The world is appreciating India for its services towards humanity. The policies being made in India, the work being done towards public welfare, for these the nation is being felicitated today.
"Through the United Nations' Champion of the Earth Award and the Seoul Peace Prize, the world has honoured India," Prime Minister Modi added.
He also took note of India's progress in the field of digital infrastructure, saying, "Today India is making tremendous progress in the field of digital infrastructure. Broadband connectivity is reaching villages, and there are over 100 crore mobile phones active in India."
