Education, cleanliness, environment, digitisation and girls’ literacy are the themes regarding which Prime Minister Narendra Modi has received most of the suggestions from the public for inclusion in his upcoming Independence Day address. The suggestions have been made by the people in response to the prime minister’s invitation to them to share their ideas and inputs to be included in his Independence Day address, according to official sources.

In his last ‘Mann Ki Baat’ radio programme on July 30, Modi had said, “On August 15, I get an opportunity to communicate with the country from the ramparts of the Red Fort. I am merely an instrument. It is not one single person who makes that address, but it is the collective voice of 1.25 billion of my countrymen that resounds from the Red Fort.”

This has generated a tremendous response and thousands of comments and views are pouring in on the specially-created open forums on ‘Narendra Modi App’ and ‘MyGov’ portal, the sources said. Over 6,000 comments were received on the Narendra Modi App while more than 2,000 suggestions were made on ‘MyGov’ portal, they said. Most of the suggestions relate to the issues of education, ‘swachh bharat’, environment conservation, digitisation and ‘Beti Padhao’, the sources said.

Modi, a believer in participative governance, regularly invites people to share their opinions and views on various subjects and incorporates people’s suggestions in his speeches. This is the routine he has particularly followed with regard to his monthly ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme.

    Now a days there is no independence in India. Because a common man is straggling from Jr. Court to district court to get proper justice. He always waits several years. Why. Every lawyer says that there is several old case pending, so cannot possible present case to clear. It will take time 3-4years. Where is independence. 10th class one year, Law also 2 years, inter 3 years, degree 2-4years. But no time limit civil case. Police cannot take FIR. Law will pass with in years, but cases are going several years. Please sir arrange time limit and increase mobile court. Please save common man money and time. Common man waste money for court traveling, lawyers and police fees. Please save our Indian law.
