HighLights of PM Modi’s Speech at MyGov Town Hall
On good governance:-
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the spirit of democracy is incomplete if one thinks the citizen’s role stops at voting. Participative democracy is essential, he emphasized. He said ‘last mile delivery’ is as important as policies, and the benefits must reach the intended beneficiaries. He said good governance means those processes that are redundant do not exist. Grievance redressal systems are the biggest strengths of a democracy, he added.
On Economic growth and development in India:-
Prime Minister Modi said that if India could grow at 8 per cent for 30 years, it would have all that is best across the world. He asserted that India is growing at a rapid pace despite the global slowdown.
On handloom sector:-
PM Modi said that “Khadi for Nation, Khadi for Fashion,” should be our guiding principle.
On Smart Cities and development of rural areas:-
PM mentioned the Rurban Mission, and said his vision is to provide modern amenities to the rural areas, while retaining the soul of villages.
On Gau Rakshaks or Alleged Cow Protection Group:-
The sacred practice of cow worship & the compassion of Gau Seva can’t be misused by some miscreants posing as Gau Rakshaks. Misdeeds of some, posing as Gau Rakshaks are doing a great disservice to the noble deed of Gau Seva, as practiced by Bapu & Vinoba Bhave. There is absolutely no need for anyone to take the law in his or her hands & disturb the spirit of harmony & togetherness.
“How fast can I grow, how much more productive can I become?” – this should be the thought that drives every Indian”
Development and Good Governance should have a balanced relation.
