Please upload if you have any picture of leaves and habit of the plant. 
Please provide additional information about the plant that would help us to reach the correct species easily.

Yes, I agree with Giby ji. Further information will be helpful in reaching ID.

If i have to make a guess then my guess will be  " Hydrolea zeylanica", but its just a guess....

Yes I agree there should be more views of habit and leaves, even if I have to guess I would say, Hydrolea zeylanica.

I too think that the guesses made by Nidhan ji and Prashant ji is a possible id. 
Expecting more information and/or pictures for confirmation
