In the five years from our 70th year of Independence to the 75th year of Independence, let’s pledge to work together to bring this change.
PM Modi: We will create an India where the poor owns a house and has access to electricity and water. An India, where the farmer sleeps in peace and grows his income two-fold by 2022. An India, where the young women get opportunities in every field. An India, which is free of terrorism, corruption, dynasty politics, communalism and casteism. And finally, an India which is clean and healthy. Let’s move together in this path of development.
