Three Best Things about Modi’s Government

            When Modi stormed into power in 2014 by winning Lok Sabha election with massive mandate, he delivered a strong message: “We aren’t  here for any positions but for a responsibility”. From those non-challant IAS officers to MPs, everyone started falling in line. Be it strengthening foreign policy or launching welfare schemes for less-income groups, team Modi has been working hard to fulfill people’s expectations.  Under his leardership, we feel secure, hopeful and optimistic. Here are three areas, according to me, where I feel we have made the right choice:

                Firstly, his Make in India initiative. It was to facilitate investment, boost research and development, ensure product originality and create skill-based jobs by establishing industrial sector; major national program was  started by Narendra Modi. Modi has reached out to the world with his idea of ‘Make in India’ and it has generated positive response from foreign companies. Key Labour Law reform in the pipeline will boost manufacturing industry and foreign investment in the country.

                Secondly, his Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (Clean India Campaign). Swachh Bharat Abhiyan was launched on 2 Oct 2014 by Modi. Dirt is considered one of the major problems in India and Modi gave the issue its due importance by launching a nationwide campaign. According to me, it as a superstroke from Modi as it put him at par with Mahatma Gandhi in opinions and perceptions of people, and also gave people the message to act on hygiene and more importantly - civic sense. Its great for the travel and tourism industry also. Modi nominated notable personalities from film industry, sports, media, business and other celebrities to promote the initiative.

                 Thirdly, Creation of the NITI Aayog to Replace Planning Commission.  Modi formed National Institution of Transforming India (NITI) Aayog, which is a policy think-tank of Government of India that replaced Planning Commission. The panel was abolished along with GOMs and EGOMs which caused policy paralysis under UPA rule. NITI Aayog is headed by PM Modi and its members include top-notch economists, consultants and advisers along the lines of US think-tanks.

                For the first time in 30 years, the BJP arrived to power with an absolute majority and the swearing-in ceremony gave a hint that Team Modi was ready with a plan to change functioning of the country! Overall, in his three years, PM Modi has been hugely obstreperous in his approach to the political economy. He has deliberately chosen to be so in the name of advocating for change for the betterment of the country. Bettering the standards, thus bringing it at par with the world. Keeping aside few hitches, party ideologues such as Ram Madhav argue that people of the country are actively and willingly participating in Modi’s tansformative ideas such as demonetization, tackling corruption, empowering the youth and shunning crony capitalism, even if they have to make sacrifices for it. They are on-board and completely convinced of the fact that Modi’s complex ideas are definitely a work in progress.  Hail, Modi!
