Delivering the concluding speech at the BJP’s two-day national executive meeting, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday called for taking a “long jump” towards building a new India by 2022 as he insisted on socio-economic transformation dominating the national discourse.
Reaffirming his commitment to development, Modi stressed on ‘P2 G2’ (pro-people, proactive good governance) agenda for the BJP and its governments. “Our aim should not be change of government but transformation of society,” the PM said. He called for making India a happy and prosperous nation and a leading country by 2022 for which the pace of progress needed to be quickened.
“It’s time for taking a long jump towards building a new India and rewrite history. We have done a lot of work but it is not adequate. We have to awaken our ‘purusharth’ (efforts) and work in mission mode,” he said.
“Today, our responsibility is also bring about a positive change in the country’s politics,” BJP president Amit Shah said in his speech.
