Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra also extended the greeting of Independence Day to the nation via micro-blogging site in Hindi, which loosely translates to, "By offering countless sacrifices, India fulfilled the dream of freedom. Freedom for each one and the freedom of each one. Freedom to build the future, freedom to choose your way. We have to protect it at all costs."

"Today, the country had liberated. Today the courage had won. We saw the future on the base of truth and laid the foundation for one individual, one vote," she said in another tweet.
