New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his first speech in Parliament, among other things, outlined the importance of making development a mass movement and talked about taking everyone along in making India a great nation.

Following is the top five quotes from his speech.

  • If a healthy man gets diabetes then he can contract a lot of ailments and his whole body becomes diseased. Bad governance is worse than diabetes.
  • We must stop analysing the psychology behind rape. We must protect the dignity of our mothers and sisters. It does not suit us to make comments on such incidents.
  • Victory and defeat, both teach us important lessons. The period of the Pandavas and the Kauravas is over. However, people still say that Pandavas will emerge victorious. As per our thinking, the Pandavas can never be defeated.
  • Let us change the image of our country from "Scam India" to "Skilled India."
  • The support of the Opposition is important to make India better. The last year is enough to do politics. We must think of the country in the first four years. Not just the ruling party`s MPs but it is the duty of all elected MPs to work for the country.
