Mumbai: For its development, India needs a movement akin to the freedom movement, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday.
"Similar to the freedom movement, we need a movement for development, where the collective aspirations propel the country's growth," Modi said, addressing the India Today Conclave here via video link.
"We all should get involved in our dream of a new India, whose mantra will be 'opportunity for all' and an India of self-respect.
"For several decades, we had embarked in wrong directions with wrong policies," Modi said.
"The decisions then were 'election-driven' or based on set notions of the officials, but this has changed now," he said.
His government is not looking (at issues facing the country) with "tunnel vision" but with "total vision," said the Prime Minister.
Referring to India Today Editor-in-Chief Aroon Purie remark describing him as the "disruptor-in-chief," the PM said, "If there is a disruptor-in-chief, it is not Modi but the people of India who are entitled to this moniker."
