'New India'

In one of the excerpts, PM Modi sought to enlighten and motive the Indian citizens by explaining how Indians are working towards a 'New India' which is focused on development. 

He said, "Friends, welfare has been the identity of us Indians. But now in the 21st century, we are excited about the development of this country, to take the country to new levels. Today, the most used word of India is 'development'. Today, India's biggest mantra is 'sabka saath sabka vikas'. Today, India's biggest policy is 'public participation'. Today, India's most popular slogan is 'sankalp se sidhi' and today, India's biggest oath is 'New India'. India is today working hard day and night to accomplish this dream of 'new India'. In this, the most precious thing is that we are not competing with anyone else, but we are our own competition. We are challenging ourselves. We are changing ourselves."
