New Delhi: Addressing the nation from the ramparts of the Red Fort, Prime Minister Narendra Modi rolled out figures to point out how the number of people paying Income Tax has more than doubled and the far-reaching positive impact of GST and said that India is now celebrating honesty.

The Prime Minister said:

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.

Who did not want the passage of the GST yet it was pending for years? Last year GST became a reality. I want to thank the business community for the success of the GST.

Our country is undoubtedly progressing fast in its space missions. However, we have a dream; our scientists have a dream. We have resolved that by 2022, when India celebrates 75 years of Independence or maybe even before that, certainly some of our young boys and girls will unfurl the Tricolour in space.

With Mangalyaan our scientists have proved their capabilities. I feel proud to announce that very soon as a part of our Manned-Space mission, we shall be sending an Indian into space. This will be done through the pursuit of our esteemed scientists, and we will proudly find ourselves as the fourth such nation to have launched a successful Man Space Mission.

Mahatma Gandhi led the Satyagrahis to freedom. Today, the Swachhagrahis have to ensure a Swachh Bharat.

As important as economic growth is dignity of the individual. Initiatives such as Ujjwala and Saubhagya Yojana are enhancing the dignity of fellow Indians.

The healthcare initiatives of the Government of India will have a positive impact on 50 crore Indians. It is essential to ensure that we free the poor of India from the clutches of poverty due to which they cannot afford healthcare.

Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Abhiyaan will be launched on 25th September this year. It is high time we ensure that the poor of India get access to good quality and affordable healthcare.

The practice of Triple Talaq has caused great injustice among Muslim women. We are trying to end this practice but there are some people who are not wanting it to end.

Tripura, Meghalaya and many parts of Arunachal Pradesh are seeing historic peace.
From 126, Left Wing Extremism is restricted to 90 districts.

We are working to ensure peace across the nation. The OROP demand was pending for decades. The people of India, our brave army personnel had faith in us and we were able to take a decision on OROP.

We will always take decisions in the interests of our nation.

If we had continued at the same pace at which toilets were being built in 2013, the pace at which electrification was happening in 2013, then it would have taken us decades to complete them.

The Constitution of India, given to us by Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar has spoken about justice for all.

We have to ensure social justice for all and create an India that is progressing rapidly. The recently concluded Parliament session was one devoted to social justice. The Parliament session witnessed the passage of the Bill to create an OBC Commission.

On behalf of the people of India, I bow to all those great women and men who sacrificed themselves for the nation during the freedom movement.
