Life is never free of contradictions.
I can assure you we are a responsible nuclear power.
India happens to be a rich country inhabited by very poor people.
It is a struggle for the minds of the people... No cause justifies recourse to terrorism.
Unity and secularism will be the motto of the government. We can't afford divisive polity in India.
Nobody should be allowed to tinker with democracy. We will not discontinue the good works of the past government.
We are a coalition government, and that limits our options in some ways. Privatization happens to be one such area.
Together with international unity and resolve we can meet the challenge of this global scourge and work to bring about an international law of zero tolerance for terrorism.
My top most priority is to deal with India's massive social and economic problems, so that chronic poverty, ignorance and disease can be conquered in a reasonably short period of time.
