New Delhi: Urging all the parliamentarians to dedicate themselves in the task of building a New India and to discharge their duties with utmost sincerity over the next five years, President Ram Nath Kovind said that we will have to accord priority to our duties as public representatives and as citizens of the country. Only then will we be able to inspire countrymen to discharge their duties as citizens.

In his address to the joint sitting of both houses of Parliament in the historic Central Hall today, Kovind said that You should always remember the fundamental mantra of Gandhiji. Every decision of ours should be guided by its impact on the poorest and the weakest person in the society.

Congratulating the Election Commission and crores of officials and security personnel involved in holding the general elections, he said, ìYou must also remember the voter who setting aside all his work and overcoming his difficulties went to the polling station to cast his vote and discharge his responsibilities towards the nation. Your priority should be to fulfil his aspirations.î

In his customary address after the formation of the 17th Lok Sabha, the President added, ìToday, all of us are again at a juncture of creating history. We are striving to launch a new movement for ushering in a new era. Our resolve today will determine the shape of India of 2047 when we celebrate the centenary of our independence. Our country is enriched with the experiences of a 72-year journey since independence. The nation is moving ahead only by learning from these experiences. All of us have to move ahead with the resolve to realise the idea of New India by the year 2022 when we celebrate the 75th anniversary of India’s independence.î
