What Modi said when a student asked about him becoming PM

Gandhinagar, Sept 5: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday interacted with students along with state Governor Kamla Beniwal on the occasion of Teacher's Day.

When a Class X boy asked whether Modi would return to address students as the prime minister in the future, the latter said that one shouldn't dream about becoming something but doing something. He said he would continue to serve the people of Gujarat till 2017 since he has been given a mandate for five years. Modi won his third successive mandate as the chief minister in December last year.
