He also called for a 10-year moratorium on caste and communal violence.
Less than three months after taking over as Prime Minister, Modi unveiled a roadmap for his government, announcing a financial inclusion scheme for the poor, development of model villages by MPs and launching of a scheme for elimination of open defecation.
He asked the corporates to work with the government as part of their social responsibility to install toilets, including separate ones for girl students, in all schools by the next Independence Day.
Asserting that he was speaking not as the Prime Minister but as “prime servant”, Modi made a special mention of the services rendered by his predecessors and former governments for the country’s development.
Seeking the cooperation of all political parties and pledging to take their help, he referred to the Parliament session that concluded yesterday, saying “it was a reflection of our thinking and intention to move forward not on the basis of majority but on the basis of strong foundation of consensus.”
