“What are your thoughts and ideas for my 15th August speech? Share them with me on a specially created forum on the Narendra Modi App,” he tweeted.

The PM said he looks forward to receiving people’s “fruitful inputs” in the coming days.

For the past three years, Modi has directly invited ideas and suggestions from people for his Independence Day speech.
