  • Every Indian should now forget that he is a Rajput, a Sikh or a Jat. He must remember that he is an Indian and he has every right in his country but with certain duties.
  • Faith is of no evil in absence of strength. Faith and strength, both are essential to accomplish any great work.
  • My only desire is that India should be a good producer and no one should be hungry, shedding tears for food in the country.
