Talking about the controversial demonetisation decision, PM Modi said "Black money and corruption has looted the middle class and deprived poor of their rights. I want to give poor their rights. I am doing everything possible to ensure the middle class is not exploited and the poor get their due. I fall short of words in conveying my thanks to people as they stood with me even when they had to face hardships."
"Your mobile phone can be turned into your bank and wallet; today’s tech can help you use it for purchasing things, making payments," PM Modi suggested, as a solution to the cash crunch.

PM Modi emphasised his concern for far farmers, saying "for me, elections do not matter. I am more concerned about the welfare of the farmers. Government will do everything to give enough water to our farmers. The fields of our farmers must have adequate water."
"Water that belongs to India cannot be allowed to go to Pakistan. My farmers have the right over the water that flows through Indus, will strive to get that water back. Water that India has rights over flows to Pakistan due to the Indus Water Treaty. Each drop will be brought back for Punjab, J&K and India's farmers. Have formed task force to see what can be done to make maximum use of water that flows to Pak through the Indus Water Treaty which is India's right," added PM Modi.

Want to speak to people of Pak once again; they must talk to their rulers; must decide if they want to fight against India then let's wage a fight against corruption, against black money, poverty."
To be completed in two years, the 750-bed hospital and institute will be built at a cost of Rs 925 crore and will be spread over 200 acres.
