PM Modi said that India’s Independence Day celebration is not just restricted to the country but is being witnessed all across the globe. PM Modi recalled the role of great leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, BR Ambedkar, Veer Savarkar and others in India’s freedom struggle and also raised women power that contributed immensely in country’s struggle for independence.
