Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday expressed disappointment over the fact that there are people in our society who consider words like ‘Om’and ‘Cow’ regressive that will push the country backwards. Taking a jibe at such elements, PM Modi alleged that those who are bent upon destroying the nation have left no stone unturned. The prime minister also wondered how can anybody talk about the rural economy without animals? He pointed out that flora and fauna have always been significant to India’s economic concerns and there is a need to maintain a balance between nature and economic development.
