The PM also addressed the public meeting. He said that today is a big day for the country's maritime security. Be it the nation's military security or economic security, India is witnessing huge opportunities today.


Narendra Modi said that the launch of India's first indigenous aircraft carrier in Kochi sometime back has filled every Indian with pride. Now here in Mangaluru, projects worth more than Rs 3700 crore have been inaugurated, including foundation stone and Bhumi Pujan. With the expansion of the capacity of Mangaluru Port, many projects have started here to increase the income of the refinery and fishermen. These projects will give strength to trade and industry in Karnataka. The products of farmers and fishermen of Karnataka being developed under One District One Product will be easier to reach the international markets.


India will become developed with the expansion of the manufacturing sector and Make in India

Narendra Modi said that this time on Independence Day, the first of the five vows I have talked about is the creation of a developed India. To build a developed India, it is very important to expand the country's manufacturing sector and Make in India. To build a developed India, it is necessary that our exports increase.


Our product should be competitive in terms of cost in the world. This is not possible without cheap and easy logistics. With this thinking, unprecedented work is being done on the country's infrastructure for the last eight years. Today there is hardly any part of the country where no major infrastructure project is going on. The roads of the states bordering Bharatmala are being strengthened, while the roads of the coastal area are getting power from Sagarmala.
