Independence Day 2019 Live Updates: PM Modi set to address nation shortly | india news

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to deliver his sixth straight Independence Day address from the ramparts of the Red Fort in a matter of hours.

This will be his first Independence Day speech after the he led the NDA to a massive victory in the Lok Sabha elections to retain power for a second consecutive term.

His speech on Thursday will see him equal former BJP Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee’s record of six I-Day speeches.

Modi is expected to cover a host of issues, ranging from his government’s landmark decision on Jammu and Kashmir to the state of economy.

Modi had earlier used the I-Day address to announce his government’s showpiece programmes like ‘Swachh Bharat’, ‘Ayushman Bharat’ and India’s first manned space mission and present a report card on its performance to highlight how the country has grown under his watch.

Modi may seek to address concerns over the economic slowdown amid economic indicators suggesting that the current economic slowdown is likely to worsen. Passenger vehicles sales in India declined by 31% in July compared to the same month last year in the steepest fall in 19 years which has given rise to fears of massive job losses.
