President Kovind in his independence day speech outlined the vision for new India where “Every family should get a home, the country should have met electricity and water supply demands and have roads and rails laid out. But a New India should not just move towards the future but also be sensitive. We should be a society that embraces people living in border areas, who feel disconnected from the rest of the nation. We should be a society that thinks of its poorest citizens. We will build a New India where people can develop their talents to their full capacity. We need to build a society that has no information asymmetry. We must ensure that girls are not discriminated against and everyone receives an education. A fully literate and educated society is one of the goals of New India”.
The government has decided to launch a number of initiatives to mark the occasion of the 75th anniversary. The efforts of the government are directed towards making India’s presence felt at the global stage. More such decisions are expected to be taken by the government in the coming months.
