He also expressed his condolences to the families of the thirteen people who died in an Indian Air Force chopper crash in Tamil Nadu on December 8. He said, "India is mourning but despite being in pain, neither do we stop our pace nor our development. India won't stop. India won't be at a standstill. Together, we Indians will work hard and face every challenge inside and outside the country."
