An announcement has been made through the official PMO handle on Twitter that Prime Minister Narendra Modi shall be making an address to the nation at 8 pm tonight (8 August).

This will be the prime minister’s first public address since the central government’s move to do away with article 370 of the constitution and bifurcate Jammu & Kashmir into two union territories.

Earlier Modi was scheduled to address the nation on 7 August but that date could not be kept due to the unexpected demise of former external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj.
