New Delhi: External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Friday said the new Parliament building is a symbol of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s firm commitment towards national development.
Jaishankar said this while interacting with citizens, including doctors, government employees, members of social organisations and youngsters, as part of the “Sampark se Samarthan” campaign of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the New Delhi area.
Addressing a gathering of Delhi University (DU) students, he said youngsters have to contribute significantly in India’s progress story, they will have to participate in the country’s economic development and cooperate in bringing a clean change in politics.
The nationwide campaign has been launched by the BJP with the aim of creating mass awareness about the achievements of the Narendra Modi government in the last nine years.
Mentioning the newly-built Parliament House building and the redeveloped Pragati Maidan, Jaishankar said both are “symbols of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s firm commitment for national development”.
The external affairs minister discussed the government’s achievements with eminent personalities of New Delhi at a meet organised by renowned heart surgeon Viveka Kumar at Sarvodaya Enclave.
