Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said Pakistan must walk away from terror if it wanted to walk with India. He was addressing the second Raisina Dialogue here. 

Modi said the people spoke in one voice to mandate my government to bring change.

“Reform would not be enough until it transforms our society. Our economic growth, the welfare of the farmers, and security of our nation...all of them are deeply impacted by the developments of the world but the reverse is also true.

“The world needs India’s rise also. The world is going through profound changes. Physical borders may be less relevant in this age.                       

“Globalisation gains are at risk and economic gains are not easy to come by. Non-state actors are significant actors to the spread of challenges.                       

“Sabka saath, sabka vikas not just for India but the whole world.  In the last two-and-half-years we have partnered with almost all neighbours.”                       

The Prime Minister recounted how he had invited all leaders to his swearing-in.

“My vision for our neighbourhood led me to invite leaders of all SAARC countries, including Pakistan, for my swearing-in.

“Next week I will host the Crown Prince of Abu Dabhi. In our relationship with China we have sought to tap the vast economic aspect. It is not unnatural for two large neighbours to have differences,” Modi said.
