Governance ki baat | The Indian Express

In the past eight years, the Narendra Modi government has taken several exemplary steps. Caring and attentive, proactive leadership, special focus on development, understanding of the intricacies of India’s problems, talent for making the right decision at the right time are some of the qualities that make PM Modi different from others. Political leaders and their parties usually have an election-centric attitude – winning the next election is their main concern. They make populist promises that focus on short-term goals. In turn, the Modi government has taken several decisions to provide long-term benefits to the people.

Former President APJ Abdul Kalam used to remind us that no country has made progress by giving control of its destiny to a few leaders and political parties while the public does nothing more than criticize them. He used to ask why Indians travel abroad and follow the rules, but throw garbage on the roads in their country. Through the hygiene campaign, Prime Minister Modi has awakened a sense of duty in every citizen. From children to the elderly, the necessity of hygiene has entered the consciousness of all classes of people. Change is tangible in public.

The skewed gender ratio against women can create serious problems for society. Realizing that the problem is not political but social, Prime Minister Modi has announced a slew of policies and initiatives such as “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao”, #SelfieWithDaughter and the Sukanya Samriddhi scheme. This has led to an improvement in the sex ratio, improved educational outcomes, and enhanced participation of women in decision-making.

The Namami Gange Project has not only helped clean up the Ganges, but it has also changed people’s attitudes towards rivers, bodies of water and the environment across the country. Awareness of the rational use of water and efforts to conserve water is increasing. The decision to establish 75 Amrit Sarovar in each district will help solve water problems.

Food produced using chemical fertilizers and pesticides is harmful to health. The government aims to bring 20 hectares to organic farming. The decision in this year’s budget to create a 5-kilometer corridor along the banks of the Ganges for natural agriculture is among the first steps it has taken to achieve this goal.

Prime Minister Modi’s clear appeal “Na khaunga na khane doonga” reminds us of his commitment to good governance and transparency. The use of technology, electronic payments, and DBT have helped curb corruption. Government funds reach the beneficiary directly. The ambitious areas program gave a new dimension to the development initiatives in the country.

Prime Minister Modi’s call to buy Khadi has struck a chord with the people. Swadeshi and cottage industries benefited and jobs were created. While the Congress party continued to chant slogans about Khadi, it was Prime Minister Modi who made him a mass movement. Khadi’s sales amounted to only Rs 66.81 thousand in 2014. However, in just one day on 13 November 2020, Khadi’s sales reached Rs 1.11 crore.

Before this government took office, the Padma Awards were often controversial. But today, a person’s work and not their identity is the only criterion for the award. Today awards are given to farmers and people from small towns and villages, most of whom are unsung heroes.

PM Modi ended the “VIP culture” by banning the use of the red beacon. He believes that public representatives must follow the same rules that citizens are expected to follow. By traveling on a metro train himself, he gave the message that public representatives must have a sense of service. The Prime Minister constantly requires representatives to adhere to the standards of society and to be accountable to the people.

Efforts were made to strengthen democracy while weakening dynastic politics. Empowering a new generation of young people strengthens Prime Minister Modi’s determination to create the new India. Prime Minister Man Ki Pat became a positive mediator. He talks about positive initiatives, reaffirms the importance of festivals and tries to instill respect for the greats. Ik Bharat Shreshta Bharat’s soul awakened. The unity of the country was strengthened by the abolition of Articles 370 and 35a.

In several of his speeches, Prime Minister Modi spoke of the Sanatan culture that seeks the welfare of all, and emphasized the spirit of Vasudeva Kutumbakkam. The revival and renovation of places of worship such as the Shri Ram Mandir, Kashi Vishwanath Corridor, beautification of Kedarnath and the creation of the Jagadguru Adi Shankaracharya statue are among the major cultural projects of this government. He visits places of worship of different sects.

In the past eight years, Prime Minister Modi has instilled in every citizen a spirit of social awareness, patriotism and a yearning for India’s progress. The Indian diaspora is closer to the country and India’s standing on the world stage is at an all-time high. The cultural awakening he unleashed will reverberate for decades.
