August 14, 2019 19:27


President Kovind addresses the nation on the eve of Independence Day:

"They (the recent changes made in Jammu-Kashmir & Ladakh) will enable the people to access and enjoy the same rights, same privileges and same facilities as their fellow citizens in the rest of the country.

"These include progressive, egalitarian laws and provisions related to Right to Education; accessing public info through Right to Information; reservations in education and employment and other facilities for deprived communities; and justice for our daughters by abolishing unequal practices such as instant triple talaq."
