PM Modi also talked about the three sins that have stopped the country from realizing its true potential. Talking about these three problems, he said, "It is the commitment of my life to keep fighting against corruption. Second, dynasty politics has ruined the country. It has taken away the rights of people. And the third evil is appeasement which has left a blot on the national character. We have to fight against these three evils with full force - corruption, dynasty politics and appeasement," 

Prime Minister Modi also noted during his speech that the decisions taken today will affect the future of the country for the next 1000 years.

“I am talking about the last 1000 years because I see that there is opportunity before the country once again. What we do in this era, the steps we take, and the decisions we take one after the other will decide the direction, future of the country in the coming 1000 years," PM Modi said.

"Today, we have demography, democracy and diversity - these three together have the ability to realise the dreams of the nation. The trinity of demography, democracy and diversity has the power to realise the dreams of the nation," he added.A
