During his third term in office, Modi also pledged that India will become the third largest economic force internationally.

Here are the top quotes from PM Modi’s speech in the Parliament:

  • “This 75th Republic Day, the New Parliament, Sengol – all this was very impressive. We will always remember this.”
  • “When the President came to this new Parliament building to address all of us and the pride and honour with which Sengol led the entire procession – we were walking behind it. When we become a witness to the reflection of that holy moment of India’s independence in this new tradition in the new Parliament building, the honour of democracy rises.”
  • “I see that many of you (Opposition) have even lost the courage to contest elections. Some seats were changed last time too, I have heard that many people are looking to change their seats this time as well. I have also heard that many people now want to go to Rajya Sabha instead of Lok Sabha. They are looking for their paths by assessing the situation.”
  • “Congress’ shop on verge of closure in its attempt to launch the same product again and again. Congress is trapped in ‘cancel culture’, it seeks to cancel every achievement and success of country.”
  • “Nehru ji had said from Red Fort that Indians don’t have a habit of working hard. He said that we Indians don’t work as hard as those in Europe, Japan, China, Russia and US. Nehru ji thought that Indians are lazy.”
  • “On the basis of the experience of 10 years of governance, looking at today’s strong economy and the rapid speed with which India is progressing today, I can confidently say that in our third term, India will be the third largest economic power. This is Modi’s guarantee”.
  • “We built 4 crore houses for the poor. For the urban poor, we built 80 lakh pucca houses. Had these been built at the speed of Congress…it would have taken 100 years to do this work. Five generations would have passed by then.”
  • “The third term of our government is not very far now. Only 100-125 days remain to go. I don’t go into numbers but I can see the mood of the country. It will make the NDA cross 400 and BJP will definitely get 370 seats.”
  • “The country is experiencing security and peace. Compared to the last 10 years, the country has indeed become empowered in the area of security. Terrorism and naxalism are now restricted to a small circle. But India’s policy of zero tolerance towards terrorism is now compelling the entire world to walk towards this policy.”
  • “Employment opportunities that are available for youth today were not there earlier.”
  • “People of Kashmir, country paid heavy price for Jawaharlal Nehru’s mistakes.”
