Will leave no stone unturned in fulfilling nation’s dream: PM-elect Modi

After being unanimously elected as the leader of the BJP Parliamentary Party on Tuesday, Narendra Modi said the election result was a vote for ‘new hope and aspiration’ and he would leave no stone unturned in fulfilling the nation’s dream.
Addressing the newly-elected MPs of the party in the historic Central Hall of Parliament, Modi said the recent election result had increased people’s faith in democracy and there is a “new hope” among people that this dispensation can fulfill their aspirations.

In his 30-minute acceptance speech, 63-year-old Modi broke down when he referred to LK Advani’s mention that he had done a favour to the party by taking up the responsibility.
Modi said, “Advaniji ne ek shabd kahaa aur maine Advanji se prathnaa karonga ki woh iss shabd kaa istmaal naa kare. Unhone kahaa ki Narendra bhai ne kripa ki. Kyaa maa ki seva kabhi kripa ho sakti hai? Katai nahin ho sakti hai. Jaise bharat meri maa hai waise hi BJP bhi meri maa hai. Aur isliay beta kabhi maa per kripa nahin karta sirf samarpit bhav se maa ki sewa karta hai.”
(Advaniji said that I have done a favour to BJP. Like India, BJP is also my mother. Can serving the mother be a favour? Not at all. A son is only dedicated to serve the mother.)

Modi remembered the journey of BJP and contribution of its leaders like Atal Bihari Vajpayee in building the party and the nation.
Committing his Government to all sections of the society, particularly the youth, women and poor, Modi said, “I want to assure the people of the country that there is no need for pessimism going by the past bad experience…I am a very optimistic man and only an optimistic man can bring optimism in the country.”
“I will try to live up to expectations of people,” he said and promised to present report card to people in 2019.
“A new hope has arisen in the common man. This is the biggest significance of this election results. At the end of the day for whom is the Government? It is for the poor. The new Government will dedicate itself for the poor, crores and crores of youth and for the safety and security of the mothers and sisters, those in the rural areas, oppressed and the deprived,” he said.
Referring to the nature of the verdict, he said if it had been a hung or a fractured verdict then one can say that people had vented their anger against the Government and that it was anti-establishment.
“But by giving BJP an absolute majority they have voted for hope and trust. People have voted for hope and faith. I will do everything to fulfil their aspirations,” he said.
Modi said there should be no room for pessimism and because with pessimism nothing can be achieved.
Recollecting an earlier speech of his, Modi said his Government’s motto will be with everyone and for everyone’s development. “This is the time for new hope and strength.”
Modi said in 2019 he will meet the MPs again with a report card. “My Government is not for myself but for the country. The Government is for the poor and we want to do something for them, he said.
“I will strive my best to fulfil the responsibility you have reposed in me. You will never have to look down on the work it will do,” he said.
The PM-elect also took the opportunity to praise the work of the past Governments, saying every Government and its leaders have contributed to the welfare of the country and said his Government will carry forward whatever good they have done.
