SNS | New Delhi |

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said he was “impressed with the range of topics” that people wanted him to address in his 15th August speech.

“Have been going through some of the ideas received for the 15th Aug speech. Impressed with the range of topics on which people shared views. Keep your ideas coming,” Modi tweeted.

“Share what you feel should be a part of the 15th Aug speech, on the NM App Open Forum,” he said in another tweet.
Modi had sought people’s ideas for his Independence Day speech in the last (30 July) edition of his monthly radio programme, ‘Mann Ki Baat’ as well as on Twitter.

Modi had said: “When I address the nation from the ramparts of the Red Fort on 15th August, I am merely the medium. The voice is of 125 crore Indians.”

“Share your ideas for the speech on 15th August, on the specially created open forum on the NM App,” said Modi in another tweet along with a link of the forum.
