President Ram Nath Kovind’s pitch for ‘New India’ by 2022

New Delhi: President Ram Nath Kovind on Monday pitched for a partnership between citizens and the government to create a New India by 2022 that is a “compassionate society” and includes the “humanist component integral to the nation’s DNA”.

Building a New India requires adhering to certain parameters

In his maiden address to the nation on the eve of 71st Independence Day, Kovind said building a New India requires adhering to certain parameters – like a house for every family, power on demand, better roads and telecom, a modern railway network, rapid and sustained growth.

“And yet there is more. New India must include that integral humanist component that is in our DNA, and which has defined our country and our civilisation. New India must be a society rushing towards the future, but also a compassionate society,” Kovind said.

He said the vision of a New India is one where every Indian is equipped to fulfil his or her potential and do so in a manner that leaves each one of us content and happy.
“I am confident that a strong partnership between citizens and the government will allow us to meet the goals of New India,” he said.

The most critical factor for nation-building is educating the future generation, he added, and appealed to everyone to help at least one child other than their own get educated by enrolling them in school, paying their fees and buying them books.
