Showcasing India’s economic transformation in the last four years, Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled a robust vision of the country’s future in his speech from the majestic Red Fort on the 72nd Independence Day on August 15, 2018.
“We are celebrating this Independence Day when every Indian anywhere in the world is proud that India is the sixth biggest economy in the world today. India used to be counted in the ‘Fragile Five’ in the world. But today, India is a multi-billion dollar investment. The narrative changed. Businesses used to talk about red tape, now they talk about red carpet. They used to talk about policy paralysis, today they talk about reform, perform, transform. The honest taxpayer of India has a major role in the progress of the nation. It is due to them that so many people are fed, the lives of the poor are transformed,” he said.
