President Pranab Mukherjee addressed the nation on the eve of Republic Day tomorrow. The President paid rich tributes to the jawans for their immense contribution towards safety and security of the nation, paying with lives sometimes. Recognising that there was economy growth, despite global challenges, in the fiscal year 2016-2017, the President said that public policy should be based on people's welfare and happiness. The quest for happiness should be based on economic, non-economic factors as well as social intuition and environmental sustainability, he added.
