"I want the youth...you are the future of this country... be bold, be strong...be tough and also be dedicated, devoted, disciplined and determined and you can fight the world.

"We need determined, dedicated, devoted boys and girls for building a new Bengal, a new India. I want to see the sons and daughters of Bengal reaching great heights.

"You have to give me your word to work for the progress of our state and country. Do you just need a job or do you want to work for the country," she asked.
