Congratulating the beginning of the forty-second anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution, the President said, "Today is a very happy day for the history and the great nation of Iran and all the freedom-seekers and Muslims of the world".

"On such a day, Imam Khomeini (RA) entered the country and was greatly welcomed by millions of the Iranian nation, and with the wisdom and prudence that the late Imam had, when he entered the country, he immediately went to visit the graves of martyrs, and this is very important," he said.

Referring to the speech of Imam Khomeini (RA) at  about the free water and electricity for the oppressed, Dr Rouhani said, "For some time, some used to say, "What happened to that free water and electricity?" And today, the twelfth government is proud that thanks to the sacrifice and efforts of the officials of the Ministry of Energy and Oil, this slogan of Imam Khomeini (RA) has been realised and the low-income groups have access free water and electricity".

The President added, "It became clear that the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran is the government of the oppressed".

Referring to the inauguration of important national projects in the provinces of North Khorasan and Kurdistan, Dr Rouhani said, "Although this year was a difficult year for the people due to sanctions and COVID-19, the slogan of Surge in Production that the Supreme Leader intended was achieved, and since the beginning of the year, every week we have had important inaugurations all over the country".

Referring to the great measures taken in the water and electricity sector, the President said, "Some thought that the Islamic Revolution had only a political aspect and was for the independence of the country and the fight against the Arrogance and tyranny, while others thought that the Islamic Revolution had only spiritual aspect and was only to establish Islam, but the statistics show that the Islamic Revolution, in addition to political and spiritual issues, also attached importance to the material aspects".

Dr Rouhani pointed out, "During the life of Islamic Revolution, about 193 dams have been inaugurated, while at the victory of the revolution, there were only 19 dams. In the field of wastewater treatment plant, there were 4 wastewater treatment plants throughout the country at that time, and today we opened the seventy-seventh wastewater treatment plant. These show that everyone has contributed".
