Reportedly President Ram Nath Kovind said the recent changes made in Jammu-Kashmir and Ladakh would be of immense benefit to those regions and he said, this will enable the people to access and enjoy the same rights, same privileges and same facilities as their fellow citizens in the rest of the country. Meanwhile these include progressive, egalitarian laws and provisions related to the Right to education, accessing public information through the Right to Information, reservations in education and employment and other facilities for traditionally deprived communities and justice for our daughters by abolishing unequal practices such as instant triple talaq.
Furthermore in his address to the nation on the eve of 73rd Independence Day, the President said, india is completing 72 years as a free nation at a very special juncture. Apparently Mr Kovind said, the illustrious generation that led the country to freedom did not perceive independence only in terms of transfer of political power. Hence they considered it a stepping stone in a longer and larger process of nation-building and national welding. Moreover Mr Kovind expressed happiness that the recently concluded session of Parliament saw lengthy and productive sittings of both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha.
Further he said many important Bills were passed, in a spirit of cross-party cooperation and constructive debate and their objective was to improve the life of each individual, each family and of society as a whole. Perhaps the President said on 2nd of October, the nation will celebrate the 150th birth anniversary of the Father of Nation, Mahatma Gandhi. Mr Kovind said, contemporary india is very different from the india in which Mahatma Gandhi lived and worked but Gandhiji remains extremely relevant. Also President said, this year also marks the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak, the founder of sikhism, and the reverence and respect he commands go far beyond just our Sikh brothers and sisters.
