Earlier, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, Rajnath Singh and other BJP leaders received the Prime Minister at the airport.

Here are some top quotes from his address:

# Dussehra festival is about victory of good over evil.

# Vijay Dashami symbolises the victory of truth.

# We burn Ravan every year, what does it teach us? Every time we do that, we should promise to kill the Ravan within ourselves and the society.

# Terrorism is the enemy of humanity.

# Ramayana is the witness that the first fighter against terror was Jataayu, who fought for a woman’s honor.

# So even if all of us can’t be Lord Ram, we can all try and be Jatayu, and keep terrorism at bay.

# Those who promote and help terror, we will not spare them.

# Those who destroy our world are ‘modern day Raavan’

# So when we burn Ravana, we should remember that humanity can’t be saved lest we fight terrorism together.

# If you think that we are free from terrorism, then you are wrong. It is a virus affecting our society.

# Filth, poverty and illiteracy are another form of Ravana, so lets burn them as well this year.

# Today we are celebrating Vijaydashami, and the world is celebrating International Day of the Girl Child.

# Women need to be respected and treated right, no matter what religion or background one comes from.

            Truly agree and respect your thought of respecting woman... but Sir... mutual respect should be there ... woman are not sparing men by taking false advantages of laws made for them.

                          Modi's speech has confused and baffled his political opponents especially "khooni" Rahul and his friends..

                            Why? What is your problem about that? He does not live her. Yet she is duly taken care of. Why dont you write about his treatment for his mother?

                              Respecting women is in our culture but due to some insane people the entire community suffers. SAARC summit to be made successful by INDIA and things will fall in place aut0matically. All the five INDIA Afghanistan Bangladesh Baluchistan Bhutan will come. Galag milo......Larhai mein kiya Rakha hai. There will be a world of a change in development by ending this fight exchanging view on trade technology and education plus infrastructure. Strategic changes will really go leaps and bounds. I really foresee this actually happening.
