The leading Indian publication house Pentagon Press, which throws light on the country’s issues, has launched the book ‘Modi 2.0 A Resolve to Secure India’ at the right time, when the debate on the current government’s national security policies is in full swing. Voices are being raised in favor and against it in domestic and international political forums.

At the launch of the book, Shri B.L. Santosh, National General Secretary-Organisation, BJP said, “Today is a very special day for all of us. The contribution of the editors and authors of the book makes it even more special. In the new era, the sense of assurance was getting lost somewhere, during these 7 years under the leadership of our leader, the spirit of assurance has returned again in the system. The potential which was not realized in 70-75 years has been utilized in 7 years’.
Today I remember the words of my honorable Prime Minister – I do not know what I can achieve or give in the next 5 years, because to achieve achievements, cooperation and support of many people is needed, But I assure you that I will work in such a manner that none of you will have to bow down to seek votes next time. He has made us proud.
