Here are top quotes by PM Modi:-
- "I was born in a very small house, there were no windows. When my mother used to cook food on firewood, sometimes there used to be such thick smoke that we wouldn't be able to see our mother as she served food. This is why I can completely understand the pain of mothers and their children."
- "Nation's labourer No. 1 extends his greetings to all the labourers in the country for their tremendous hard work."
- "There was a time when people used to say, 'labourers of world, unite. Now, we need to say, 'labourers, unite the world'. A shramik's sweat has power to unite world. Our mantra in today's world should be 'labourers, unite the world'."
- "This is a government for the poor. Whatever we will do will be for the poor. We have worked a lot on labour related issues."
- "This land of Ballia gave us Mangal Pandey. People from here give their lives to the nation."
