My dear people of India, on this occasion my greetings to all of you: PM begins his speech

This is no ordinary morning. This is a morning of hope of the dreams and aspirations of 125 crore Indians: PM

The Prime Minister pays tributes to all those great people who laid down their lives for India, during India’s freedom struggle.

There is simplicity in every Indian and there is unity in every corner of India. This is the strength of India: PM

If the unity of India is destroyed then the dreams of the people are also destroyed: PM

Be it casteism or communalism there is no place for them. In no way can they be tolerated: PM

This is Team India, a team of 125 crore Indians. This is the Team that makes the Nation and takes our Nation to new heights: PM

Jan Bhagidari is the biggest asset of a democracy: PM

Be it MyGov, letters from citizens, Mann Ki Baat, communication with people…daily Jan Bhagidari is increasing: PM

All our schemes must serve the poor: PM

Nobody wants to remain poor. Those who are poor want to move away from poverty. That is why, all our programmes must be for the poor: PM

There is a new atmosphere of trust: PM

The doors of the banks were not open for the poor. We decided this must end. We wanted to strengthen financial inclusion: PM

Bank accounts are essential for integrating the poor into the financial system: PM

After all who are the banks for, they are for the poor: PM

When the branch of a bank is built somewhere, people rejoice. But this is still easy. Getting people to those banks takes effort: PM

We have focussed on social security: PM

We have emphasised on a new work culture: PM

Last time from the Red Fort I spoke about toilets and cleanliness. People wondered what kind of PM is he, talking about these issues: PM

If there is something that has touched every person, it is the movement towards cleanliness: PM

People from all walks of life, spiritual leaders, media friends, celebrities, everyone has worked to create awareness: PM

Who has given maximum strength to Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan? It is the children of India: PM

We introduced Shrameva Jayate Yojana. It is an effort to chage the way we look at the workers of India: PM

Dignity of labour has to be our national duty, it has to be a part of our nature: PM

Some people like to remain in ‘Nirasha’. And they are not satisfied till they have spoken about it to other people: PM
