The Prime Minister said that for a developed India, it is necessary that every government employee helps the countrymen in realizing their dreams. There is a need to change the negative image of the system built over the past decades into a positive one.

Referring to the golden age of independence, the Prime Minister said that we have very little time and a lot to achieve. We have little time but immense potential, we have difficult goals but great courage, we aim to reach heights but we have the will to cross the skies.
