New Delhi: In her first ever address to the nation, newly-elected President Droupadi Murmu on Sunday wished all Indians on the eve of the 76th Independence Day.

The President also paid homage to those who lost their lives during the partition of 1947. Notably, 14 August, marks the Partition Horrors Remembrance Day, which Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced last year.

“My heartiest greetings in advance to all Indians living in the country and abroad on the eve of the 76th Independence Day. I am delighted to address you on this momentous occasion. India is completing 75 years as an independent nation. Fourteenth August is observed as ‘Partition Horrors Remembrance Day’ so as to promote social harmony, unity and empowerment of people. Tomorrow marks the day when we had freed ourselves from the shackles of colonial rulers and decided to reshape our destiny. As all of us celebrate the anniversary of that day, we bow to all those men and women who made enormous sacrifices to make it possible for us to live in a free India,” said President Murmu.

President Murmu is delivering her maiden address to the nation on Sunday on the eve of the 76th Independence Day, according to a Rashtrapati Bhavan statement, ANI reported.

The president’s address is being broadcast from 7 p.m. on the entire national network of All India Radio (AIR) and telecast over all channels of Doordarshan in Hindi followed by the English version.

“Broadcast of the address in Hindi and English on Doordarshan will be followed by broadcast in regional languages by regional channels of Doordarshan. AIR will broadcast regional language versions at 9.30 p.m. on its respective regional networks,” the statement said.

Murmu, 64, a tribal hailing from Odisha, took oath as the 15th president on 25 July. She is the youngest and first tribal to hold the top constitutional post. She is the first president to be born after independence, ANI reported.
