On August 15, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation from the national capital's 17th century Mughal-era Red Fort to mark the 74th anniversary of India’s independence from British rule. In his nearly 90-minute speech, PM Modi listed his government’s achievements since he came in the power. The Prime Minister also hailed the country's COVID-19 vaccination drive. "We are proud that we didn’t have to depend on any other country for COVID-19 vaccines. Imagine what would have happened if India didn’t have its own vaccine," Modi said.
