The difference between NDA lead by Modi and UPA lead by Sonia is Modi gives importance to the martyrs of nation and Sonia mafia gives importance to the family loyalists, and feels army is expendable.

Mahabarta was a myth and Modi kanjr is a coward who swallowed down shooting down of two IAF jets by a small country Pakistan, capture of a Hindu pilot.

Kudos & Salutations to PM Modi Ji. Such gestures contribute to enhancing the morale of the armed forces in a big way. Undeniably, the contribution and sacrifices of our armed forces is immeasurable and for the PM to acknowledge this and pay homage to the martyrs of Hindustan is highly appreciable.

Do you think during the last 70 years, Modi was ruling on India. ?
We live peacefully only cause of our soldiers, and they deswrve respect.
We should respect them and tribute them. Modi ji did this very great fully. I personally respect it.
This term was possible just because of the recent attacks. So he has to go and pay tribute to them. If no Balkot, no Modi.
Hope that the new government will also address the farmers'' distress who produce food for the survival of our nation.

Why is it that a farmers memorial is not built in this nation , why is it that no PM has come forward to give respect and importance to the farmers of this nation who have toiled hard for the food security of our nation. and have had to lay down their lives in larger numbers than the security forces, due to the wrong policy discussions of the governments since independence
