Anthony Albanese: India is a remarkable, vibrant and diverse country

India stands tall as the world’s biggest democracy

Leader of the Opposition


Coming just two years after the end of World War II, India’s independence was a beacon of light after a period of profound darkness. It was a “tryst with destiny”, as Prime Minister Nehru so famously called it. And as the clock struck midnight, a great nation rose to its feet and embraced that destiny: a destiny of life, freedom, power and the responsibility that comes with it.

Seventy-three years later, India still stands tall as the world’s biggest democracy and as a remarkable, vibrant and diverse country. In this pandemic-afflicted year, the celebrations of this momentous anniversary will obviously be of a different nature.

But even though the circumstances are different, the sentiments are the same. As leader of the Australian Labor Party, I take great pleasure in wishing you a proud and joyous Independence Day.

Yours sincerely,

Anthony Albanese MP

Federal Member for Grayndler
