Modi put out the statistics related to various sectors to show comparisons between 2014 and now.

Sath hai, vishwas hai, ho raha vikas hai (There is cooperation, there is confidence and progress is being made), the prime minister tweeted.

Along with the tweets, he posted graphics related to various sectors like agriculture, mobile banking, tele- density, women empowerment, Make-in-India, tourism, electrification, solar energy and distribution of LED bulbs.

Referring to Make-in-India, the graphic said that there has been a giant boost to investments in electronic manufacturing. According to the graphic, the investments in this sector have jumped to Rs 1,43,000 crore from Rs 11,198 crore in 2013 -14. Under the title Digital India for Developed India, the graphic says that optical fibre broadband network has increased to 2,05,404 kms from 358 kms in 2013-14. In the tourism sector, the graphic says India has seen rapid strides. According to the graphic, the WEF's travel and tourism ranking of India has moved from 65th position in 2014 to 40. In the field of solar power, it said India has taken a giant leap in generation.

The solar power installed capacity now stands at 12277 mw against 2621 mw in March 2014. Inviting the public to participate in a survey, the Prime Minister put two questions -- What do you feel about the Govt? Where have we done well & where can we do even better. The Prime Minister today also laid the foundation stone of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Guwahati to be set up at Changsari in Assam's Kamrup district. Modi laid the foundation by pressing the remote button at the Sarusajai Stadium here this evening but did not speak on the occasion. Among others present at the function were Governor Banwarilal Purohit, chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal and health minister Himanta Biswa Sarmah.
Guwahati AIIMS will be constructed under the Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana at an estimated cost of Rs 1,123 crore.

However, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi today attacked the NDA government on its third anniversary, saying that it had "failed to deliver", and had, instead, "divided and distracted" the people. Rahul also stressed that "anger and hatred" were no solutions to the problems that the people faced. "When they fail to deliver they divide and distract. But anger and hatred will not convert into jobs or solutions," he tweeted.
