Here we are giving you live updates on Narendra Modi's speech:

17:06- Modi concludes his speech

16:04-Modi:India's model should be to take from all the good projects in each state of the nation

17:02-Modi:There is a lot of debate over the Gujarat model, whatever it is,atleast there is a debate on development

17:00-Modi:We dont want to move ahead only on numbers but on unity and consensus

16:59-Modi:In 2022 we will complete 75yrs of independence, can we achieve that every house has basic facilities?

16:57-Modi:If our people can unite for a cricket match,then why can't they do it for development?

16:55-Modi:We should plan from today how we will celebrate Mahatma Gandhi ji's 150th birth anniversary after 5 years

16:54-Modi:Just like Mahatma Gandhi made every Indian feel that he/she was working for freedom movement, same way now working for development should be service to the nation

16:52-Modi:Its our responsibility that we learn something from Mahatma Gandhi ji, learn his teachings

16:51-Modi:When I was young, a Muslim man used to repair my cycle,today his son doing same job.Why is this? Need to focus on their development

Only a graduation certificate is not enough. We need skills. We need to concentrate on skill development,can't we export teachers?

16:48-Modi:We have got an image of 'Scam India'and we have to change this to 'Skill India'

16:47-Modi:We are a young nation, we have to recognize this power. China on the other hand is growing older

16:46-Modi:Dignity for our women should be priority of we all.We have to stop politicizing rape cases, it doesn't suit us. We are playing with the dignity of our women.

16:45-Modi:Be it Pune murder,or UP crime cases or Mandi mishap all are very sad incidents,administration has to be strong

16:44-Modi:The faster we implement technology in agriculture the better it will be for us,there has been no research on pulses for years

16:43-Modi:We can change a lot of things with little steps

16:42-Modi:We gave soil health cards to farmers in Gujarat, can't we implement that in the rest of the country?

16:41-Modi:Sikkim is a very small state but soon it will become an organic state, world is a market for organic goods,must promote north

16:40-Modi:We should concentrate on agro-based industries-

16:38-Modi:If villages are developed and provided 24 hours power ,good education&industries then no one will leave them

16:35-Modi:We have to rid the poor of superstition and blind faith

16:32-Modi:Biggest power to fight poverty is education

16:30-Modi:We have to ensure that the poor comes out of poverty

16:28-Modi:The rich can afford best educational and medical facilities in the world, but what will the poor do?

16:25-Modi:Should the Govt be only for the educated or for few? It should be for the poor

16:22-Modi:India is known as a big and vibrant democracy in the world

16:18-Modi:After many years ppl voted for stability,development and good governance

16:16-Modi:The President's speech inspires us to work together in future and to keep our objectives in mind. As long as elections were continuing, we were candidates. But in this House, we represent the hopes of the people.

When i became Gujarat CM for the first time, questions were raised about my promise to deliver electricity in the state. But I delivered. If things have not been done yet, doubts are valid. But we will leave no stone unturned to fulfill our goals.

16:12- Modi:Several members have said that I have promised a lot; how will I deliver? This is a legitimate question.

16:10- Modi:
This House has several very experienced representatives of the people present today. When a new person like me is saying something, please forgive my inexperience.
