Full Texts of PM’s speech in Varanasi, laying the foundation stone of Urja Ganga Project, PNG Pipeline & Doubling Varanasi-Allahabad Rail Track

मैं सबसे पहले काशी वासियों का आभार व्यक्त करना चाहता हूं, उनका धन्यवाद करना चाहता हूं। जब मैंने टीवी पर देखा, अखबारों में पढ़ा, कुछ यहां के स्थानीय नागरिकों ने मुझे फोन करके बताया कि हम काशी वालों ने छोटी दिवाली मना ली। 29 सितंबर को जब देश की सेना ने पराक्रम किया तो पूरा काशी झूम उठा। काशी वासियों ने देश के सुरक्षा बलों का जो गौरव गान किया, मां गंगा की आरती को जिस प्रकार से समर्पित किया, यहां का सांसद होने के नाते आपके द्वारा सेना का इतना सम्मान हो, गौरव हो तो मेरी खुशियों का कोई पार नहीं रहता।

ये आपने जो छोटी दिवाली मनाई थी उसके लिए मैं आपका ह्रदय से आभार व्यक्त करता हूं। कई वर्षों के बाद सवा सौ करोड़ देश वासी सेना के जवानों को अहसास करवाने में सफल हुए हैं कि आप अकेले नहीं हैं, सवा सौ करोड़ का देश आपके पीछे खड़ा है। अब हम बड़ी दिवाली मनाने जा रहे हैं। हम तो अपने परिवार के साथ दिवाली मनाएंगे, अपनों के बीच खुशियां बांटेंगे, दीये जलाएंगे, अंधेरा हटाएंगे, रोशनी लाएंगे, सब कुछ करेंगे, लेकिन ये तब संभव होता है जब किसी मां का लाल सीमा पर तैनात होकर के हम लोगों के सुख चैन के लिए अपने आप को खपा देता है।
