PM Modi urges people to defeat the Ravana existing in the form of corruption, illiteracy and poverty

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today addressed the gathering at the Dussehra Mahotsav, Aishbagh Ramleela Ground, Lucknow.

Greetings the people on Vijaya Dashami, the Prime Minister said he is fortunate to be a part of this ancient Ramleela.

He described Ramleela as the festival of victory of truth over falsehood; and of defeating the oppressor. He said that as we burn Ravana every year, we should all resolve to remove the ills from ourselves, our social structures and our nation. He asked the people to resolve to end ten shortcomings within themselves, each Dussehra. He emphasized that all of us have the strength to try and end these evils, and make this nation great.

Describing terrorism as the enemy of humanity, the Prime Minister said that Shri Ram represents the best of humanity, and is an epitome of sacrifice and dedication.
The Prime Minister said that it was Jatayu - a character in the Ramayana - who fought terrorism first. Jatayu gives us the message of fearlessness, the Prime Minister said, exhorting 125 crore Indians to be Jatayu in the face of terrorism. He said if everyone is alert, terrorists will find it very difficult to succeed.

The Prime Minister said that the forces of humanity across the world must now unite against terrorism. He added that even those who provide sanctuary to terrorists must now not be spared.

The Prime Minister said that today is also the International Day of the Girl Child. Speaking out strongly against female foeticide, he said this evil should also be exterminated.
The Prime Minister said that the path of our country is the path of Buddha. We balance between the Mohan of the Sudarshan Chakra, and the Mohan of the Charkha, the Prime Minister added.
