President Ram Nath Kovind is addressing the nation on the eve of 74th Independence Day.

This year’s Independence Day will take place amid the Covid-19 crisis. It also comes amid the border standoff between Indian and Chinese troops in the eastern Ladakh. India and China have been holding diplomatic and military talks on disengagement of troops from all the friction points in eastern Ladakh.

Special arrangements have been made at the iconic Red Fort in the national capital to mark the 74th Independence Day. Over 4,000 people including diplomats, officials and media personnel have been invited for the ceremony at the Red Fort and it is being organised maintaining a balance between dignity of the event and factoring in COVID-19 protocols, the defence ministry said.
