"In this 'Amrit kaal' of independence, the country is setting goals for the next 25 years. This is the time for BJP, to set the target for the next 25 years along with consistently working for the people of India to fulfil their aspirations along with wading through all the challenges," said PM Narendra Modi virtually while addressing BJP national office-bearers meeting at Jaipur.

The Prime Minister said he could see the country's bright future amid the rising aspirations of people. "Beyond political profit and loss, I see it as a big positive change. India is seen as a country filled with aspirations. Now, every citizen of India wants to see the work getting done along with witnessing the final outcome. In this backdrop, the responsibility of governments increases tremendously," he added.
