“We should celebrate 15th August 2017 as the Sankalp Parva or the Day of Resolve. We have to take a pledge to (make) un-cleanliness, poverty, terrorism, casteism and communalism (quit) India,” the PM underlined in his radio address on Sunday.
He also said that he would keep his Independence Day speech short this time.
Modi pointed out that after his previous speeches on August 15, he faced a complaint of his speeches being a little lengthy. So, this time, he has planned to keep his speech short, around 40 to 50 minutes.
