Kashmiris observed India's Independence Day as Black Day

Prime Minister Narendra Modi after hoisting the Tricolour

Claiming that his government is committed towards ending the role of middleman, Modi said there would no longer be touts fooling people to play the role of "influencer" in granting them jobs.

Gandhi had yesterday alleged that the government's strategy had created a space in the troubled state of Jammu and Kashmir for Pakistan to "misbehave".

"In the name of faith, people are doing things which are disturbing harmony". During his campaign speech Modi had said he would generate two crore employment opportunities. "The problem will be solved by embracing every Kashmiri". Is the prime minister assuring us that Japanese Encephalitis will be conquered, that public investment in health will be doubled, or that primary health centres will be strengthened?

Stating that the speech gave a holistic view to the entire freedom struggle in the present day context, Rajnath said that the Prime Minister made a reference to every major touch point that led to massive political movement of 1942.

"The poison of casteism and communalism can never benefit the country".

Modi said the separatist campaign in the state can not be resolved by "gaali" (abuse) or "goli" (bullet) but by embracing every Kashmiri.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Tuesday called External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and discussed ways for greater synergy in foreign and defence engagements between India and the United States. "The discussions are expected to range across various issues from financial inclusion to insurance and even management of non-performing assets of the banking sector", said the person quoted above. Reposing its trust in the citizens, Modi said the government replaced the earlier system with the requirement of only self certification.

As expected, Modi broke his silence on the death of over 60 children in a government hospital in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh, mentioning it along with natural calamities like the floods ravaging various parts of the country.

Calling for resolving the issues through dialogue, he said that Indian forces should immediately withdraw from the valley.

Steps like demonetisation, notification of benami law and its enforcement to seize Rs 800 crore worth properties, crackdown on shell companies and post-demonetisation data mining to detect suspicious accounts, have underlined the Prime Minister's integrity, the Government's intent and his decisive decision-making ability. I want both to work together for India's good.

"Prime minister Modi has been busy dividing the country".

PM Modi also spoke about GST rollout in country.

PM Modi, attending the event, met with the entrepreneurs and talked about various ideas for India's development.
