During his address to the nation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi focussed on five pillars to make India self-reliant. The Prime Minister said the pillars are the economy, infrastructure, technology-driven system, vibrant demography and demand.
First Pillar: Economy
PM Modi said government’s endeavour is towards building an economy that brings quantum jump rather than incremental change.
Second Pillar: Infrastructure
PM Modi said infrastructure should be world-class which becomes the identity of modern India.
Third Pillar: Technology-driven system.
The Prime Minister focussed on a technology-driven system which can fulfill the dreams of the 21st century; a system not based on the policy of the past century.
Fourth Pillar: Demography
PM Modi termed India’s vibrant demography as the country’s strength. He said it is the source of energy for a self-reliant India.
Fifth Pillar: Demand
PM Narendra Modi said the cycle of demand and supply chain in the country economy, is the strength which needs to be harnessed to its full potential. He said, “In order to increase demand in the country and to meet this demand, every stake-holder in our supply chain needs to be empowered. We will strengthen our supply chain, our supply system built up with the smell of the soil and the sweat of our labourers.”
