President Droupadi Murmu’s address nation on Republic Day eve

New Delhi: On the eve of 74th Republic Day, President Droupadi Murmu on Wednesday asserted that women will do the most to shape the India of tomorrow. She also talked about the future of G20 under India’s leadership, climate change, Indian Army and much more.

I have no doubt in my mind that women are the ones who will do the most to shape tomorrow’s India

In her address to the nation, she said that celebrating the Republic Day means celebrating what we have achieved, together, as a nation. She said that India will always remain grateful to Dr BR Ambedkar, who headed the Drafting Committee of the Constitution, and thus had a critical part in giving it the final shape.

“We should also remember the role of jurist BN Rau, who had prepared initial draft and other experts and officers who helped in making of Constitution. We are proud of fact that members of that assembly represented all regions and communities of India and that they included 15 women too,” she added.

The President went on to say that women’s empowerment and gender equality are no longer mere slogans, as India has made great progress towards these ideals in recent years.

“I have no doubt in my mind that women are the ones who will do the most to shape tomorrow’s India.”

Further talking about the country, President Murmu said India has been among the fastest-growing major economies and this has been made possible by timely and pro-active interventions from the Government.

“The Gaganyaan program to carry Indian astronauts into the space is under progress. This will be India’s maiden human space flight,” she asserted.

Shifting focus to India’s G20 presidency, President Droupadi Murmu opined that the G20 presidency is an opportunity to promote democracy and multilateralism, and the right forum for shaping a better world and a better future.

“Under India’s leadership, I’m sure, G20 will be able to further enhance its efforts to build a more equitable and sustainable world order. As G20 represents about two-thirds of the world population and around 85% of global GDP, it is an ideal forum to discuss and find solutions for global challenges. To my mind, global warming and climate change are the most pressing among them,” she added.

On the occasion of Republic Day, she conveyed her special appreciation to the country’s jawans who guard our borders and are ready to make any sacrifice for the country.

“I also express my appreciation for all the brave soldiers of paramilitary forces and police forces,” she said concluding her address.
