International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) ties up with the Gujarat Government in preserving the State’s flora and fauna.

Shri Modi’s tireless commitment towards protection of the environment has borne extraordinary fruits.

 

In yet another exceptional feat achieved by Gujarat in wildlife conservation,  renowned Global Environmental Organization, International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has tied up with the Gujarat Government in preserving the State’s flora and fauna. Taking into consideration the impact of industrialization on the wildlife, this agreement will benefit Gujarat in acquiring scientific expertise and a concrete plan of action for the protection of bio-diversity.

Environment Conservation has always been a subject close to Shri Narendra Modi’s heart. Under his visionary leader, the Gujarat Government has tirelessly undertaken all-encompassing steps towards the environment whether it be in the form of Van Mahotsav, protecting the Lions of Gir, enhancing the mangrove cover through incentives or encouraging renewable sources of energy.

Shri Modi has also pictured Gujarat as a destination for eco- tourism. He said, “Gujarat has a high level of biodiversity. It is blessed with a huge seacoast, Gulf of Kutch, islands and a variety of local and foreign birds. And so, the state government desires to develop eco tourism and to promote tourism activities for the bird viewers in the state.”

The Gujarat Government’s vision for protection of Mother Nature, Gujarat has borne marvelous fruits! The Nalsarovar Bird Sanctuary was recognized from the world-famous Ramsar Convention. Furthermore, the Wild Ass reserve in the Little Rann of Kutch entered UNESCO’s tentative list of World Heritage Sites. Additionally, Gujarat’s role in enhancing the National Mangrove cover was highly commended by the Forest Survey. Finally, Gujarat has been the first State of the country to have a comprehensive Solar- Policy and among the 4 Governments Worldwide with an exclusive Department of Climate Change.

This momentous act by the State Government and the IUCN will undoubtedly take forward Shri Modi’s commitment towards to a Cleaner and Greener Planet. It will provide a road- map for sustainability of the picturesque natural beauty and bio-diversity of Gujarat. The partnership will deliberate beyond Asiatic Lions and take into consideration all endangered species such as rare turtles and dugong. The support from the IUCN has ascertained a noteworthy course of action to safeguard the Wild Ass, Wetlands including the Flamingo City of Kutch, Sloth bear and Mangroves.

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi delivered a video message to the joint conference of CVC and CBI today. The Conference is taking place at Kevadia, Gujarat.

The Prime Minister noted that the deliberations of the conference are taking place in Kevadia, a place marked by the presence of Sardar Patel, who gave the highest priority to making governance the basis of India’s progress, public concerns and public welfare. “Today, when India is moving towards attaining its grand goals during the Amrit Kaal. Today when we are committed to strengthening pro-people and proactive governance, your action-oriented diligence will give strength to the ideals of Sardar Saheb”, the Prime Minister told the gathering.

The Prime Minister called upon the officers of CBI and CVC to rededicate themselves to abolish corruption from all walks of national life. He said corruption takes away the rights of people and hinders the pursuit of justice for all, nation’s progress and affects the collective power of the nation.

The Prime Minister emphasized that in the last 6-7 years, the government has succeeded in instilling the confidence that it is possible to contain corruption. He said that there is trust that people can get the benefit of the government schemes without middlemen and bribes. Now people feel that corrupt, howsoever mighty, will not be spared, wherever they go. “Earlier, the way the governments and systems were run, they lacked both political and administrative will. Today there is the political will to attack corruption and continuous improvement is also being carried out at the administrative level” he said. Talking about changed India, Shri Modi pointed out “Today, India of the 21st century, along with modern thinking, emphasizes the use of technology for the benefit of humanity. New India Innovates, Initiates and Implements. New India is no longer ready to accept that corruption is part of the system. It wants its system transparent, process efficient and governance smooth.”

Charting the government’s journey from maximum control and maximum damage to minimum government and maximum governance, the Prime Minister explained how his government undertook the task of reduction of government interference in the lives of the common people in a mission mode by simplifying the government procedures. The Prime Minister explained how the government stressed trust and technology to empower the citizens. He said that this government does not mistrust the citizens and that is why, many layers of verification of documents have been removed and many facilities like birth certificate, life certificate for pension are being delivered through technology without middlemen. Steps like the abolition of interviews in Group C and Group D recruitment, an online and faceless procedure in services ranging from gas cylinder booking to tax filing are reducing occasions for corruption.

The Prime Minister said this approach of trust and technology has strengthened efficient governance and ease of doing business. He remarked that many outdated rules regarding permissions and compliances for the businesses have been removed and, at the same time many strict laws in accordance with present-day challenges have been brought. He remarked that much more compliance requirements are intended to be removed and said that most of the permissions and compliances have been made faceless and procedures like self-assessment and self-declaration are being encouraged. GeM, the government e-marketplace has brought transparency in e-tendering. Digital footprints are making investigations easy. Similarly, PM Gati Shakti National Master Plan will remove many difficulties related to decision making. He emphasized that in this march of trust and technology country’s trust in the institutions and officers of CVC, CBI is critical. “We should always keep the motto of nation-first foremost and always judge our work on the touchstone of public welfare and public concern”, he said. He added he will always back such a ‘karamyogi’ whose actions meet these criteria.

The Prime Minister shared his views on ‘preventive vigilance’. He said that preventive vigilance can be achieved with alertness and can be strengthened through technology and experience. Along with technology and alertness- simplicity, clarity, transparency in the processes will go a long way for preventive vigilance. This will simplify our work and save the resources of the nation, he said.

The Prime Minister exhorted the officer not to flinch from taking action against the corrupt and ensure that there is no safe haven for anyone who deceives the country and countrymen. He asked them to remove the fear of the system from the minds of the poorest of the poor. He also called for deliberation regarding technological challenges and cyber fraud.

Recalling his Independence Day call for simplification of laws and procedures, the Prime Minister called upon CVC and CBI and other anti-corruption institutions to remove such processes that come in the way of new India. “You need to strengthen New India’s policy of zero tolerance for corruption. You need to implement laws in a way that poor come close to the system and the corrupt moves out of it”, the Prime Minister concluded.
