We are building a society that stands firmly on foundation of equality & social justice. We are witnessing the emergence of an India whose thinking & approach are innovative & decisions are progressive,” the prime minister said at the event.

“Today crores of Indias are putting the foundation stone of Swarnim Bharat. Our progress lies in the progress of the nation. The nation exists from us, and we exist from the nation. This realization is becoming the biggest strength of Indians in the making of a new India,” said PM Modi.

“This time of Amrit Kaal is not for dreaming while sleeping, but for fulfilling resolutions by waking up. Coming 25 years are the culmination of hard work, sacrifice & austerity. This is a period of 25 years to get back what our society has lost in hundreds of years of slavery,” PM Modi added.
