Says followed ‘Sabka-Saath, Sabka-Vikas, Sabka-Vishwas’
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday, during his monthly radio broadcast – ‘Mann Ki Baat’, claimed that his government followed mantra ‘Sabka-Saath, Sabka-Vikas, Sabka-Vishwas’ (everyone’s cooperation, development, trust) as the BJP-led NDA government completed seven years in office at the Centre.
“My dear countrymen, today on 30th May we are having ‘Mann Ki Baat’ and incidentally, it also marks the completion of 7 years of the government. Over these years, the country has followed the mantra of ‘Sabka-Saath, Sabka-Vikas, Sabka-Vishwas’,” Modi said in Hindi.
On the achievements of the seven years of his government, Modi said, ‘Whatever we have accomplished in these 7 years, it has been of the country, of the countrymen. Together, we have experienced many moments of national pride in these years.”
“When we observe that now India moves ahead not with the thought and pressure of other countries but with her own conviction, then we all feel proud,” he said.
“When we witness that now India gives a befitting reply to those who conspire against us, then our confidence soars. When India does not compromise on the issues of national security, when the strength of our armed forces increases, we feel that yes, we are on the right path,” he said.
Modi said in the seven decades after independence, only three and a half crore rural homes of the country had water connections.
However, just in the last 21 months, four and a half crore houses have been given clean water connections, he said. ‘Of these, 15 months were of the Corona period!’, the Prime Minister said.
In these seven years, many old contestations of the country have also been resolved with complete peace and harmony, he said.
New confidence of peace and development has arisen from the northeast to Kashmir, the Prime Minister said.
“Friends, have you thought all such work which could not be achieved even in decades, how were they done in these 7 years? All this was possible because in these 7 years, more than as the Government or as the people, we worked together as one country. We worked as a team. We worked as Team India,” he said.
“In these 7 years together, we have overcome many difficult tests as well, and each time we have all emerged stronger. In the form of the Corona pandemic, we are being continuously put to test. This is a crisis that has plagued the whole world, so many people have lost their loved ones. Even big countries were not spared from its devastation,” the Prime Minister said.
He said in the midst of this pandemic, India is moving forward with the resolve of – ‘service and cooperation’.
‘In the first wave, we fought courageously; this time too India will be victorious in the ongoing fight against the virus. Be it social distancing, rules related to masks or vaccines, there should be no letup in our efforts,’ the Prime Minister said. (UNI)
