            An excellent speech. Although ,speech did take higher focus on terror, brought in relevant things including neighbours " shoulder to shoulder" point aptly. He is a 56 inch man( 44 is nowhere near). He is an achiever. Many would appreciate the multi pronged approach, PM is sincerely driving. Regarding GST, PM should not wait for main opposition to fall in line. PM & FM can go ahead with their Plan B,C etc
