"I am delighted to invite you all to share your valuable inputs for my speech on 15th August," he tweeted.

An 'open forum' has been created on the to receive suggestions.

"Let your thoughts be heard by 130 crore Indians from the ramparts of the Red Fort," he said.

This will be Modi's first speech, after he returned to power with a massive majority in the Lok Sabha elections held a few months ago.
