Work as a team to develop India: Narendra Modi

New Delhi: Narendra Modi has called for accelerated efforts in order to rid the country of corruption, poverty, illiteracy and malnutrition.

Prime Minister wants MPs to rise above political differences and work as a team to develop an India of the dreams of freedom fighters in the coming years.

Narendra Modi also recalled the role played by the likes of Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Chandrashekhar Azad, Sukhdev, Jayaprakash Narayan and others but there was no mention of Jawaharlal Nehru.

On the other side of the coin, Sonia Gandhi recalled the freedom fighters sacrifices and in the meantime criticizing NDA government over its economic policies.
