PM Modi’s top quotes from the Chennai event:

1) “The government's achievements were made possible due to our work culture and vision. Earlier, infrastructure projects meant delays, now they mean delivery. The journey from delay to delivery has happened due to our work culture. We feel accountable for every rupee that our taxpayers pay.”

2)"Infrastructure connects aspirations with achievements, people with possibilities, and dreams with reality. It is the time for new hopes, new aspirations and new beginnings. Some new generation infrastructure projects will begin to serve the people from today."

3)"As far as the speed is concerned, some facts can give us the right perspective – the length of the National Highways added per year has almost doubled when compared to the pre-2014 era…Before 2014, every year, 600 route km of the rail lines were electrified; today, this rate is reaching about 4,000 route km. Until 2014, there were only 74 airports in the country, but post-2014, the number stands around 150!”

4) “The long coastline of Tamil Nadu is very significant for trade. Today, the capacity augmentation of our ports has almost doubled when compared to the pre-2014 era. The development of Tamil Nadu is of priority to us.”

5) “Tamil Nadu is home of history and heritage. It is the land of language and literature and a centre of patriotism and national consciousness. Many of the nation's leading freedom fighters were from Tamil Nadu.”
