Last year, from the very same Red Fort, Prime Minister Modi articulated his vision for India’s future. His call for a developed India by 2047, the eradication of colonial vestiges, embracing cultural heritage, fostering unity, and citizens embracing the values of integrity and duty, collectively known as “Panch Prana,” resonated deeply with the citizens. This year’s address is anticipated to carry even greater significance as it marks the last time Prime Minister Modi will address the nation from this historic site before the impending 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
Highlighting the significant role of women in the nation’s progress, Prime Minister Modi declared, “Women-led development is the pathway to a prosperous nation.” The accomplishments of Indian women, from pioneering pilots in civil aviation to leading scientific endeavors like the Chandrayaan mission, have garnered international recognition. Prime Minister Modi pledged to further empower women through self-help groups and technology advancements.
