PM said, "Impatience is not a bad thing".

This week Modi revealed that before making the news of the "surgical strikes" public, India had repeatedly attempted to contact Pakistan government to inform them about the operation. He also underlined the support, during an interaction with the party's MPs, MLAs and other representatives through his mobile application, the BJP had received from backward sections of the society. "The perception about the BJP that it was a party of a particular class and urban centres or north India has changed and it has emerged as an "all-touching and all-inclusive" organisation", the PM said. "The Indian government is increasingly sounding like a broken record", it said.

Speaking on agriculture, he said many farmers were unaware of a number of agricultural facts and schemes and that there was a need to organise campaigns to educate them.
