Give priority to duty, not rights: PM

New Delhi, Jan 24 (IANS): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday stressed on giving priority to "duty" and not the "rights".

Modi's remarks came while addressing the recipients of Rashtriya Bal Puraskar, 2020. "We should give priority to our duty. How long we would give priority to our rights?

"I feel proud that you are aware of your duty for the society and the nation," the Prime Minister said.

Modi lauded the children of their excellent efforts in different fields, saying "I was surprised to see your works at such an young age".

"I get energy and inspirations from you when I hear about your brave escapades."

His statement comes amid country-wide stir over the Citizenship Amendment Act.

    What he is doing he is neither focus on his duty nor doing anything right. Ask him to first focus on his duty and do everything right.

    My duty is to be a Law abiding citizen, respect and practice equality in the way i treat my fellow citizens, pay my dues (taxes).. Duty is what i give, Rights is what iam born with as a citizen of this nation.. Guess our man needs lessons in knowing the differences.
