We should pledge to give everything we can for the sake of our country’s safety, security, progress and prosperity.
  3. Country’s growth is becoming more inclusive and regional disparities too are reducing.
  4. India’s newfound confidence stems from the spirit of its youth, its farmers, and above all, its women. Gender inequalities are reducing and women are moving ahead, breaking many glass ceilings.
  5. In most well-established democracies, women had to wage long struggles to get the right to vote. But India adopted a universal adult franchise right with the onset of the Republic. India can be credited for having helped the world discover the true potential of democracy.
  6. By 2047, we will have fully realised the dreams of our freedom fighters.
  7. India’s start-up ecosystem ranks high in the world. The success of start-ups in our country, especially the growing number of unicorns is a shining example of our industrial progress.
  8. A home of one’s own is no longer a dream for the poor, but a reality for more and more people, thanks to the ‘Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana’. Under ‘Jal Jeevan Mission’, tap water connection is being provided to every household.
  9. The great nationalist poet Kuvempu’s clarion call is for making total sacrifice for the motherland and upliftment of fellow citizens.
  10. For the vibrancy of growth visible in our country, credit must also be given to workers and farmers whose hard work has made it possible and entrepreneurs whose business acumen has created wealth.
  11. In combating the pandemic, our achievements have been better than those of many developed countries. We are grateful to our scientists, doctors, nurses, paramedics & the staff associated with vaccination.
