Results 2019: We Are Now Building A New India, Says PM Modi
There was a time when some political parties kept slogans like "let secular forces unite, let secularism stand as one".... But between 2014 and 2019, their reality was unveiled and this time no one mustered the courage to try and spread lies under the garb of secularism... they stood exposed... After 5 years of our governance... the opposition could not find a single issue to blame us... no corruption, no real issues to blame us... that tells a story. We are now building a new India and the first thing to end in this New India will be this caste system that holds us back and divides us... from here on there will only be 2 castes.... 1 caste is 'Poor' and the other caste is of those who will contribute in every smallest way possible to help those who need to be brought out of poverty. If we can bring the same spirit that Indians had while struggling for freedom, towards doing our bit for a new India, then we would create a prosperous India... 'Swatantra Bharat se Samruddh Bharat' banana hai. I appeal to you all that even with such a tremendous verdict, such an immense victory, we must take every step with humility.
