New Delhi : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said ‘zeal to fulfill dreams of 125 crore Indians’ keeps him in a mission mode as he recalled often being asked how is he able to travel so much or whether he gets ‘jetlagged’.

Replying to a query during his first Town Hall interaction with people, Prime Minister said Indians who live in foreign countries do talk about ‘jetlag’, but he doesn’t get tired. “He (the questioner) asked me how I travel so much and then (straightaway) go to office. I have been asked this question by many people for several years ‘don’t you get tired’… 125 crore countrymen, their dreams, their conditions …I remain connected with them from heart.

“Therefore I see that whatever time I have, strength I have, I should devote to them… some people say you have so much energy so you do this much work. This is a wrong airthmetic… once you know this much work has to be done, this is my mission, energy start coming on itself,” Modi said. Modi further said that God has given equal energy to everyone.

Some people let the energy get suppressed, some make it vibrant. I don’t have anything extra…I am on a mission mode path to use that energy and it keeps increasing”. Prime Minister took nine questions during the interaction at the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium here.

On a question related to tourism, Modi said steps taken by the government has led to increase in tourism. More than 40 lakh tourists visited India in the last six months and the cleanliness drive has helped promote the cause.
