PM Modi referred to the repeal of Jammu and Kashmir's special status quite a few times in his speech. "We do not believe in creating problems or dragging them. In less than 70 days of our new Government, Article 370 was revoked, and in both Houses of Parliament, 2/3rd of the members supported this move. The old system in Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh led to corruption, nepotism but there was injustice when it came to rights of women, children, Dalits, tribal communities," he said.
Delivering his first Independence Day speech in the second term of the BJP government, Prime Minister Narendra Modi presented a wholistic speech touching upon a variety of issues from the ramparts of the Red Fort. He also briefly touched upon the topic of population control and the need for social awareness on the subject. #IndependenceDay #PMModiSpeech
Rights of Muslim women was another topic the Prime Minister touched on a few times during his speech. "Several Islamic countries did away with the obsolete Triple Talaq law long ago. Then why did it take us so long to repeal this? When we can do away with Sati, child marriages, then why not Triple Talaq. We guarantee the safety of our mothers and sister," said the PM.
