Vice President Naidu addresses the nation on the eve of Independence Day
While greeting the people of India on the eve of Independence Day, in a message, Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu called upon the citizens to strive towards building a new India by eliminating poverty, illiteracy and corruption.

The released text of Vice President's message stated, "I extend my warm greetings and good wishes to the people of our country on the joyous occasion of our Independence Day. On this auspicious occasion, let us take pride in the remarkable progress achieved by our nation in various fields and salute our valiant freedom fighters whose sacrifices brought freedom to our country from oppressive colonial rule."

He urged, "Let us resolve this Independence Day to strive towards building a new India by eliminating poverty, illiteracy and corruption and realising the dreams of the Father of the Nation and other valiant freedom fighters by achieving the cherished goals of prosperity, equality and dignity for every citizen of India."

According to Naidu, as India marches ahead as one of the fastest growing economies in the world, every citizen should work towards upholding the country's civilisational values and strengthening its unity and integrity.

As we know that in India, Independence Day falls on 15th of August and is celebrated as a national festival for commemorating the nation's independence from the British. On this day in 1947, transfer of legislative sovereignty to the Indian Constituent Assembly took place. At the national level, on Independence Day, the prime minister customarily raises the flag and gives an address to the nation.

A national holiday is observed throughout India with flag-hoisting ceremonies, parades and cultural events. There is a national holiday in schools and government offices. At many places, especially in schools, sweets are distributed after the flag hoisting ceremony.
