15th August 2023, In a switch from addressing the people of India as “my fellow citizens”, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday addressed the nation as his “family members” while speaking from the ramparts of the Red Fort on the 77th Independence Day.

Modi began his last Independence Day speech before the 2024 general election with, “My beloved 140 crore family members.” Throughout the speech, he referred to the people of the country as “parivaarjan (family members)”.

In his earlier speeches, PM had referred to the people of the country as “my beloved brothers and sisters”.

Addressing the nation on Independence Day for the 10th consecutive time as prime minister, Modi said global experts are saying that India will not stop now.

In his 10th consecutive and the last Independence Day speech ahead of the 2024 elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, “I will give an account of the country’s achievements on next August 15 from Red Fort.”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi sported a multicolour Rajasthani bandhani print turban with an off-white kurta and churidar for the 77th Independence Day celebrations at the historic Red Fort. For his 10th Independence Day speech as prime minister, Modi also wore a black V-neck jacket with the turban which was a mix of yellow, green and red colour with a long tail. It was in keeping with the tradition of PM Modi wearing colourful turbans on every Independence Day since 2014. Flamboyant and colourful turbans have been a regular feature in the prime minister’s attire for Independence Day and Republic Day events.
