It may be recalled that after winning the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the election results are a foundation for a "New India", he urged people to take a pledge to build it by 2022 - three years beyond the NDA government's current tenure.
Modi had said by 2022, the 75th anniversary of Independence would be marked by a "New India".
