India's Modi Addresses the Nation on Its Independence Day

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday urged a more conciliatory approach towards Jammu Kashmir, saying problems can be solved by embracing the (Kashmiri) people rather than resorting to abuse or bullets.

- Speaking on terrorism aspect Modi said that there will be stern action over it.

"We may have grown up in despair, but now we have to move ahead with confidence", he said as he addressed the nation from the Red Fort, a sprawling 17th century fortress in the heart of New Delhi. An India, which is free of terrorism, corruption, dynasty politics, communalism and casteism. Referring to the steps taken to usher in a corruption-free environment, Modi said: "Our fight against black money and corruption will continue".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his Independence Day address invoked both Krishna and Arjun. "If there is a hawala transaction, the world is giving us information, the world is giving us details about the movement of terrorists", he said.

He said demonetisation of old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes last November had helped bring over Rs 3 lakh crore of unaccounted wealth into the banking system.

Mentioning the recent Gorakhpur tragedy where more than 70 children succumbed to encephalitis at Baba Raghav Das Medical College hospital, Rahul said the incident highlights the poor healthcare policies of the Modi government. Taking a swipe on those who cast their apprehension over its impact or to allay the fears that it hit the economy adversely, he said: "They said Modi gaya after demonetisation but it broke the back of corruption in country".

"Those who have indulged in corruption by cheating the poor, can not have a good night's sleep". Hurriyat Conference Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said that the region's problems could be solved if humanism and justice replaced bullets and abuses. "There was a feeling that the Centre was the big brother and states the younger brothers".

In his radio address "Mann Ki Baat" last month, Modi said he had received letters from people complaining that his Independence Day speeches were "a little too long" and promised to make a shorter speech.

- I admire the courage of women who have to suffer due to "Triple Talaq". "Only then, we can realise the India of our dreams", PM said. He said that government is giving a lot of support for the competitive federalism as well.
