17th September 2020 is the birth anniversary of our respected Prime Minister, Narendra Modiji. He will be turning 70. I wish him the very best on his birthday and wish that he lives to be a hundred. I respect Modiji a lot, and even he has a lot of love for me. Whenever we meet, he meets me with the greatest affection. Modiji works tirelessly for our country and its people, He works without any self-interest. The kind of work he has done, no one else has ever done before. He has started the construction of the Ram Mandir. He has made Benares spic and span. The streetlights he has erected in the middle of the streets light up both the sides. It looks really beautiful at night. Roads have been widened, they are really clean, and every morning around 5 o’clock, sweepers are out cleaning the streets every day. Assi Ghat looks glorious, and even Mother Ganga is much cleaner than before. There are public toilets at short distances within the city – this ensures that the city is not lying dirty. I thank Modiji again and again, and wish that he continues to serve the country so wonderfully. On this Independence Day, even I turned 85, and as an elder I bless him that may he always remain in happiness and good cheer.
