Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said his new slogan would be “Nara”, standing for “National ambition, regional aspiration”.

He vowed to end regional imbalances and said the NDA had emerged as a national movement.

Modi asked the newly elected MPs to treat even those who opposed them in the polls as their own. “Once you are elected, nobody is alien to you. You have to serve every section,” he said.

Modi also promised to take the allies along despite the BJP’s comfortable majority, saying: “Coalition politics will now be our principle. No matter how powerful one party is, we’ll have to accept coalitions.”
