Already you have seen the bold decisions taken, record work being done in parliament. The 100-day milestone is yet to arrive. Mind you, the first 50-75 days are generally taken to plan things and get greetings and congratulatory calls, but you all can see the intent of the government of the day... And that India means business. We have showed red card to several evil social practices in the last five years. In new India, the way in which action is being taken against corruption, nepotism, loot of people's money, terrorism, this has never happened before."- Prime Minister Narendra Modi
