Dressed in a white kurta-pyjama and a colourful turban, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was received by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh at the Red Fort. He then inspected Guard of Honour. The Prime Minister then unfurled the Tricolour at the ramparts of the Red Fort. This was followed by the national anthem and a 21-gun salute. The duration of the 21-gun salutes coincides with the length of the national anthem which is 52 seconds.
The Prime Minister then addressed the nation from the ramparts of the 16th-century fort which is located in the Chandni Chowk area of Old Delhi. The speech was telecast live across all the channels of the Doordarshan and All India Radio. Before coming to Red Fort, he had paid homage to Mahatma Gandhi at Rajghat.
India attained freedom from the British rule on August 15 in 1947. Since then, the day is celebrated as the country’s Independence Day. The country’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru had then hoisted the Tricolour at the Lahori Gate of the Red Fort and made the announcement. Since then, the practice of unfurling the Tricolour at the Red Fort by the incumbent Prime Minister has been underway.
