What PM Narendra Modi says


On Singapore in his Singapore Lecture on Nov 23, 2015:

"Singapore has done more than just lift a nation into the highest levels of prosperity within a generation. It has inspired this region's progress and led in its integration. And, it has made others believe that the possibility of progress is within our horizons, not an unseen and distant hope."

On India-Singapore ties on the occasion of the 52nd National Day of Singapore:

"The bilateral relations between India and Singapore are marked by traditional friendship and warmth. Our ties have grown in quality and depth in a wide range of areas including defence and security, trade and investment, education and culture. India views Singapore as a key strategic partner in the Asean region."

On Asean in the 14th Asean-India Summit:

"Our engagement with Asean is not just about a solid base of shared civilisational heritage. It is also driven by our common strategic priorities of securing our societies and bringing peace, stability and prosperity to the region. Asean is central to India's 'Act East' policy. And, our ties are a source of balance and harmony in the region."

PM Modi speaking on July 30, 2017:

"Let us pledge that by 2022, when we mark 75 years of independence, we should take the nation to greater heights of progress. Let us commit ourselves as an individual, as citizen, as a society and organisation that we would contribute for the betterment of the country."

Giving call in Parliament on the occasion of 75th anniversary of Quit India Movement on Aug 9:

"From 2017 to 2022, when India turns 75, we need to create the same spirit that existed from 1942 to 1947. Let us pledge to build an India of our dreams by 2022. Come: let us together build an India that is free from corruption, where the rights and interests of the poor are protected, where the youth gets opportunities, where there is no malnutrition, where avenues of growth are open for women, where there is no lack of education."
