“First of all congratulations to the countrymen for the Independence Day,” he told reporters. Every Indian has to think what is the meaning of freedom today? Does our government believe in democracy, believe in public opinion and majority? Is there freedom to speak, think, wear clothes and earn a livelihood in this country or is it curbed somewhere? “

Surjewala said, “The foundation of self-reliant India was laid by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Patel and other freedom fighters. Now when we talk of self-sufficient India, then the question has to be asked that the government which is selling the PSUs and privatizing the railways and airports will be able to secure the independence of this country? “
