PM Says 2017 Special, Urges Creation Of New India

Narendra Modi

Talking about the idea behind the song, Salim said, "A few months back, we met Prime Minister Narendra Modi who suggested we should make a song for the country to celebrate the 70th Independence Day".

- We have to take the country forward with the determination of creating a "New India". Pitching for harmony and peace, he said Bharat Jodo (connect India) should be the slogan like Bharat chhodo (Quit India) was during the freedom struggle.

Every reform measure initiated with national cause in view is bound to affect one section or the other to some extent and such sections also need to be pacified.

"Be it Left-wing extremism, terrorism, be it infiltration or be it tackling the forces trying to foment trouble inside, our people in uniform have always given sacrifices", he said.

On Modi's call for embracing strife-hit Kashmiris, Sharma said, "We have never stopped him from embracing Kashmiris".

He added that his government is committed to restoring "the lost glory" of Kashmir and its status as "heaven on earth".

Modi used his address, which lasted 55 minutes, to reel out the various steps taken on the economic front by the Government to free the country from corruption and black money.

Highlighting the enormity of the black money menace, Modi said up to 400 bogus firms were found to be operating from a single address.

- The poor and tribal people have received gas connection, they have been empowered.

"Of these, the registrations of 175,000 companies have been cancelled", he said.

More than 300,000 "shell companies" funded by undeclared finance had been uncovered through irregular transactions.

The Prime Minister strongly displayed his commitment to continue to fight against corruption.

Goods and Services (GST) and demonetisation, Modi said, has helped brought in transparency, clamped down on the parallel economy and brought in lakhs of tax dodgers into the legitimate financial system.

He said the role of technology has also helped immensely in implementing the new tax regime.

However, he chose to break his silence while addressing the nation and said that innocent children have lost their lives and the citizens of the country stand together at this time of crisis.

"Large numbers of farmers are joining the crop insurance scheme".

- India achieved record crop production despite natural calamities; production of pulses saw a record, govt bought 16 lakh ton. We are taking the nation on a new track (of development) and are moving ahead with speed.

"This is a special year".

He further said, "1st January 2018 will not be an ordinary day- those born in this century will start turning 18". India invites them to come and write a new future, design a New India.

" The I-Day celebration has been marred by the Gorakhpur tragedy in which scores of children died in a state-run hospital". No one is small or big in our country.

Referring to collective power of the people, he said it forced the British Empire to leave India. Muslim women have challenged the validity of Triple-Talaq in the Supreme Court arguing that it discriminates against women.
