Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said the celebrations for India's 75 years of independence should reflect the spirit of the country's freedom movement and showcase its achievements to the world since 1947. Speaking after the first meeting of the 259-member high-level national committee headed by the prime minister to commemorate 75 years of India's independence, Modi said public participation should be the basis of the celebrations.
Meanwhile, in other developments, US State Secretary Antony Blinken has written to Afghan President Ashraf Ghani proposing a United Nations-facilitated peace conference with representatives of six countries, including India, to discuss a "unified approach to supporting peace in Afghanistan".
In the letter sent to Ghani, Blinken said that Turkey would be approached to host a senior-level meeting of both sides in the coming weeks to finalise a peace agreement.
