“I am delighted to invite you all to share your valuable inputs for my speech on 15th August,” the Prime Minister tweeted.

An “open forum” has been created on the NaMo App to receive suggestions.

“Let your thoughts be heard by 130 crore Indians from the ramparts of the Red Fort,” he said.

PM Modi’s invite got an overwhelming response from the public and the net users. In just two hours, the NaMo app received as many as 850 inputs from various respondents. According to reports, about 850 suggestions were received by the NaMo App by 2.15 PM.

The suggestions sent by the respondents focussed on the need to ensure compulsory mass education, providing clean and potable drinking water for all citizens and strengthening the armed forces.
