PM Modi stressed that "it is the duty of every countryman to make a special contribution to the development of the nation at their own level". He noted that India has also worked on different dimensions in the last eight years. The public participation that increased in the country during this period has given impetus to the development of the country and empowered the poorest of the country's citizens.

He remarked that Swachh Bharat Abhiyan gave an opportunity to the poor to live with dignity. Facilities like pucca houses, electricity, gas, water and free treatment increased the dignity of the poor and improved facilities. The scheme of free rations during the COVID period freed more than 80 crore countrymen from the fear of hunger.
"We are witnessing a new confidence among the citizens to come out of the mentality of deprivation and dream big," he said.
