Prime Minister Modi said that Indian democracy has become stronger and firmer in the last 8 years. He met expatriate Indians as part of a two-day visit to Japan. Addressing the gathering, he elaborated on India’s relations with Japan and aspects like technology, spirituality, and administrative cooperation. He said that the two countries are natural partners.
Modi said Japanese investment had played an important role in India’s development journey. He said India is celebrating 75 years of independence and the country was working hard to reach new heights in the next 25 years. He commented that this ‘Azadi Ka Amrit’ is going to write a history of India’s prosperity and success.
“I know the resolutions we have taken are very big. But I am sure they will be fulfilled with the enthusiasm and confidence that is seen in 130 crore Indians today,” Modi said. Describing the inspirations and teachings of his life, he said, “Mujhe Makhan par laker karne me Maja Nahi Aata Hain, main Pattar Par laker Karta hoon.” That is to say that “he prefers successes that are achieved through hard work to successes that come easily. Modi explained that his priority would be on accomplishing the impossible things and doing better than the best.”
The hall was filled with applause for Modi’s words. The expatriate Indians continued to do so for a while. The Prime Minister further explained the issues encountered during the Corona crisis. He said the banking system was running non-stop even during the most difficult times during the epidemic. He said the digital revolution had made it possible and that India would achieve more in the coming years.
