Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his speech from the Red Fort on India’s 75th Independence Day, mentioned the many challenges facing the country today. Let’s read what are the main issues mentioned by the prime minister.
PM Modi said, “I know the challenges are many. The constraints are many. There are also problems. There are many. We are constantly trying. We find ways. But I want to discuss two issues here. Discussion of many. topics, but due to lack of time, I only want to talk about two topics.”
“Definitely, I want to talk about only two issues without talking about everyone. One is corruption, and the other is nepotism, nepotism.”
What did PM Modi say about corruption?
Prime Minister Modi spoke extensively about the issue of corruption in his speech from the Red Fort.
He said: “In a country like India, where people are struggling with poverty. On the one hand there are people who don’t have a house to live in. On the other, there are people who don’t have a place to live keep the stolen property.
Saying that “the situation is not good”, Prime Minister Modi has asserted that his government is trying to fight corruption with all its might.
He said, “In the last eight years, through direct benefit transfer, Aadhar, Mobile, using all these modern systems, we have saved two billion rupees that used to go into wrong hands and put them to good work of the country . . . have been successful.”
The Prime Minister also mocked the previous governments.
He said: “Those who ran away robbing banks in previous governments, confiscating their properties and forcing many to go to prison.”
The Prime Minister said that there is a need to change society’s attitude towards corruption.
He said: “Until corruption and hatred towards the corrupt is created, they are not forced to look down on them socially, then this mentality will not end.”
“It is worrying that today you see hatred of corruption, expressed in the country, but sometimes leniency is shown towards the corrupt. Even after he has decided to go to jail, even after going to jail , we continue to glorify him.
“As long as there is no hatred towards filth in the society, consciousness towards cleanliness does not arise. As long as the feeling of corruption and hatred towards the corrupt does not arise, they are not forced to look down socially, until then This mentality will not end.”
The Prime Minister stated that the efforts against corruption are going in a decisive direction.
He said: “I can clearly see that we are now taking a decisive step against corruption. Even the big ones will not be able to escape. Corruption is emptying the country like a termite, I must fight it, it must be accelerated, s ‘must lead to a turning point”.
“Our effort is that those who have looted the country must be returned, we must create this situation.”
In his speech, PM Modi also spoke in detail about familyism after corruption and also said that this challenge is not only in the political arena.
He said, “When I talk about nepotism and nepotism, people think that I am only talking about politics. No, unfortunately this evil in the political arena has fueled nepotism in every institution in India.
The Prime Minister said that due to familiarity, merit is not being appreciated in the country.
He said: “Familism is enveloping many of our institutions in itself and because of this the talent of my country is being harmed, the strength of the country is being harmed. Those who have opportunities are being left out by cronyism. That too. It becomes in a cause of corruption, so that he who has no shelter, thinks to buy from somewhere and make himself a place.”
Prime Minister Modi said that to save the country’s institutions from nepotism and nepotism, “hatred will have to be created, awareness will have to be created” about it.
The Prime Minister alleged that nepotism is what has done the most damage to politics.
He said: “Even in politics, familyism has done more injustice to the strength of the country. Family politics is for the welfare of the family, it has nothing to do with the welfare of the country.”
The Prime Minister said that to keep the morale of the common people of the country high, it is necessary to get rid of nepotism.
He said, “For the purification of Indian politics, for the purification of all Indian institutions, we must free the country from the mentality of this cronyism and move towards taking the country forward on the basis of merit, that is an imperative, otherwise. Everyone’s mind remains frustrated, because everyone thinks that I was qualified for this, I didn’t get it, because my paternal uncle, my maternal uncle, the grandparents, the maternal grandparents were not there.This state of mind is not good for anyone.
Prime Minister Modi, while talking about familism, recently gave the example of the Commonwealth Games.
He said: “It’s not that there was no talent in front of the country, nobody used to play in India, but the selection was done through nepotism, so they used to come to the playground, that country they used to go till then. , but no they had nothing to do with victory or defeat but when the selection started with full transparency, the ability started to be respected, then today we see India’s tricolor fluttering in the world’s playground, the anthem is sung national of India”.
What else PM Modi said
- Even after 75 years of independence, the voice that our ears yearned to hear, that voice has been heard today. After 75 years, the #MadeInIndia cannon has done the job of saluting the tricolor at the Red Fort for the first time.
- Decades after independence, the world’s attitude towards India has changed. The world looks towards India with anticipation.
- The mantra of ‘Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan’ given by Lal Bahadur Shastri remains an inspiration for the country. Atal ji had added one more link saying “Jai Vigyan” but now there is another imperative for Amritkal which is “Jai Anusandhan”. ‘Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan, Jai Vigyan, Jai Anusandhan.’
- For one reason or another, this distortion has come in us, in our speech, in our behavior, in some of our words… we insult women. Can we commit to getting rid of everything that humiliates women in our daily lives, by nature, by culture?
