PM Modi's Tenure

Posted 3/14/2019

The most important event that is approaching in Indian calendar is our parliamentary elections. The dates have not been announced yet, but processes are on. Actual voting is due to start from April 2019. It will take a very long time, as India is a huge country with a massive population. Thus the election becomes a massive project that includes movement of work force, material, ballot boxes, security-personnel and any other forces that might be required for such important sensitive activity. But good thing is that India has gone through this exercise many times earlier and it will successfully do it this time again.

Present NDA government took over the reins of the running the country in 2014. BJP was the most powerful party, as it had won maximum seats on its own. PM, Modi has been honest, hardworking and person with foresight. He had led the country from front and allowed every other minister to use their own initiative and intelligence in their ministries. I did not see that anyone was snubbed, restricted or told to do things differently. This government has two women handling the most powerful and important ministries; MEA and MoD.

This government has done so much for actual poor and middle class of the country; mainly for women. On 15 Aug, PM had announced that all the villages will be connected with electricity within a stipulated time and it was done. Secondly PM Modi’s massive ‘cleanliness’ drive pan India has taken roots. His drive against open defecation has worked wonders. Many cities and states are now ODF (open defecation free). It may be known to many but cleanliness actually leads to better health in immediate future. We in India say, ‘cleanliness is next to godliness’.

PM Modi understood a real, practical and unavoidable problem of women while cooking for her family. It’s the smoke from the wood fire. Cooking has to be done and has to be done without fail. So, millions of gas connections via gas cylinders were provided ‘free of cost’ to such families, especially in the north-east of the country. Now these women can cook without shedding tears.

PM Modi has done great job in foreign affairs. He brought so many countries back into our fold. PM Modi has rejuvenated relationships with few countries, people thought were kind of ‘not required or not important to pursue’. I can name Mongolia in this context. He also improved our connections with many nations who always thought were actually ‘not our friends’.

Soon more.
