New Delhi, Aug 15 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday urged the citizens to work in the national interest, beyond personal benefits.
"Everything is not for us. There are some things that should be for the nation," Modi said while delivering his first Independence Day address from the Red Fort.
"Let's think beyond 'what about me' and look at the nation," he said.
The prime minister added it is our duty to build the nation of our forefather's dreams.
"Is it our duty to build an India that our forefathers dreamt of. Do we think how our work is helping the poor of India," he asked.
