Earlier, India was the world's largest importer i.e. India was the buyer of goods from the world, but today under the leadership of Modi Ji, today we are the world's largest exporter, standing in the line of 25 countries of the world."

To protect Our National Flag every Indian is ready to go to any extent. I want to say that everyone should maintain mutual harmony, maintain the relationship of brotherhood, some forces are involved in breaking it, whatever happened in Udaipur, it was shocking that people of all kinds of religions should come and oppose such acts, we should follow the example that Durgadas Rathore has set in his life."
