PM Modi talked about the upcoming Teacher’s day on 5th September and said that 5th September is not only Teachers Day but a day of learning as well. Teachers are as important as mothers in our lives. Teachers spend their lives caring for their students.
Modi said about the ongoing violence in Kashmir valley. PM said that, I interacted with all the delegation which are related to kashmir. We have all the same opinion on the kashmir issue - Ekta aur Mamta (Unity and affection). He warned, people who are putting innocent young boys in the front to disrupt peace in Kashmir valley, one day they will have to answer to these boys. Any life lost in Kashmir, whether of a security personnel or a youth, is a loss for us as a nation.
He said, “This country is very big, full of diversities. To keep it united, it is the responsibility of all of us, as individual citizens, as a society and as a government, to strengthen our unity as much as we can, highlight it as much as we can. Only then can the nation achieve its bright future. I have confidence in the power of 125 crore people of the country.”
