Government has only one religion - India first!

Government has one holy book - the Constitution.

The Government must be immersed in only one Bhakti- Bharat Bhakti!

The Government’s only strength is Jan Shakti!

Government’s only ritual is the well being of the 125 crore Indians!

The only code of conduct of the Government should be ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas!

- Narendra Modi

Never before in the history of Independent India has a political leader given such a resounding and mature message of unity with inclusion.

Narendra Modi has come a long way from how the political discourse has been conducted in India. Politicians in India have very often used & thrived on vote banks by playing emotions of one against the other. While some leaders pit one religion against the other, others pit one caste against each other. Some political parties have also tried to ignite the people’s sentiments against industrial development &encash it during the polls.

In such times, Narendra Modi’s thoughts strike a refreshing contrast & provide a much needed alternate perspective on what Unity really means. Narendra Modi has proven to be an apostle of unity and inclusivity having demonstrated how his words could be put into action in Gujarat.

His actions while in office, his policies and his speeches have all reverberated with his message of unity and inclusivity. The most important thing that he has done is to break the myth that growth of a caste, community, religion, village, city or sector has to be at the cost of another. He has shown that development, upliftment and progress need not be a case of one against the other, but it can include everyone.

One of the landmark events happened when Narendra Modi went to Patna to address the Hunkar Rally in October 2013. Bombs were going off in the historic Gandhi Maidan just as he was about to speak. Any other leader would have either panicked or would have incited the crowd against the terror plot. No prepared speech would have been useful at that time. At such a time, Narendra Modi spoke from his heartand delivered a powerful message of peace & unity to both Hindus and Muslims that went to the crux of the principal challenge before our nation. He announced that Hindus and Muslims should together fight poverty instead of fighting among themselves. This is the only way forward for the nation.

At the heart of Narendra Modi’s success lies his Panchamrut philosophy that drives it. This philosophy has a vision for the all-round development at the core of it. Panchamrut is the integration of five different streams which drives growth. This confluence of the panchshakti (five vital powers) of Knowledge, Water, Energy, Security and Human Resources, the five fundamental powers required to achieve holistic and sustainable growth have resulted in unprecedented growth and improvement in the quality of life in the state during his tenure as the Chief Minister of Gujarat.It is the amalgamation of mantra of ‘SabkaSaath, Sabka Vikas’ and Panchamrut philosophy that forms the corner stone of Narendra Modi’s model of governance.

Narendra Modi’s model of development has been unique in the sense that it has not created inequalities or conflicts between contrasting requirements. While his model embraced urbanisation as an opportunity rather than a threat, it made provisions to modernise & improve lives in urban areas. Similarly, while Gujarat has focused on industrial development & investments, agriculture & farmers have been given special attention too. While private entrepreneurs big & small have thrived in the business friendly atmosphere, the Public sector companies have achieved a miraculous turn around too. Gujarat’s GDP growth increased significantly under Narendra Modi along with significant improvement in the social indicators. Technology has been given importance and at the same time people great attention has been given to skill development.

Similarly people from all castes, communities & religions including minorities, & underprivileged sections of the society have progressed, prospered in Gujarat under Narendra Modi.

This model is unique & worth emulating as it focuses on removing fault-lines of discrimination & prejudice. Once everyone is placed on an equal footing & given equal opportunities, it can only result in the creation of a truly equal & healthy society.

Infrastructure and connectivity act as arteries for development and growth of any nation. It is evident that infrastructure development has been given priority by the NDA government under PM Narendra Modi. For fulfilling the dream of New India, the NDA government is focussing on development of railways, roadways, waterways, aviation or affordable housing.

Railways

The Indian rail network is one of the largest railway networks in the world. The pace of track renewal, elimination of unmanned level crossings and commissioning of broad gauge lines has significantly improved during NDA government under PM Modi.

Railways recorded its best-ever safety record with less than 100 accidents in a year in 2017-18. Data reveals that 118 railway accidents were recorded in 2013-14 which have declined to 73 in 2017-18. 5,469 unmanned level crossings have been eliminated, with average pace of elimination at 20% more than that of 2009-14. All unmanned level crossings on broad gauge routes targeted to be eliminated by 2020 for better safety.

