All those believing in humanity must come together to beat terrorism: PM Modi in Nairobi



Nairobi: Describing terrorism as one of the two major challenges facing the world, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday night said all forces believing in humanity must come along to defeat this "anti-humanity" menace.

Addressing the Indian diaspora in Nairobi, he also stated that India was walking  in line towards monetary progress despite a global recession and his government was seeking at over 8 percent growth, up from  the existing level of 7.6 percent.

During his hour-long address amid repeated chants of 'Modi, Modi', this individual spoke number of issues, such as projects taken by his two-year old government for altering  the lives of |the general public in India and accomplish their "dreams".

Significantly, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta followed Modi to the Kasarani Stadium where he resolved the

gathering of approximated 20, 000 Indians and people of Indian origins,

soon after his arrival  from Tanzania.

Discussing the challenges facing the world, the Prime Minister discovered terrorism and global heating as both the problems.

"These are challenges to the humanity… The earth needs to come together to deal with these,  he said.

"Those believe  in humanity must come together. The sooner they come together, the faster  terrorism can be finished…

Therefore, those believing in humanity must get with each other to defeat anti-humanity causes.

We need this solve this, " he said.With regard to climatic change , Modi said India can present the way when it comes to mitigating the challenge of climate change.

Discussing about domestic issues of India, he said in the run up to 2014 Lok Sabha polls, his critics would question regarding what he would do by becoming the Prime Minister when this individual belonged to a "small state" of Gujarat.

"Several questions were raised, he said, pointing out that his critics even wondered whether he experienced any knowledge about overseas affairs.

"I have no complaints against anyone…. That (questions) was correct also. I could see Legislative house after becoming the prime minister, " Modi said.

The Prime Minister then added that during the two years of his rule, India has seen "good governance" and implementation of announcements,unlike the earlier when "decisions were taken without anybody bothering as to what happened to them".

"The last two years saw less rain fall in many regions of India, so much that we needed to run trains to ferry water… Apparently The god also wanted to test me, " he said.

"Also, the world was going through recession. Also though India saw a growth of 7.6 percent. This is an matter of pride. Yet we are not going to stop here. We need to move ahead, go higher and reach over 8 percent growth, " he said.

"We gave an push to good governance and bring a positive big difference in the lives of our citizens,

" Modi said amid repeated sloganeering like 'Bharat mata ki jai'.

Contending that India has started to change and move towards improvement, he said whatever has happened is due to work being conducted in a planned fashion.

"The country is changing because of its 125 crore people… I recognise the power of 125 crore Indians who are determined move ahead. This is the real public power, the Prime Minister said.

He spoke about his resolves like ensuring lavatories are built in govt schools and making available electricity within 1000 days  to 18, 000 villages "which have remained without power for 70 years".

He also talked about Start-Up programme and the Mudra Bank to pay for such initiatives, saying 3. 5 crore people have been given Rs 25 lakh crore as loans "without any guarantees" under the program.

"Our youth have the initiative, innovation and energy. They just needed someone in New Delhi to hand-hold them, " he said, adding under the Start-up initiative, they would not only be finding a job for themselves but would end up being offering  jobs to others too.

He told the  diaspora that details of all of the work done by his authorities could be obtained fro
