President Ram Nath Kovind today endorsed the development efforts of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government as the 17th Lok Sabha started.
The government, he said, is "moving ahead to create strong, safe, prosperous and all-inclusive India" and the people "have given a clear mandate to the government to continue the developmental journey that started in 2014".
This journey, he said is inspired by the "basic spirit of 'Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas aur Sabka Vishwas".
After assessing this performance of the Government during the first tenure, people have given even stronger support for second term.
It is our objective to make India a 5- trillion dollar economy by 2024.
