PM Modi addressed India Today Conclave 2017-Watch Full Speech
PM Narendra Modi addressed the India Today Conclave 2017 in Mumbai via via video conference on Saturday. He was at wittiest best when he countered Arun Puri on Title ‘Distructor In Chief’.
Days after the goods and services tax was approved by the GST Council, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the tax reform step is an example of ‘deliberative democracy’, where states not only participated in the process but took ‘ownership’ of it.
PM Modi said, “GST is an example of delegated democracy. Continuous discussions were held with the states for every clause of the law. GST decision was taken by consensus. All the states have taken the ownership.”
“GST has made us identify the federal structure of India afresh.
Sabka saath, sabka vikas is not only a slogan for us. We have this in every action and decision of our working,” Modi said while delivering his special address at the India Today Conclave 2017 in Mumbai today.
Modi further added, “GST is now ready to roll out. But, it is time for the nation to debate and try to understand as it rolls out.”
