"India alone cannot walk the path of peace. It also has to be Pakistan’s journey to make," PM Modi said in his address.

"Pakistan must walk away from terror if it wants to walk towards dialogue with India," he added.

The Prime Minister also talked about his dream of a thriving well-integrated neighbourhood. "The people of South Asia are joined by blood, shared history, culture, and aspirations."

"It is not unnatural for two large (India and China) neighbouring powers to have some differences," said PM Modi.

PM Modi also told the present nations that reforms alone were not enough unless they transformed the economy and society.

"In 2014, the people of India ushered in a new normal. Speaking in one voice, they entrusted my government with the mandate to change. Change not just of attitudes but of mindset, change of state from depth to purposeful action, change to take bold decisions," he said. 

"The mandate in which reform would not be enough unless it transforms our economy and society," said Modi. 

"Every day at work, my 'to-do' list is guided by the constant drive to reform and transform India for prosperity and security of all Indians," he said.
