Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while addressing the Lok Sabha on Tuesday evening, said that the NDA government did not divert from its path of development in the first five years of its government and added that it is important that the nation continues to progress. He added that it is important to empower every citizen of the country and also to ensure that nation has modern infrastructure. "We did not divert from our development path, we did not dilute our development agenda. It is important that the country progresses, every Indian is empowered and our nation has modern infrastructure," he said.
Taking a jibe at the Opposition, the prime minister said that every Indian has contributed to the progress of the nation and not just a few. "There are some people who feel only a few names contributed to national progress. They only want to hear those few names and ignore the others. We think differently, we feel each and every citizen has worked for India's progress," he said.
PM Modi also asked the members of Lok Sabha to make it their collective endeavour to make India a five trillion dollar economy. "Promoting tourism and improving tourism infrastructure augurs well for economic prosperity. There is so much about India that the world wants to see," he said.
Talking about the path ahead, PM Modi said that the NDA government has already taken a number of pro-people decisions in its second tenure and will continue to fulfil all the promises made.
"We took office again a few weeks ago and I am happy to say we have taken numerous pro-people decisions. The decisions we have taken will benefit farmers, traders, youngsters and other sections of society. A lot of the major promises we made, we have begun fulfilling them," the prime minister added.
He further stated that there is no place for corruption in our nation and the government's fight against it will continue.
"Some members asked- why is Person A not in jail or Person B not in jail. I want to tell them- this is not the Emergency where Governments jailed people as they felt like. These decisions are taken by the Courts. Courts will decide on jail and bail," the prime minister said.
