Message from Congress President Smt. Sonia Gandhi on the Occasion of Independence Day

New Delhi, August 15, 2022

Dear countrymen,

Wishing you all a very Happy 75th Independence Day Anniversary.

In the last 75 years, India has left an indelible mark on the international arena in all fields including science, education, health and information technology with the hard work of its talented Indians. India established a free, fair and transparent election system under the leadership of its visionary leaders on one hand, while strengthening democracy and constitutional institutions on the other. Along with this, India has made its proud identity as a leading country that has always lived up to the pluralistic test of language, religion and sect.

Friends, we have achieved a lot in the last 75 years, but today’s self-engaged government is bent on trivializing the great sacrifices of our freedom fighters and the glorious achievements of the country, which can never be accepted. Indian National Congress will strongly oppose any misrepresentation of historical facts for political gains and every attempt to put great national leaders like Gandhi-Nehru-Patel-Azad under question on the ground of falsity.

I once again wish all the countrymen a very Happy Independence Day of India and wish India a bright democratic future. Jai Hind!
