Deeply moved by the girl’s response, PM Modi took a long pause and told her that it was her determination and strength that would lead to her success in life.

The Prime Minister asked the man, Ayub Patel, if he was providing education to his daughters. The man, who was speaking into a microphone, said that all three of his daughters were in school and two of them were even getting government scholarships. He said the eldest daughter who is in class 12 wanted to become a doctor.

When PM Modi directly asked her the reason to choose the medical profession as a career, she said, "I want to become a doctor because of the problem that my father is suffering from". While narrating his ordeal, Mr Ayub told the PM that his vision was low after an adverse reaction from some eyedrop he had taken while working in Saudi Arabia. The moment became an emotional roller coaster with the girl also breaking into tears.

PM aims at 100% coverage for welfare schemes

The Prime Minister announced at the function that he aims to ensure 100 per cent coverage of beneficiaries under government welfare schemes and said achieving this saturation is his dream.

The Prime Minister explained that saturation leaves no space for appeasement politics. "My dream is saturation. We should move towards 100 per cent coverage. Government machinery should get used to this and a belief should be generated among the citizens," he said while virtually addressing the 'Utkarsh Samaroh' at Bharuch in Gujarat.

"The country has made this resolve to cover 100 per cent of the beneficiaries. When there is 100 per cent coverage of schemes, the politics of appeasement comes to an end. There remains no space for it," PM Modi explained.

The Prime Minister recalled his life spent with the people of Gujarat and said that it was due to his experience in the state that he was able to work for the country as a member of the family.
