In his address to the nation on the eve of the 74th Independence Day, President Kovind said while India believes in peace it is also capable of giving a befitting response to any attempt of aggression as shown by its troops in Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh after “some in our neighbourhood” tried to carry out their “misadventure of expansion”, in a veiled message to China.

He also spoke about the ‘Aatmanirbhar’ initiative launched by the prime minister, and allayed fears of foreign investors, saying India’s self-reliance means being self-sufficient without alienating or creating distance from the world, with which it would continue to engage.
