On India’s 72nd Independence Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the long-awaited manned space mission by India, for which space agency ISRO has been prepping. By 2022, “a son or daughter of India will go to space with a tricolor in hand,” PM Modi said. The other big announcement was the rollout of the world’s largest government-funded healthcare programme — the Ayushman Bharat, which would benefit 50 crore people. Focussing on the achievements of his government in his fifth and final address from the ramparts of the Red Fort before next year’s elections, PM Modi said, “We can take tough decisions because nation’s interest is first for us, not the party’s”.
