Your idea can get into PM's Independence-Day speech

On the eve of his fourth Independence Day address, Congress on Monday gave a wishlist to Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying it expected him to give an account of his "achievements" over the last three years. "Thank you @realDonaldTrump", the prime minister tweeted.

In a televised address, President Ram Nath Kovind earlier told his compatriots that it was the nation's resolve to achieve several milestones for a New India.

Maken said Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi had flagged the issue of encephalitis in September past year, which fell on deaf ears because of sheer arrogance.

"People are now complaining that funds which were being sanctioned for encephalitis control have been stopped", Maken said, quoting Gandhi.

"Neither the post-mortem has been done, nor the list of names of children who died have been provided by the state government". Oxygen supply was allegedly disrupted after bills were not paid to the vendor. Yet no step was taken to ensure continuous supply of oxygen. Three years ago, when Modi gave his first speech from the rampart, he revived the tradition of former prime ministers by referring to a piece of paper containing only the salient points.

"No list of dead children has been provided by the government so far".

Pointing that so many people were involved in "lapses and negligence" leading to the tragic deaths, he demanded cases be registered against the accused under relevant sections of IPC for "deliberate criminal negligence".
