Highlighting the importance of infrastructure in the development of nations, the Prime Minister said Haryana provided a good example of this. The stretch of land on both sides of National Highway-1 (which runs through Haryana) has developed well, but beyond that, one can see lack of development in the state. He said a network of roads was essential for development, in the same way as a network of veins in the body provides blood to every part of it. The Prime Minister outlined his Government`s vision of modern infrastructure development, which included world class roads, optical fibre networks, power, gas and water grids.

Referring to the four laning project of the Kaithal-Rajasthan border stretch, the foundation for which was laid today, the Prime Minister said this road would connect Haryana and Rajasthan, and spur trade and transportation links between the two states, benefiting the nation as well.

The Prime Minister said youth needed employment opportunities, and development was essential for generating employment. He said the large gathering at the function venue is proof that the people are interested and keen for development. They want to join the whole world on the path of development, he added.

The Prime Minister described himself as the Pradhan Sewak of the nation and said Haryana has a special right on him. He said his Government was committed to early completion of all central sector projects pending in the state. 

Saluting the farmers of Haryana for filling the granaries of India, the Prime Minister called for adoption of modern agricultural practices and technologies, which not only help in filling granaries, but also ensure that the farmer gets well-remunerated. (Ann ka bhandar bhi bhare, aur Kisan ki jeb bhi bhare). Referring to the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana, launched by former Prime Minister Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the Prime Minister said his Government would ensure irrigation for the farmers through the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana.

“Music is a medium that makes us aware of our worldly duties and it also helps us transcend worldly attachments”
“Experience of Yoga Day has indicated that the world has benefited from Indian heritage and Indian music also has the capacity to stir the depth of the human mind”
“Every person in the world is entitled to know about, learn and get benefits of Indian music. It is our responsibility to take care of that”
“In today's era when technology’s influence is all pervasive, there should be technology and IT revolution in the field of music also”
“Today we are regenerating our centers of art and culture like Kashi”

The Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi paid rich tribute to Pandit Jasraj on the occasion of the Jayanti of the doyen of Indian Classical Music. The Prime Minister talked of the personification of immortal energy of music by Pandit Jasraj and lauded Durga Jasraj and Pandit Shaarang Dev for keeping alive the glorious legacy of the maestro. The Prime Minister was speaking at the launch of the Pandit Jasraj Cultural Foundation via video conferencing.

The Prime Minister touched upon the vast knowledge imparted by the sages of Indian music tradition. Shri Modi said that the strength to feel the cosmic energy and ability to see music in the flow of universe is what makes Indian Classical music tradition so exceptional. “Music is a medium that makes us aware of our worldly duties and it also helps us transcend worldly attachments” the Prime Minister said.

The Prime Minister praised Pandit Jasraj Cultural Foundation for their goal of preserving India’s rich heritage of art and culture. He asked the Foundation to focus on two key aspects of this age of technology. Firstly, he said that Indian Music should create its identity in this age of globalisation. He said that the experience of Yoga Day has indicated that the world has benefited from Indian heritage and Indian music also has the capacity to stir the depth of the human mind. “Every person in the world is entitled to know about, learn and get benefits of Indian music. It is our responsibility to take care of that”, he said.

Secondly, the Prime Minister said that in today's era when technology’s influence is all pervasive, there should be technology and IT revolution in the field of music also. He called for startups dedicated solely to music, based on Indian instruments and traditions.

He also dwelled on recent efforts to regenerate the centres of culture and art like Kashi. The Prime Minister said that India has shown the way to a secured future to the world through its faith in environment preservation and love for nature. “In this Indian journey of development along with heritage, ‘Sabka Prayas’ should be included”, he concluded.
