During his address, PM Modi listed achievements of his governments and laid out various plans for the future. 

Here are some top quotes from PM Modi's Independence Day speech:

4) The Prime Minister urged youth to make India developed country by 2047. “I urge the youth, who will turn 50 at 2047, to take an oath to make India a developed country by 100 years of Independence. When we take an oath, we make it happen."
