Excerpts from PM Modi’s address to the nation on the occasion of 74th Independence Day :
Our armed forces, our paramilitary and police forces are forever dedicated to protecting Maa Bharati and the common people; today is the day to salute their sacrifices.
From LOC to LAC, Indian Armed Forces have taught unforgettable lessons to our neighbours who dared to misadventure.
Respect for India’s sovereignty is supreme for us. What our brave soldiers can towards this resolution, What the country can do, the world has seen this in Ladakh.
They have been responded to in the language they understand.
India stands committed to defeat forces that aid and abet terrorism & expansionism.
