Addressing a conference of agriculture ministers at the venue, PM Modi said, “Don’t let me become delicate like a flower. I have lived among the thorns, I will continue to live among the thorns… But there cannot be any bigger privilege if my life can be useful in wiping the tears of a sad person with the delicacy of a flower…”
