Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) [India], October 14 (ANI): "When we dream of new India, we dream a dirt free, poverty-free, educated, terrorism-free and casteism-free India," said Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday.

He made these comments while addressing a crowd at the Kayasth Samagam program in Lucknow.

The Home Minister had attended the Kayastha Samagam and Yuva Samman Sammelan in Lucknow's Moti Mahal Lawn. There were other several senior leaders like Cabinet Minister Brijesh Pathak, Suresh Khanna, and Rajya Sabha MP from the BJP Om Mathur.

Earlier in the day, Rajnath said no power in the world can stop the government from resolving the Kashmir issue and hit out at Pakistan for its "impious" activities against India.

Addressing a gathering here in Surat district as part of the BJP's 'Gujarat Gaurav Yatra', he said the NDA government has given a free hand to the Indian Army to act against terrorists and give a befitting reply to any firing from across the border in Kashmir. (ANI)
