Mann ki Baat Modi to address nation

Referring to the GST which was rolled out on July 1, the prime minister said, "one nation, one tax - how big a dream has been fulfilled". "Goods are also being transported much faster".

"Quit India Movement began on 9th August 1942 & on 15th August 1947 India became independent; the nation will celebrate 15th August 2017 as the "Sankalp Parv" this year and India will complete 75 years of Independence Day in 2022". "I am happy how India took pride in the team's accomplishment", he added. "There is a new found faith displayed by customers in traders", he said. All decisions have been taken unanimously by the States and the Centre together.

- PMO India (@PMOIndia) July 30, 2017Today, we do not have to die for the nation. "We will do this as a society and so on", Mr Modi said.

"We should also gradually make it our nature to set our work patterns according to the weather predictions, which could safeguard us against losses", the PM said. Poverty, corruption, communalism, casteism must quit India.

Modi also spoke about taking the nation forward and helping it reach new heights. We remember Mahatma Gandhi for his leadership during "Quit India" and we remember leaders like Lok Nayak JP & Dr Lohia who took part in it.
