In PM Modi’s Independence day speech for the 6th consecutive year, he spoke about Article 370, water conservation, population explosion and development. He once again said that India is on the path to becoming a $5 trillion economy and that wealth creators should be respected and not eyed with suspicion.
He also spoke about the Jal Jivan mission for water conservation and said that states centre will work together on this.
The most important point he made however might be about single-use plastic which is a big menace to India’s environment. He has urged all citizens and businesses to shun the use of single use plastics. It is to be seen if the government will actually ban its use or provide viable alternatives to people.
What do you think are the biggest problems India faces today?
