In his last Mann Ki Baat address, PM Modi urged people to share their ideas for his Independence Day address.
"I'm happy to say that for the last three years, I have been getting suggestions from every corner of the country for August 15," PM Modi said.
Thousands of comments and suggestions on topics, subjects that PM Modi should refer have since been registered on these platforms. According to officials, over 6,000 comments have been received on the app and MyGov have got more than 2,000 submissions so far.
"On August 15, I get an opportunity to communicate with the country from the ramparts of the Red Fort. I am merely an instrument. It is not one single person who makes that address, but it is the collective voice of 1.25 billion of my countrymen that resounds from the Red Fort," PM Modi had said.
He has also promised that he will keep his Independence Day address under an hour. "I plan to keep my speech short this time... not more than 40-50 minutes," he said and added, "... one consistent complaint has been that my speeches tend to be a little lengthy."
