President Droupadi Murmu has called upon the citizens of the country to gain knowledge about their fundamental duties and follow them in letter and spirit. She said, this will take the country to new heights. In her address to the Nation on the eve of the 76th Independence Day, the President said that the keyword for India today is compassion for the downtrodden, the needy and for those on the margins.

"The keyword for India today is compassion; for the downtrodden, for the needy and for those on the margins. Some of our national values have been incorporated in our Constitution as the Fundamental Duties of the citizens. I appeal to every citizen to know about their Fundamental Duties and follow them in letter and spirit so that our nation reaches new heights."

President Murmu noted that the world has seen a new India rising in recent years, more so after the outbreak of COVID-19. She said, India’s response to the pandemic has been appreciated everywhere and India’s achievements in combating the pandemic have been better than those of many developed countries. She said, India launched the biggest vaccination drive in human history.

"We launched the biggest vaccination drive in human history with vaccines manufactured in the country itself. Last month we crossed the 200-crore mark in cumulative vaccine coverage. In combating the pandemic, our achievements have been better than those of many developed countries. For this feat, we are grateful to our scientists, doctors, nurses, paramedics and the staff associated with vaccination." 

In her first address to the nation after becoming the President, Ms Murmu said that India is among the fastest growing major economies in the world.

" India is among the fastest growing major economies in the world. India's start-up eco-system ranks high in the world. The success of start-ups in our country, especially the growing number of unicorns is a shining example of our industrial progress. The government and policy-makers deserve credit for beating the global trend and helping the economy flourish."

President Droupadi Murmu mentioned that during the last few years, unprecedented progress has been made in the development of physical and digital infrastructure. She said that all the modes of connectivity are being integrated through the Pradhan Mantri Gati-Shakti Yojana to enable seamless transportation across the country.

"Through the Pradhan Mantri Gati-Shakti Yojana, all the modes of connectivity based on water, land, air etc. are being integrated in the whole country to enable seamless transportation across the country. For the vibrancy of growth visible in our country, credit must also be given to workers and farmers whose hard work has made it possible and entrepreneurs whose business acumen has created wealth. What is all the more heartening is that the growth is becoming more inclusive and regional disparities too are reducing." 

Ms Murmu said, a series of economic reforms and policy initiatives have been paving the way for a long term growth of the country. She said, Digital India is creating the bedrock of a knowledge economy. On ‘National Education Policy, the President said it is aimed at preparing the future generation for the next stage of industrial revolution while also reconnecting it with India's heritage. Ms Murmu said, stress on good governance is at the core of the transformation.

"At the core of the transformation, we have been witnessing in healthcare, education, economy as well as a number of related areas is the stress on good governance. When work is done with the spirit of ‘Nation First’, it is bound to reflect in every decision and every sector. This is also reflected in India’s standing in the world."

President Murmu said India’s new-found confidence stems from the spirit of its youth, its farmers, and above all, its women. She added that gender inequalities are reducing and women are moving ahead, breaking many glass ceilings and their increasing participation in social and political processes will prove decisive. She emphasised that the country’s daughters are the biggest hope for the nation and some of them brought laurels for the country at the recently held Commonwealth Games.

"At the grassroots level, we have more than 14 lakh elected women representatives in Panchayati Raj Institutions. Our daughters are the biggest hope for the nation. Some of them brought laurels for the country at the recently held Commonwealth Games. Of course, India’s sportspersons have been making the country proud by their performance in international competitions. A large number of our winners come from underprivileged segments of society. From becoming fighter pilots to space scientists, our daughters are scaling great heights." 

In her address, the President mentioned that when the environment is facing new challenges, we must remain determined to preserve all that makes India beautiful. She said, conserving water, soil and bio-diversity is duty towards our children. She noted that with traditional life style Indians can show the way to the rest of the world. She said, Yoga and Ayurveda are India's invaluable gifts to the world and their popularity is on the rise all over the globe.

President Droupadi Murmu said, in March last year, the country began the ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ with the re-enactment of the Dandi March. She said, the celebrations began with a tribute to that watershed event which had put India’s struggle on the world map. She added that this festival is dedicated to the people of India and based on the success achieved by the people.

"Based on the success achieved by the people, the resolve to build 'Atmanirbhar Bharat' is also a part of this Mahotsav. Citizens from all age-groups have keenly participated in a series of events held across the country. This grand festival is going ahead with the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga Abhiyan’. The Indian tricolours are fluttering in every nook and corner of the country. Great martyrs would have been thrilled to see the spirit of the Independence Movement coming alive again on such a massive scale."

Extending her greetings to all Indians on the eve of Independence Day, the President said India is completing 75 years as an independent nation. She said, 14th of August is observed as ‘Partition Horrors Remembrance Day’ so as to promote social harmony, unity and empowerment of people.

President said that lessons learnt during the period of 75 years of Independence will prove useful as we move towards the next milestone in the journey of the nation - the Amrit Kaal, the 25 years to the celebration of the centenary of country’s Independence. She said, by the year 2047, India will have fully realised the dreams of our freedom fighters.

President Droupadi Murmu said that the country has given its citizens everything they have in their life and people should take pledge to give everything they can, for the sake of safety, security, progress and prosperity of the country.
