Modi seeks suggestions for Independence Day speech


Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday invited suggestions from people for his Independence Day speech to be delivered from the ramparts of the Red Fort in Delhi on August 15, saying it will allow thoughts of the common man to be heard by the entire nation. "I am delighted to invite you all to share your valuable inputs for my speech on 15th August," he tweeted.

 "Let your thoughts be heard by 130 crore Indians from the ramparts of the Red Fort," he said. For the past four years, Modi has directly invited ideas and suggestions from people for his Independence Day speech. An 'open forum' has been created on the NaMo App to receive suggestions. This will be Modi's first Independence Day speech on his return to power with a landlside majority in the parliamentary elections held a few months ago.
