Excerpts from PM Narendra Modi's speech:
Today, we reaffirm our commitment to making India a developed nation by 2047
Since 1952, 41 heads of state from across the world have addressed our MPs in Central Hall
More than 4,000 laws have been passed by Parliament in the last seven decades
PM Modi mentions key bills passed such as triple talaq, and says many mistakes of the past were corrected in this Parliament.
It is our good fortune that Article 370 could be abrogated in this Parliament which was key for fighting terrorism, and separatism.
Today, Bharat is 5th largest economy but it is moving with resolve to be among the top three economies
Some people here may not think so but the world is confident about India's rise to be among top three economies
We are fortunate to be living in a time when Indian aspirations are at a height not seen in over 1,000 years
All laws made, and all debates in Parliament must be aimed at encouraging Indian aspirations
Indian aspirations must be a priority for all reforms we undertake
India must move to a bigger canvas now to reach its rightful place, there is no time for focusing on smaller issues.
Making India self-reliant is everyone's responsibility
