During his address on the banks of the River Ganga Shri Modi reiterated his commitment towards cleaning the Ganga. He said, “It is Maa Ganga who has made me yours. Not everybody gets such occasions as I have got today and that is why I say that Maa Ganga has decided that I should do a few things.” He stressed on the need to make the Ganga clean and restore the glory of the river.

He said, “Jo bina maange parose use Maa kehte hain, mujhe Banaras ki janta se maangne ka bhi saubhagye nahi mila.”

“Commenting on the Lok Sabha elections Shri Modi said that people heard about coalitions to form Governments but this time coalitions are being formed to remain the active voice of the Opposition.
