New Delhi: The energy in India must help it to scale newer heights of progress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Monday.
Addressing the nation on Independence Day, the Prime Minister said: "Today on this special day, I convey my greetings to 125 crore Indians and the Indian community living overseas.
"May this energy guide the nation to scale newer heights of progress in the years to come."
He added, “in the the last 70 years people's expectations have changed. Announcement of policies and budget doesn't convince them. We have to show what has been achieved on the ground.”
"Yes, we face several problems. But we are capable of overcoming them," Modi said in his Independence Day speech from the Red Fort.
"India has lakhs of problems," he added. "But the 125 crore Indians have the intelligence to overcome them."
