In her message on the eve of 70th Independence Day, she appealed to every citizen to follow the solemn duty of protecting and preserving the values of freedom and equality.

Gandhi said, "Each Indian citizen, as indeed the Congress worker was a freedom fighter and as inheritors of this great legacy today, we must rise to fulfill the responsibility of preserving and fighting for the values that this rich legacy bequeathed us with."

Paying tributes to farmers, labourers, tradesmen, scientists, teachers and thinkers who contributed in the great task of nation building, the Congress chief particularly underlined the selfless service of the armed forces.
