Listen to this article

Addressing the nation from the ramparts of the Red Fort on the 76th Independence Day,  Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the two big challenges before the country are nepotism and dynasty, and corruption, asserting that "we have to fight" against these together.

Modi described nepotism as an "evil" and said the country needs to come together against it.

"We need to give opportunities to those who are talented and will work for the progress of the nation. Talent will be the basis of New India," he said.

"When I talk about nepotism and dynasty, people think I am talking about politics only. No, unfortunately, this evil of politics has nurtured nepotism in every institution," Modi said.

He further said that to cleanse every institute in India, opportunities should be given to people who deserve them.

"We need to come together as a society to punish those who have propagated the evil of corruption," he added.

Modi further said the nation shows "anger towards corruption, but not the corrupted".

"Until and unless, people have the mentality of penalizing the corrupt, the nation cannot progress at an optimum pace," he said.

Modi in his speech emphasized the fight against corruption and nepotism or dynasty, the two big challenges before the country.

"We have to fight against corruption with all our strength. In the last eight years, we detected black money using Aadhaar, DBT, and mobile."