Bringing railways development on track, there is a 50% increase in track renewal, from 2,926 km during 2013-14 to 4,405 km during 2017-18. Broad gauge commissioned during 4 years of NDA government under PM Modi (9,528 km) is much greater than that commissioned during 2009-14 (7,600 km).

For the first time Northeast India is fully integrated with the rest of India with the entire network converted to broad gauge. It brought Meghalaya, Tripura and Mizoram on the rail map of India after 70 years of independence!

For developing New India, we need advanced technology too. The bullet train, planned from Mumbai to Ahmedabad, will reduce travel time from about 8 hrs to 2 hrs.

 

Aviation

Rapid progress is happening in civil aviation sector too. Promising affordable air travel under UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Nagrik), 25 operational airports have been added in just 4 years, as opposed to 75 airports between Independence and 2014. Regional air connectivity to unserved and underserved airports at subsidised fare of Rs 2,500 per hour has helped to fulfil dream of many Indians to travel by air. Thus, for the first time more people travelled in airplanes than in AC trains.

With passenger traffic growth in the range of 18-20% in the past three years, India has emerged as the world’s third largest aviation market. Number of domestic air passengers crossed 100 million in 2017.

 

Shipping

India is also taking rapid strides in the shipping sector under PM Narendra Modi’s government. Accelerating port-led development, the turn around time at major ports have been reduced by a third, from 94 hrs in 2013-14 to 64 hrs in 2017-18.

Consider the cargo traffic at major ports. It declined from 570.32 MT in 2010-11 to 545.79 MT in 2012-13. However, under the NDA government it improved to 679.367 MT during 2017-18, a whopping increase of more than 100 MT!

Inland waterways significantly reduce the transportation costs and boost the economy apart from reducing carbon foot print. 106 national waterways were added in the last 4 years compared to 5 national waterways in the last 30 years.

Road development

Expansion of highways with multi-modal integration has been taken up under transformative project Bharat Mala Pariyojana. National highway network expanded from 92,851 km in 2013-14 to 1,20,543 km in 2017-18.

Setu Bharatam project for safer roads, with total outlay of Rs. 20,800 crores, envisages building of railway overbridges or under passes to make all National Highways free of railway level crossings.

The pace of road construction has almost doubled. Speed of highways construction was 12 km per day during 2013-14 which stood at 27 km per day as of 2017-18.

 

Development of India’s longest ever tunnel, Chenani-Nashri, in Jammu as well as India’s longest bridge, Dhola-Sadiya, for enhanced connectivity to Arunachal Pradesh are testimony to the commitment to take development to hitherto untapped regions. Building of bridges over Narmada at Bharuch and Chambal at Kota have also improved road connectivity in the regions.

Roads act as catalysts for rural development. Considering its importance, almost 1.69 lakh kms of rural roads have been built in 4 years. Average speed of road construction improved from 69 km per day in 2013-14 to 134 km per day in 2017-18. Presently, rural road connectivity is more than 82%, as against 56% in 2014, making villages become a part of India’s development trajectory.

Tourism has immense potential for employment generation. To enhance pilgrimage experience along with a boost to the tourism sector, Char Dham Mahamarg Vikas Pariyojana was launched. It seeks to make journey safer, faster and more convenient. It entails development of around 900 km of national highways at an approximate cost of Rs 12,000 crore.

With boost to the infrastructure, more movement of freight takes place and adds strength to the economy. Due to efforts of the NDA government, highest ever freight loading (1,160 MT) was recorded in the year 2017-18.

Urban transformation

For urban transformation through Smart Cities, around 100 urban centres have been chosen to ensure improved quality of living, sustained urban planning and development. Various development projects in these cities will positively impact almost 10 crore Indians. These projects will cost Rs. 2,01,979 crores.

Around 1 crore affordable houses have been built under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana in both rural and urban areas. To benefit the middle and neo middle classes, housing loans up to Rs 9 lakh and Rs 12 lakh are eligible for interest subvention of 4% and 3%.
