Praising Surat, he said the city has adopted the habit of cleanliness in such a way that they can be an example to other cities and added that he is proud of it.
“Labour is more valuable than money. I had said that I will also inaugurate the places where I lay foundation stones because I want to see work completed. This hospital (Kiran Multispeciality Hospital) is built on a foundation of hard work and family value,” the Prime Minister said. “I have become Prime Minister for everyone but Surat treats me like family. I cannot see the Prime Minister’s tag here,” he added.
