A Month of Hope, A Month of Optimism & A Month of Action

Published By : Admin | June 27, 2014 | 19:25 IST

It’s only been a month since Narendra Modi was sworn in as the 15th Prime Minister of India and the buzzword in the corridors of power has shifted from Acts to Action & from committees to commitment. Ministers are more motivated than ever, committed to deliver as a team with an inspiring captain at the helm of affairs.

The Prime Minister’s first month in office is proof that he means business and is firmly in control of the state of affairs. Importantly Narendra Modi has made efforts to drive a change in the system to get rid of the inertia.

Ethos of efficiency

A firm believer & practitioner of ‘Minimum Government, Maximum Governance’ Prime Minister Narendra Modi  made a unique start by transforming entity of assembled ministries to Organic Ministries to bring more coordination between different departments, will be more effective and bring a speed in process. Narendra Modi eventually aims at Smart Governance through integration & innovation.

The Prime Minister is himself up with first rays of the sun & works till the wee hours in the night. This infectious vibrancy & positivity has spread to the different layers of the Government & officials are putting in their best. The urgency to clear files is palpable.

On the Black Money Trail

The very next day after being sworn in, Narendra Modi’s government announced the formation of a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to bring back black money stashed abroad. The decision was taken in the first meeting of the Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Modi. The Reserve Bank of India has since asked banks to share necessary information with the SIT.

This is in a stark contrast to the past where the Government dragged its feet in taking any concrete step to bring back black money back. This also elicits the priority the Narendra Modi led NDA Government gives to recovering black money.

Paradigm Shift in Governance

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his second Cabinet meeting unveiled a 10-point framework for good governance, assigning importance to the need to empower the bureaucracy to work without the fear. As soon as he took office he made it clear that his mantra for the Centre will be delivery and implementation.

In a first, the Prime Minister also met the secretaries of all government departments personally to outline the agenda of governance, get ideas & suggestions from them & make them partners in the journey of development.

The below tweet is an example of how productive this meeting was:

Strengthening Team India

In a marked departure from the norm of not giving due importance to the state governments, the present government puts special focus on co-operative federalism. The PM’s stress, from day one, has been to take the states along with the Centre to strengthen the federal structure. The PM various chief ministers across party lines and assured full co-operation for the development of various states. Some Tweets from the state leaders who met him:

Proactive Decision Making

Proactive Decision Making _ 684

A remarkable aspect of the NDA Government has been their proactive decision making which helps thwart a crisis like situation & also avoids knee jerk responses. Amidst fears of a weak monsoon, the Government has been quick to review the situation and plan holistically for agriculture and rural economy.

This trait of proactive governance was visible also to counter inflation. The Government was in action immediately when the prices of some commodities were beginning to increase. The Government swung into action swiftly with monitoring of prices of commodities & a minimum export price was imposed soon and a host of other steps were taken. The Centre also advised state governments to delist fruits and vegetables from the Agriculture Produce Marketing Committee Act, which will allow the farmers to sell their produce directly to consumers, without the perishables being routed through mandis or middlemen.

Abolishing Redundant Structures

Narendra Modi has taken a bold step by empowering the ministers & removing Empowered Group of Ministers (EGoMs) and Group of Ministers (GoMs). This step would go a long way to expedite decision-making and usher in greater accountability in the system. This is also in tune with his mantra Minimum Government and Maximum Governance.”

In the first 30 days as the NDA government led by Narendra Modi has made moves to end corruption, ensured the Centre works efficiently and delivers on its targets, abolished redundant structures & taken on inflation. If he could get the country up and running in a month, then we can rest assured that he would completely change the face of the nation in the next 60 months.

And with things moving at this pace, the growth and development is not a distant dream, but only a matter of time!

PM Modi Adorns Colours of North East
March 22, 2019

The scenic North East with its bountiful natural endowments, diverse culture and enterprising people is brimming with possibilities. Realising the region’s potential, the Modi government has been infusing a new vigour in the development of the seven sister states.

Citing ‘tyranny of distance’ as the reason for its isolation, its development was pushed to the background. However, taking a complete departure from the past, the Modi government has not only brought the focus back on the region but has, in fact, made it a priority area.

The rich cultural capital of the north east has been brought in focus by PM Modi. The manner in which he dons different headgears during his visits to the region ensures that the cultural significance of the region is highlighted. Here are some of the different headgears PM Modi has carried during his visits to India’s north east!
