He also stressed the need to control the population and achieve the goal of a five thousand billion dollar economy. When Modi addresses the country on the 74th Independence Day, he can refer to the government’s efforts in dealing with Kovid-19. This is the second year of the second term of the Modi government and the government has initiated a comprehensive reform initiative in the economy, while it has been badly affected by the Kovid-19.
