PM Narendra Modi has sought ideas and suggestions for the Independence Day speech. http://www.narendramodi.in/contribute-your-insights-for-pms-speech-on-70th-independence-day-504987
In response to that….
I would request you include importance of libraries in your address to nation on 70th Independence Day.
I want you to strengthen libraries and empower librarians.
To empower rural India – improve libraries
To empower women – improve libraries
To improve education – improve libraries
Be counted in top 100 universities in world – improve libraries
Want high quality research output – improve libraries
You want to build a strong nation then strengthen libraries.
