New Delhi : What we must endeavour is to create a India that's self-sufficient and poverty-ree of poverty, said President Draupadi Murmu, addressing a joint session of both Houses of Parliament as part of the budget speech. There should be cent percent dedication toward nation-building - one that should have women and youth leading upfront.

The country’s unity must be cemented and poverty eradication must become possible; the foundation for 2047, must begin to be laid, the President said in her Policy Announcement Speech.

The 75th anniversary of Independence marks nation-building time for a developed India. There has to be 100 percent dedication towards this. The current government is one that values honesty. This government has concern for nature as it does for development. The Ayushman Bharat scheme ensures treatment for the poor. Medicines are available at low cost through Jan Aushadhi centres.  No one is an outsider, that’s the government policy, the President said.
