“In this short span of time, we have taken important steps in every sector. Article 370 and 35A being revoked from Jammu and Kashmir is a step towards realising the dream of Sardar Patel.”

He said the work which was pending for the last 70 years was accomplished in less than 70 days under his government.

The Prime Minister said everyone wanted Article 370 to be scrapped, but they were waiting for the appropriate time.

He added that his government had taken important steps to end triple talaq, for the welfare of farmers and traders and also to make the medical sector even more people friendly.

Talking about water conservation, the Prime Minister said: “India understands the importance of water conservation and thus, a new Ministry for ‘Jal Shakti’ has been created.”

He also paid tribute to the those who laid their lives for the independence of the nation.

“There were many who laid their lives for the nation. Many were hanged to death for our freedom. Today I remember all of them. Today, for the development of our free India, everybody who has contributed to this, I remember all of them.”
