New Delhi:

As India marked another milestone on Sunday celebrating the 75th Independence Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while addressing the nation from the ramparts of the Red Fort, announced that the Centre will soon launch the Rs 100 lakh-crore Gati Shakti national infrastructure plan to boost the country’s economy.

Chalking out the government’s key plans over the next two years, Modi said, “In the coming days, we will launch the PM Gati Shakti Plan — a 100 lakh-crore national infrastructure master project that will make a foundation for holistic infrastructure and give an integrated pathway to our economy. To further increase our developmental progress, we have to focus on our manufacturing and export.”

The Prime Minister also launched the National Hydrogen Mission with the aim of making the India the world’s largest exporter of the gas. “India is the only nation that is on the path to meeting its climate goals. Green Hydrogen is the future of the world and I plan to make India the global hub.”

Calling small-scale farmers India’s pride, Modi, while advocating for their welfare, said. “We have to deal with the fact that our farmers now have less land to cultivate on. More than 80% of our farmers have less than 2 hectares of land. We have to focus on helping our small farmers. We have to give maximum benefits of the government’s schemes to them through DBT or Krishi Rail,” he said.
