Now we have to go to the saturation. It is time that 100 percent of the villages have roads, 100 percent of households have bank accounts, 100 percent beneficiaries have Ayushman Bharat cards, 100 percent eligible persons have Ujjwala scheme gas connection.''

PM Modi said that victory and defeat continued to come, but the desire for freedom in mind has never ended.''

Today, many people have lost their lives in floods and landslides in many parts of the country. PM Modi clapped for all the sportspersons here. The pain of partition still pierces the chest of India, one of the greatest centuries of the last century. India has decided that 14th August will now be remembered as Bifurcation Horror Commemoration Day every year. Those who suffered atrocities at the time of partition will now be respected.''

Later, PM Modi also said that Pradhan Mantri Gatishakti yojana will be announced, it will be a scheme worth over Rs 100 lakh crore, bringing employment opportunities to lakhs of youth. This will be a master plan for the country which will lay the foundation for new infrastructure. The Corona period came with a lot of challenges, the country faced these difficulties together. It is our strength that today we did not have to depend on any foreign country for the vaccine, what would have happened if India had not had its own vaccine. India lost many years in getting a polio vaccine, but our scientists created history during such a big crisis.
